Gladis Ramirez (Alliance Gertz-Ressler High School Class of 2023 and UCLA Class of 2027) is being introduced as the teen honoree in Los Angeles. Ramirez aspires to create her own business to market secondhand and reasonably-priced apparel to her neighborhood. "I value persistence because it has allowed me to get to where I am now," she said. "I would have been mentally unstable and missed out on the chance to enroll in top universities and pursue my aspirations."
Sonia Menon, chief operating officer of Neal Gerber Eisenberg, has been selected as the executive honoree in Chicago for her commitment to mentorship and her work designing her firm's corporate social responsibility program, including initiatives that enhance recruitment, advancement, and retention of traditionally underrepresented lawyers. Menon's award will be presented by colleague Elizabeth Radichel who is also a member of Step Up's national board of directors.
Monica Laddaran (Dominican University Class of 2022) is being honored as the Young Adult Honoree in Chicago. Laddaran's career goal is to make an impact on others through working with clients or using her creative skills to improve experiences: "I believe everyone deserves an equal chance at anything," she said "no matter what background you may have or come from."
