Now Batting - Juliza Gracesqui

Hello! My name is Juliza Gracesqui. I am from the Dominican Republic but was born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y. I studied at Lehman College, and I earned my bachelor's degree in communications. I was fortunate enough to work at The American Dream High School and there I discovered the deeper meaning of what I wanted to do career wise. The students there inspired me to chase my dreams and challenge myself to be the best that I can be. There I understood a true passion for helping people who are in need. I found the MLB Baseball Assistance Team (B.A.T.) through a friend. Later on, I learned that it would be a wonderful opportunity to assist former athletes just like I impacted students’ lives at American Dream HS. I’m proud to be a part of the B.A.T. family and impacting people’s lives in such a positive way. I look forward to the journey and the experiences that are yet to come.
