The youngest sibling of a multicultural military family, CoCo Brown is no stranger to hard times. Brown and her mother became homeless and had to fend for themselves, living out of a vehicle and even becoming squatters. After six months of being homeless, Brown was able to find housing again and immediately re-enrolled as a full-time MiraCosta College student. Brown went on to pursue a double major in kinesiology and and health sciences.Read More About Coco-
