Betty Esperanza met Sterling Downey, Founder of UnderPressure when she asked him to guest host on the Arts & Culture Show that she directed. It was her first show and it launched her weekly show for several months. If you get the chance to meet Sterling, his mission has impregnated the community with profound values and acceptance of art, graffiti, skateboarding and community action.

Pretty proud to be part of the UnderPressure family. Thanks Sterling for all your years of positive action!
