Yudidt Nonthe Sanchez joined College Bound AZ as a junior in high school for help with scholarships and her college-going steps.

Yudidt has served in numerous internships and community organizations. In 2022 she was appointed to the City of Mesa Human Relations Advisory Board to help city counsel with issues involving diversity, culture, disabilities, ethnicity and more.
