Pearl Arredondo's speeches discuss the difficult facets of inner city school systems, which has become common place in North American school districts.
Arredondo's passion for improving troubled school districts comes from her own upbringing as a child who grew up in a violent gang proliferated community. She received her education from Pepperdine University with a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in Education and Instructional Leadership. She then became a teacher at San Fernando Middle School, which then led to her establishing the school’s Multimedia Academy. After the establishment of the Multimedia Academy, she later helped found the San Fernando Institute for Applied Media (SFiAM), where she aided in reforming the current school system.
