Preline Bonifacio


A conversation with Preline Bonifacio



Welcome to the active variable, A show where we talk to young professionals in the healthcare field or students who are on their way into this industry. Our mission is to bring more attention to these careers whose job it is to take care of others, to be selfishly unselfish and to make this one at bat of life the best that it can be.

1st message

Today, we are going to be having a conversation with Preline Bonifacio, she is a certified athletic trainer in the state of California. She graduated from Cal State Northridge in 2017.

Before we get started with the show I want to take a moment to highlight something important that is going on in the athletic training world of California right now. The state still remains the only one in the United States that does not have any regulations set in place for athletic trainers. There is a bill in motion called AB1665, authored by assemblymember Rob Bonta of Oakland that aims to change this. The bill will

  1. Ensure that individuals calling themselves athletic trainers in California high schools have the appropriate education and certification to do so.
  2. Require athletic trainers to collaborate with physicians and update their knowledge and skills on a regular basis.
  3. Protect qualified athletic trainers from legal and financial consequences when traveling with their teams to states that require licensure.
  4. Decrease liability for athletic trainers and their employers (many of which are taxpayer supported institutions) by providing a state sanctioned scope of practice.
For more information on how you can help get this bill passed you can visit the california athletic trainers association website at

Now let’s get started with the show…



Alright active nation, you are what you put in to your body and mind, you’ve been listening to Preline with some tips and tricks to continue to build your positive habits and live your wildest dreams. We hope you enjoyed this conversation and we’ll catch you on the next one. Stay Active

Nery Edwin Monroy: Loving Father, Tio to many

Nery Edwin Monroy: Loving Father, Tio to many

By Jimbo Times / Culture / February 10, 2020

On January 31st, 2020, Nery Edwin Monroy, a father of four, passed away at the age of 50 years old due to a liver and kidney failure.

Nery left behind his former wife of twenty years, as well as four children. His three daughters and single son are all under 30 years old, and were each alongside Nery at bedside until his last breath.

In my years of working for the community in East Hollywood, no single family has come together like a team to support and advance the work of uplifting the neighborhood alongside me the way the Monroy family has. Ed Monroy’s voice helped me launch J.T. The L.A. Storyteller Podcast, and Kryzia and Darcy Monroy supported both Back 2 School Parties in East Hollywood in 2018 and 2019.

I know from these experiences that the family’s future remains bright, but that this time is also filled with other transitions. Ed graduated from Cal State University Northridge just last year. This Fall 2020, Kryzia will begin her classes at Cal State Los Angeles following one last semester at Los Angeles City College.

It’s thus a small token of my gratitude for the Monroy family to uplift their mourning and recovery process following this loss.

Te Doy Gracias, Papá

Te Doy Gracias, Papá

By Darcy Monroy / Culture / February 16, 2020

Estoy triste porque mi papá ya no está físicamente en este mundo. Pero también en paz porque el está descansando. No puedo poner todas mis emociones en solo una palabra pero son muchas. Les voy a compartir una letra que le escribí a mi papá.

Gracias. Gracias por lo trabajador que erras. Gracias por la relación que teníamos, como amigos. Por enseñarme que la vida se debe de vivir alegre. Muchos no saben la lucha que tú tenías. Y tu forma de escapar tus problemas no fue la más saludable, más bien, te nos quitó. Pero yo ya no estoy enojada, ni te puedo juzgar. Es Mas, te agradezco. Ese tu error me hizo una persona mas sabia. Me dejaste muchas lecciónes importantes. Me hiciste una persona mas empatica a los que sufren de la misma enfermedad. Y muchos diran que el alcoholismo no es enfermedad pero solo es porque nunca la han experenciado. Nunca han vivido con alguien que sufre de eso. Y yo escuzo su ignorancia. Gracias por las ultimas memorias que me diste. Tirastes tus chistes hasta el último día que pudiste hablar. Tu sonrisa aclaraba cualquier cuarto. Te hacías amigos con todos. Y así es como te recordaré.
