Isabella Ventura inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in April 2019. Isabella has been involved in the formative years of the UCSF Center of Excellence in Transgender Health, where she has returned to play a pivotal role in the organization of the National Transgender Health Summit. In these roles, she has helped to build a movement. She plays a leadership role in a global network of transgender women living with HIV. She will graduate in June with her Masters of Science in Nursing from UCSF and has in recent years completed an array of clinical experiences. Isabella is kind, thoughtful and generous even as she is dedicated and passionate.
About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude
“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr
I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.
This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.
Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
