This is Isabel's fourth and final year on the La Puma staff. But while she's not writing or editing articles, one can find Isabel on the phone, talking to people from foreign countries who are learning English.


"ESL Helpers is a program where you talk to people who are learning English as a 2nd language," said Owens, who has been participating in ESL since June.


It can get difficult sometimes, however, because of the major time difference between the US and Asia. "It's hard to coordinate, and sometimes I have to call them at weird times," she said.


Isabel also tutors middle school students through the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Diablo Valley and tutors Oakland kindergarteners in literacy.
