In The Know: Deaf Latines Y Familias

As a third year Cultural Studies Student, and now a Mellon Public Scholar, I conducted a summer project in Southern California. Over the summer of 2021, I worked with Deaf Latinos y Familias Organization to establish curriculum, community workshops, and aided in linking resources for higher educational opportunities. Although my summer ambitions were not all met in the summer, the possibility of furthering them for years to come is a possibility thanks to my involvement and the Mellon Public Scholars program. I now have the possibility to further my partnership and grow while still being in community.
