2005 ITF Intern, North Carolina Farmworker's Project, Benson, NC
Update from March 2011
I currently reside in Durham, NC. I recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Master of Public Health and Master of Social Work (Sí Se Puede). While studying I realized that I wanted to work internationally and am currently working on finalizing the details for a job in Central America. My heart is still in farmworker justice but through my education have been exposed to many other important issues. I hope to continue working somehow with farmworkers as I also expand my focus to sexual minorities, women, and children.
