Yuliana Ventura, SAF Levante Leadership Institute youth member
One of the big issues that was revealed to me this year through the Levante program was the disparities that farmworker children face throughout North Carolina. I was able to learn about this by working with Wake Forest University School of Medicine on a child labor research study and also having an information session with a Wake Forest representative. As a group, we were allowed to brainstorm ideas and choose which information we believed should be included in an infographic to raise awareness on this matter. I believe that I was able to impact the farmworking community by helping create this infographic which will educate others on these important issues.
