Hola, amigos/as! I wanted to share with you my latest post on the LLI. It's about meeting one of the greatest labor organizers in the country, Eliseo Medina, who worked with Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta in Delano, California. I also discuss discrimination and racial biases and how we can stand up to injustice.

It was great seeing Dr. Carrasco again this year at the 2012 LLI. He will always live in my heart as the man who introduced my Aztec moment.

Story
Tagline
MDC grad working @ the U. Aspiring writer & teacher at heart. Believes in life over money.
Introduction

Jessica was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey to Colombian parents and has lived (mostly) in Miami, Florida. She is a first generation college student and a graduate of Miami Dade College’s paralegal studies program. Jessica made a career change to pursue her passion for education by accepting a position at the University of Miami.

Jessica is committed to civic involvement, having held various leadership positions in student, non-profit and paraprofessional organizations. The most impacting, however, was her nomination to Harvard’s Latino Leadership Initiative, during which her and her cohort founded 305 Rise, a peer-to-peer leadership development program to increase MDC’s retention rates by engaging and providing mentorship to 20 first-year, first-generation minority students.  

In 2012, Jessica was nominated by MDC President Eduardo Padrón for the Newman Civic Fellow Award, recognizing one student college-wide for leadership and civic engagement.

Jessica is pursuing her degree in Journalism with a minor in Sociology at the University of Miami. You can follow her on her blog at www.jessicaagiraldo.com or on Twitter @jessicag820.
