Thoughts from attendees

Today your message really touched me because I live that same reality… Growing up as a minority is a hard but as well motivates you to strive and be the best of the best. We all have the same amount of opportunities in life we just have to take advantage of them and hit them head on. Today you made that clear for all the young Latino people

Many people talk about changing others’ lives. You’re the one doing it!

It was such a pleasure to meet and work with you! I can’t wait for more engaging conversations on equity in Dual Language Education!
