I had an inspiring chat with Yunuen, who is a first-year doctoral student in social work at University of Chicago. Her younger sister is a freshman in high school. I interviewed her about being a first-generation college graduate, the path she took from her neighborhood high school to a top program, her journey as an undocumented (DACA) Latina and proud advocate for others in similar circumstances.

Mark Smithivas - November podcast challenge

I'll be interviewing interesting people I've met on multiple social networking platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and elsewhere. This is for the November #NaPodPoMo 30-day podcasting challenge, but also really to kickstart my audio production and facilitation skills.
