Workshop at the Kapor Center

Frances Coronel on LinkedIn: โ€œAs part of the #LatinxLevelUp program, I participated in an oped writing workshop yesterday at the Kapor Center with a Carolina Perez by The OpEd Project and taught by Teresa Puente. ๐Ÿ“ I experimented with the prompt โ€œDonโ€™t fuck with my time (or why you should hesitate before asking for something from someone you donโ€™t know)โ€ but I may revisit that all together. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Overall, I had a great experience and I highly recommend the workshop to other women or people or color who would like to have their arguments and voices gain more visibility through the power of words. โœ’๏ธ Shout out to the other participants as well - I enjoyed getting to know some of you better! ๐Ÿ’› Tiffany Price ยถ Josh Torres ยถ Lili Gangas ยถ Carolina Perez ยถ Edgardo Perez, Ed.M. ยถ Madelyn Tavarez ยถ Michael A.
