“The best part of my experience in communicating with the Hispanic public for more than a decade has been finding the authenticity and personality that is key for Latin Americans.

MARKETING STRATEGIST & PROJECT MANAGER
“One piece of advice I’d give a fellow journalist is to always go back to the code of ethics. Our job is to seek truth and report it, even when the truth is unpopular, and that means inviting criticism. When it comes to sharing other people’s stories, there needs to be mutual trust. That means bringing humanity, truth, and accuracy while minimizing harm.”
MARKETING SPECIALIST & PROJECT MANAGER
“Professional growth is a significant value in the workplace. Although mistakes are inevitable, they can offer valuable learning experiences. When individuals are given the chance to tackle challenging tasks, they become competent and self-assured, making valuable contributions to the overall success and productivity of the workplace.”
“My advice to graphic designers starting their career would be to spend some time exploring their creativity in personal projects. This provides them freedom of expression, improves technique, increases skills, and they will constantly learn.”
“For those starting out in graphic design, recognize the value of networking. Connections and professional networking can significantly influence the trajectory of one’s career. Take advantage of social events like dMob organized by AIGA Portland, which offers a welcoming environment to engage with the design community.”
