And so we’ve arrived at my final entry into my blog. ALMA is currently underway and as I was not able to make the journey to De Sales to help volunteer, I am finalizing my last few assignments. The opening of LHM is all but finalized, with me only waiting on a few responses from people to update me on a few final logistical points. Now we are focusing more so on the closing event and other minor events. I am the one in charge of confirming speakers for the event and am doing so with all the enthusiasm of an intern.
Overall I would say the experience has been quite enjoyable. I learned many new skills and refined others. The biggest thing that I am taking away is pride in having contributed to the Latinx community, no matter how small the contribution might’ve been. It’s been a pleasure planning these events and I can’t wait to see them come to fruition.
