In 2016, I was approached by an organization in El Salvador about writing a book with 60 other young Salvadoreans from around the world who are giving a positive image to our society through the type of work that we do in our communities.
While the book, now in its 2nd edition, is currently written in Spanish I would like to share my chapter with the University of Houston-Downtown.
The title of my chapter is translated to
Youth: Community, Education, and Empowerment. The theme of my chapter pertains to all the work that I have done throughout the years with various communities, and the relationship that I have fostered with politicians and various leaders by using tools that I have learned throughout Ph.D. I discuss the importance of consensus building through education, and how it can be used as a tool to not only empower our youth but the growth of our communities.
In the chapter, I credit the University of Houston-Downtown for allowing me to grow and publish this book.
