Workshop at the Kapor Center


Frances Coronel on LinkedIn: “As 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. 📝 I experimented with the prompt “Don’t fuck with my time (or why you should hesitate before asking for something from someone you don’t know)” but I may revisit that all together. 😂 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. ✒️ Shout out to the other participants as well – I enjoyed getting to know some of you better! 💛 Tiffany Price ¶ Josh Torres ¶ Lili Gangas ¶ Carolina Perez ¶ Edgardo Perez, Ed.M. ¶ Madelyn Tavarez ¶ Michael A. Urbina ¶ Jessenia Francisco ¶ Cynthia Duran ¶ Meghna Mahadevan ¶ Maria Antonia Hernandez”
