I was honored to participate on a panel with smart, confident and powerful women. We spoke about our respective fields and discussed all the positive and negative experiences that accompany what we do. ILEANA MENDOZA works as a Community Coordinator for the New York District Attorney's Office, EVA TURNER is a Social Worker and passionate about education, mental health and creating safer spaces, and OFFICER RAMONA GOMEZ is a strong and compassionate police officer always willing to go above and beyond. It was incredibly inspiring and uplifting to see all the enthusiasm and potential in all the young girls at Grand Street Settlement.
