Taught by Frank Peralez
Workshop Synopsis: Interpreters everywhere play a part in the community from a county or municipal level to an international level. In this workshop we will learn how to unpack the identities we carry, understand the amount of impact we have on the decisions that we make, and how we can apply that impact in a positive way.
