Promoting a change among the healthcare disparities among low-income and undocumented communities.
Project: My Puksta Project for this upcoming academic year is to get involved with different social services agencies that promote a change among the healthcare disparities among low-income and undocumented communities. I plan to work along social services agencies that have hands on help or that provide the tools, information, and needs certain communities are limited to.
Inspiration: What inspired to choose my Puksta Project was my own personal and family experience. Coming from an undocumented family and being an undocumented myself I know the struggles and obstacles families face to receive access or adequate healthcare services. In fact, the current policies and social aspects of our society took take this social issues to the attention of others as many people are not aware.
Future Plans for Project: I truly honestly hope to become the start of change and aspirations of future generation to pursue the same passion to make a change within our communities and the healthcare. I defiantly try my best to in fact start a new organization or join any social services that reaches to the community on personal level specially in our current political climate. Help families get access to proper information on payments options, guidance, and language barriers support.
