University of Washington Bothell's Public Information Specialist, Elisabeth Schnebele, wrote an article about our Latino Leadership Initiative (LLI) program. The article contains statements from UW Bothell's LLI advisors, Dr. Victoria Breckwich-Vasquez and Felicity Abeyta, about the intergenerational impact their LLI students have through their mentorship project with Bothell High School students.
Dr. Breckwich-Vasquez is an affiliate assistant professor and lecturer in UW Bothell’s School of Nursing & Health Studies, and Felicity Abeyta is a pre-major academic adviser in UW Bothell’s Student Success Center.
The article also features a testimonial from Maria Valentina Palacios, a 2022 University of Washington Bothell alumna and LLI alumna as well as a paralegal in immigration. Palacios reflected on her own experience with her mentee in which she was proud to see her mentee succeed through her support.
This program is in partnership with Edmonds College, Skagit Valley College, and the University of Washington Bothell where we have seminars and speakers who train Latino students to be leaders, not only in words but in action through community projects each group completes.
