Grisel is a parent trainee, as she has a child with multiple disabilities. She has been on the Commission of Disability for New Haven and works with elderly with disabilities, and has also advocated for academic, medical, and community services within the school system. Grisel wants to advocate for students with disabilities within the school system. She would like to learn more and research what legal, medical, and vocational services are available as well as whether these services are provided in Spanish. She plans to use her time at LEND to gain knowledge of the laws and available services so that she can serve as a better advocate for the Latin community and those who do not have sufficient English language skills and guidance to get the services they need. She is additionally working towards a Master’s Degree in Management and Organizational Leadership and a certification in Health Coaching.
