As the daughter of immigrants, she learned early on the importance of being able to navigate the complicated system. Jessica has worked towards participating in her communities, and helping to strengthen them by connecting them with the wellness resources available throughout the IE. As Digital Coordinator, Jessica joins the IC4IJ team to share her skills and build community through sharing stories and experiences that run throughout the IE. Through this work, she will uplift immigrant narratives that contribute to the work that defends and empowers our communities.
