La Esperanza de Ser Yo


La Esperanza de Ser Yo (The Hope of Being Me) represents a week’s work created by five high school and middle school students who used photography, drawing, oral histories, zine-making, and mapping projects to collaboratively explore and share their family histories, daily lives, and dreams for the future. The students are part of the Migrant Education Program through the Region 15 Texas Education Service Center, a program that supports school age children and youth of migratory farm workers.


Students: Sofia Jaramillo, Santana Garcia, Wilton Presencin, Jose Presencin, and Yadira Barajas; Teachers/Artists: Elizabeth Rangel, Monica Diaz, Jason Reed, Ryan Sprott, and Daniela Hernandez
