“When we were introduced to Mariana Atencio, our team immediately felt connection with her story and frame, and the inspirational and motivational messages she shares about authenticity and the power of being YOU. We were honored to have the opportunity to welcome Mariana to our virtual neighborhood for our first program offered in Spanish, with simultaneous English and American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation. Having Mariana deliver her program in Spanish not only made it accessible and inclusive, but it also demonstrated the tremendous pride and strength Mariana celebrates in being multilingual and multicultural. We look forward to working with team GOLike again soon!”
