WriteGirl Alumna Janel Pineda

This impact report was the summer project of a WriteGirl intern hired with a grant from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Our intern, Janel Pineda (a former WriteGirl mentee, who is currently a junior at Dickinson College), conducted numerous interviews, wrote content, and worked closely with our graphic designer and WriteGirl staff to complete this report.
