Volunteer: Norma Robles
Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project serves some of the most vulnerable immigrants in the Los Angeles area so that all immigrants have access to their deserved education and representation.
Norma Robles has been a volunteer interpreter with Esperanza Immigrants Rights Project since 2014 and has shown exceptional dedication and quality of work over the past 5 years, especially with Esperanza’s youngest clients. Norma’s own immigrant story, caring nature, and unique skills as an interpreter, which she has developed over many years of informal and formal training, allows her to make clients feel comfortable enough to relive and recount details of their traumatic stories. Despite having a full time job as a flight attendant and volunteering with other organizations, she has managed to consistently and whole-heartedly contribute to Esperanza’s work - always willing to step in when special help is needed.
