Interview with LaTesha Gonzales
“I was already a huge advocate for my son Gabriel. So at school, and no matter what, like everybody knows, I'm telling you what his needs are. And it's becoming
an advocate for myself and to say, listen, I'm uncomfortable or I can't. I need a break from this, or this is too loud. It's allowed me to to speak up more.”
