Katya Velasco – Kynd Kit Production Manager

I’m Katya Velasco. I’m currently pursuing a translation and interpretation certification at Community College of Aurora. Since I was a little kid I’ve struggled with mental health and coming from a Hispanic/Latino background where mental health isn’t important or it’s just being lazy, I wasn’t taken seriously and I suffered my mental illnesses by myself. Finding a place to work where mental health is as important as physical health was an important thing for me and I found it at Project Helping, an amazing place where you can be yourself, where you can find help within the people who are there and are willing to help you be your best self.
