On December 7th, Found in Translation held our annual Program Celebration for our most recent class – the Class of 2019! This annual event is the most anticipated event of the year – it is a time when we celebrate the great achievements of our students with the whole Found in Translation community. This special day marks the completion of our certificate program for our students, and the beginning of their new careers as professional medical interpreters!
Held for the first time at the Geological Lecture Hall within Harvard University, the event this year was well attended – with over 100 guests and community members present to support and celebrate our most recent program graduates.
Our speaking program included remarks from board member Carolina Tejedor Meyers, executive director Maria Vertkin, and two program participants – Sulima Elballa (Class of 2019) and Natalia Chilcote (Class of 2013). This year we also celebrated the special accomplishments of our alumnae instructors, who now represent over 75% of our program faculty.
