"Just because I am an immigrant, just because I am a woman, just because I am half Afro-Latina or half-Malay, I can still do it. You have the same power that I do." - Ish Gayle

Ish Gayle shares with us how she grew up in Panama City, Panama with a Malaysian father and an Afro-Latina mother and her experience moving to the US as a young adult. Ish also talks about her time working for the Atlanta Regional Commission and her path to obtaining a college degree later in life

She also describes her work with the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GHCC) and the Center for Pan Asian Community Services in Atlanta (CPACS). Her work with EME Mujer, Empowering, Motivating, and Empowering Latinas, a GHCC program also holds a special place in her heart.
