Launched by student leaders interested  in learning how to use social media to strengthen communication skills and amplify the immigrant perspective, Tu Voz Digital (TVD) is a community journalism project that engages production teams in using digital technologies to produce monthly live-steamed news and interviews for Spanish-speaking audiences. 

Tu Voz Digital is a space for learning, discussion and basic community journalistic creation. TVD seek to achieve this community empowerment through journalism training and coordination with groups of immigrant leaders capable of producing informative blogs with a wide range of format and content, audio, visual and written. The content primarily focuses on stories about the meaning of the immigrant struggle in New Mexico, including the experiences of Encuentro students, their contributions as participants in society, and their own evolution and development. In addition, it promotes the richness of our cultures, our daily struggle, and the pride we feel in our lives.

This year, Encuentro is proud to present its group of community journalists, who produce (through a 3-step process: preparation, creation and editing) interesting blogs \ interviews with topics of interest to our community and whose content is exposed on the digital platforms of Encuentro each month. They represent the voice of the immigrant in New Mexico.

Guille Quiroz

My name is Guille Quiroz, I’m originally from Guadalajara, Mexico. I work in the healthcare area as a medical interpreter at the University of New Mexico Cancer Center. News is part of my life to help me understand my surroundings and the world. I realized when I was young that news and media are strong powers that influence our thoughts both culturally and socio-politically; they have been manipulated and most times they don’t cover perspectives of our communities’ struggles. This is why I participate in ‘Tu Voz Digital’, to contribute in giving strength to the voice of our immigrant community within Encuentro.
