Alumna to Appear Dec. 4 on Teletón USA 

(posted 12-3-15)

Juana Ortiz (Class of 2009) will appear Friday evening as a guest on the live broadcast of Teletón USA, on Univision, the Spanish-language television station found locally on Cablevision’s Channel 16.

Juana, who has cerebral palsy, was interviewed last month by Univision about her memoir, I Made It, which was published in November and describes the challenges she faced as an immigrant and person with a disability who struggled to obtain a college degree.

The interview will be aired during the Friday segment of the two-day telethon which raises funds for people with disabilities. Teletón USA live broadcast starts December 4 at 9:00 pm.
