Celebrating Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

As we continue to celebrate AANHPI Heritage Month, we’re proud to feature Zeinna Mara Estrada, MWBC’s Training & Events Coordinator. She joined MWBC in March and has already made significant contributions to the team and the clients we serve. She generously shared part of her story with us:

My mother is a first-generation immigrant from Baguio, Philippines. She came to the United States in 1989 at the age of 22 looking for a life that was better than what the Philippines had to offer her. I have an immense amount of pride for my Filipino heritage, as the culture is so rich. I am especially grateful for the delicious food and always being surrounded by music, dancing, and family!

Working at MWBC has exposed me to the most diversity I have ever experienced in a workplace. I am so proud to be part of an organization that aims to lift others up regardless of racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Groups that are usually left at a disadvantage are truly supported and seen at MWBC.
