Notes

Abstract:
For SPOHP's Summer 2013 Oral History Seminar class. Mireya Ledesma is one of eight children born to her farm laborer parents. In this podcast, she describes being looked down upon by other children for her parents’ occupations, the strange mix of shame and pride she felt in reaction, the responsibility she felt as the oldest daughter to help raise her younger siblings, and the ways in which farmworkers’ poor educations and the lack of informational outreach sometimes make it difficult for them to link health issues to pesticide exposure.
