Mariela Mancia Pineda is a member of the class of 2023 originally from El Salvador but now residing in Boston, MA pursuing a concentration in the Spanish & Portuguese Department. She is interested in researching language policy in the Boston area and its application in secondary schools teaching Spanish language. She is particularly interested in looking at how a school's approach to teaching Spanish language affects Latine students' ethnic and cultural identity. What brings me joy: spicy food, anything that is purple, and I like painting even though I am not good at it.
Concentration: Spanish & Portuguese
