Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre Grad Intern Rosa Pruneda, the first in her family to attend college, was awarded first place in the 2012 VOCES Oral History Project. The VOCES Oral History Project was founded by Dr. Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez in 1999 and was created to recognize and document Latino and Latina contributions to the World War II era.
As a participant, Rosa’s challenge was to create a five minute video explaining the life and experiences of one particular person, using film footage, photographs, music and an actual oral interview of the chosen person. Rosa chose Carmen Contreras Bozak, a Puerto Rican member of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps during WWII.
