It takes courage to move away from home for college, but after staying in the states for work, Raquel Victoria Maria Maldonado Navarro watched her hometown suffer its most devastating losses on the news and social media while she was nearly 4,000 miles away in San Francisco.

 

Her home, the nation island of Puerto Rico, was hit by the most destructive natural disaster since Katrina in September, but the recent tragedy has been overlooked due to other massacres on the mainland.

 

On this episode of Max Out Time, Harvard grad and former president of La Organización De Puertorriqueños en Harvard, Raquel Navarro, and I bring you an in-depth discussion on the hurricane’s effects on the Puerto Rican government, infrastructure, and most importantly its citizens, some still without power.
