StoryCorps Phoenix: Daniel and Gloria Abril
We are pleased to share the voices and conversations of our community from StoryCorps Phoenix. StoryCorps Phoenix is the project that records the stories of everyday people and archives them at the Library of Congress.
The StoryCorps Mobile Booth is parked at the Phoenix Art Museum and has been very busy. We’ll air a conversation each Monday on KJZZ as part of the Phoenix visit.
Today, a conversation with Daniel and his aunt Gloria Abril.
Daniel struggled during the early years of his life with emotional and psychological problems. Even after being diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses, Daniel is able to cope and function as a young adult.
Gloria is an advocate for her nephew Daniel. They came to StoryCorps Phoenix to talk about Daniel’s experiences.
