Milly Marie Vega-Pérez

Job: corporate communications specialist, MCS Puerto Rico
ACES member since: 2022
Location: Puerto Rico

ACES involvement: I attend the monthly webcasts whenever possible or access the recordings afterwards. In addition, I attended the ACES VCON in 2022 and 2023. Last year, I served as judge in the Annual Headline Contest, and I became a member of the ACES Communication and Publications Committee.

Why did you join ACES: I was eager to join an editors’ association to hone my skills and meet colleagues from around the world. Editing communications in Spanish and English takes most of my daily work shift and I am always looking for webcasts and other training experiences. Because I learned English as a second language, I wanted to meet native English speakers to engage in conversations and gain confidence.
