Today we end our series on local Latin American immigrants who have achieved success in their fields. Meet Douglas Mejia, news director at Telemundo Washington.

Douglas is originally from El Salvador and has been living in the US for a decade. When he first came to this country, he started working at a kitchen in Maryland, but quickly found a job in journalism, his career in El Salvador. He applied for a job at Telemundo when the station first started its local newscast ten years ago and despite a limited command of English when he first arrived, his past experience and passion landed him a place at the station. He now uses his position for the benefit of the Latino community in the greater Washington area. “Our community is always present in my work, and every decision or news report that we produce is thought out to help Latinos in the metropolitan area,” he said.
