Shelene Zárate

Conectados is a bilingual radio and video show hosted and created by Monona resident Shelene Zárate with support from the City of Monona. The show is run fully by volunteers with the intention of bringing diversity to the City of Monona through interviews that share local information, traditions and perspectives from other cultures and latin music. Shelene was inspired to start the show to share her language and Mexican culture to our community while learning about the perspectives of the diverse cultures in Monona.

Shelene is also a talented marketer and is available for translation/interpreting projects and offers cultural inclusion resources and Spanish integration ideas for your business, such as conferences, consultations and staff training.

Meet Ben, a MESBA member, and a curious mind at the intersection of technology, AI, and the everyday world. This website was born out of a fascination with how artificial intelligence is transforming our lives. Along the way, I recognized that much of the information shared isn’t practical for everyday users. Often, it’s presented in a way that doesn’t necessarily improve the reader’s professional or personal life and may even create more confusion.

My goal is to share insights with you, offering a fresh viewpoint on how we can all adapt and thrive in this rapidly evolving digital era.  Head to RobotsArePeople.net.
