In this episode, we sit down with Elsa Ascencio as part of a continuation of Off the Tracks’ series about law school debt. Elsa is a workers’ rights lawyer based in Toronto. She is the proud daughter of Salvadoran refugees and being raised in a low income community. We discuss what drew Elsa to workers’ rights law, the intersections of mental health and student debt, the financial cost of seeking mental health support, and her creative business.
