Abel Núñez was the first person in his family to speak English, and as a result, from a very early age he was often asked to translate for his family. Fast-forward decades later, and Abel — who arrived in the U.S. with his family from El Salvador in 1979 — continues to be a vital bridge between recent immigrants and the larger community.
