    CHICAGO, IL, October 30, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Frank Latin has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

After administering the Occupational Employment Statistics survey as a statistical research supervisor for the Illinois Department of Employment Security between 2000 and 2005, Mr. Latin joined the United States Department of Labor as an immigration program analyst. In this capacity, he examines Foreign Labor Certification applications for various employment-based visa programs. Driven to have a positive effect on his community, he founded Westside Media Project (WMP) in 2006. Through its programming, the organization works to inspire urban youth to develop skill sets that will allow them to compete in the 21st century global economy.

As the Executive Director, Mr. Latin oversees the daily operations of the youth enrichment program that helps participants develop networks, opportunities, and pathways to viable career paths.

An expert in his field, Mr. Latin earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Roosevelt University in 1991. Subsequently, he expanded upon his professional knowledge by earning a Master of Arts in Economics from the same institution just three years later. Due to his vast breadth of professional achievements, he was honored as a Man of Excellence by the Chicago Defender in 2021.

Within the coming years, Mr. Latin intends to focus his professional efforts on growing the Westside Media Project, which initiated its Global Partners Project in recent years. Ultimately, he is determined to raise five million dollars to establish their own media arts and cultural center. The standalone center will allow Mr. Latin to start Westside Media's Jumpstart to Media Program and expand the Global Partners Project.
