The Journey Begins

Welcome to my page! Let the journey start with Anzaldúa’s words…

In “The Journey: Path of Conocimiento,” Chicana feminist, Gloria Anzaldúa explains that “You struggle each day to know the world you live in, to come to grips with the problems of life. Motivated by the need to understand, you crave to be what and who you are. A spiritual hunger rumbles deep in your belly, the yearning to live up to your potential.” These words resonate with my commitment as woman of color educator, interdisciplinary scholar, and most of all as a mentor. My engagement in academia responds to a need to make sense of the world we live in, always striving to reach my full potential.
