Experience at SAIC
Coming from a multilingual family and witnessing my parents’ immigrant experience, I am honored to work with students in First Year Seminar and English for International Students. I am able to explore topics of class, race, and gender with my students through essays by BIPOC writers, such as Gloria Anzaldua, Audre Lorde, and Ronald Takaki. It is exciting to learn with students starting their university education and critically analyze topics that are uncomfortable and have traditionally been ignored or unseen. In the classroom, we learn to see differences rather than ignore them so an equality of identities, cultures, and experiences can be formed.
