Political Science and Spanish
International Studies with a Latin American emphasis
Research interests include intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, transnationalism, globalization, African Diaspora in Central America and the Caribbean and cultural studies.
After graduation in December 2013, I plan to pursue a master’s and doctoral degree in Latin American Studies, African Diaspora and or Cultural Studies within Spanish, Anthropology or History. I envision myself as a professor/scholar of comparative theories and practices of race, class, gender and sexuality, transnational culture and politics- particularly on these issues in the Caribbean and Latin America. In my spare time I enjoy singing, dancing, exercising (an avid runner), recreational sports, reading, listening to music, traveling and exploring. I am currently the vice president of the Latin American Student Organization, a student activist, a writer and performer in Awareness through Performance, and an invited presenter in the Office of Multicultural Student Services Retreat.
