  • Research Statement
    I am interested in exploring some of the in and out of class experiences that strengthen sense of belonging on college campuses among low income first generation college students of color. The purpose of this research is to influence institutional policies that support the success of marginalized communities. In addition, I would like to explore the strengths and talents that low income first generation students of color from Camden NJ bring to college campuses. Findings from this research can break down stereotypes and stigmas, and share the voices of underrepresented populations that usually go unheard.
