About the Author
I attended Professor’s Dolberry’s BEDUC 330 Race, Culture and Identity course spring 2016. I learned that in order to end racist educational gaps, I not only have to change minds and hearts; but systems that have oppressed students of color, minorities and immigrants in the U.S.
I am an immigrant in the U.S. I attained higher education but it took me twice as long as a traditional student. I am a women of color who goes through racism, sexism and yet is determined to change systems to allow more students of color a chance to have a career and a position that we also deserve as human beings in this world.
My plans are not to become an educator in a classroom but a lawyer whom will counsel on the rights of everyone to an equal chance to higher education.
The Class was an amazing experience and I am glad that I also had the privilege of sitting in the most diverse row of the class.
