“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.” ~ Paulo Freire
Born in a humble neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas, I got involved in ethnographic research on local Chicana/o and multi-racial and multi-gendered social justice non-profits while I attended university. I moved to California in 2001 to attend graduate school at UC Santa Cruz where I studied media, activism, and social change. I am currently doing collaborative research on student equity and theories of social change and racial and gender representation.
