We all strive to see the other succeed and I could not ask for a better group. I thought that coming into nursing school that I would have everything covered but not realizing that there was a lot of underlying details that I was missing.

    after I saw my sister playing, I wanted to get started as quickly as possible. I played with girls that I went to school with. Every practice and game was so entertaining. Being able to play with my friends outside of schools and getting snacks after every game was the best part. Just being able to have fun as a kid was enjoyable as well. After a little while being on Belle-Clair, my sister switched teams and went to a select team called BFC (Belleville Football Club). I told my mom I wanted to…

    covered my whole body as I observed professors in their robes for the first time at Centenary College of Louisiana. I am not the likeliest person to pursue a career in academia and research; I am a transman who grew up in Southern Louisiana, who was kicked out of his home, forced to live on the streets, and was told that he could never be an out trans person and thrive in academia. With the help of the Point Foundation, I was able to afford my Bachelor’s, but the inherent politicization of my body resulted…

    Monday 04/17/2017 my friend Rachel asked me for a favor on behalf of her professor Dr. Dena Kniess for a multicultural course for graduate students.

At first, between me and myself I was a bit afraid and nervous. I was going to say “sorry Rachel, I can’t make it”. But then, I’m like “no I’ll make it, it’s definitely…
