I was recently on the Northern Kentucky University campus to spend time with the Office of Latino Student Affairs. As a reminder, they’re hosting the first annual Educating Latinos for Kentucky’s Future (ELKF) Conference this Thursday and Friday at the NKU campus. I’ll be there sharing some tweets and blog posts during the event.
I also had the good fortune of meeting a bright and very energetic student by the name of Gabriela, and she just happens to work for the Latino student office. Like many Hispanic students in college, Gabriela is a dedicated student, actively involved on campus, and works a couple of jobs; however, this doesn’t diminish her energy or vision for the future. She was kind enough to spend some time with me to discuss her perspectives as a Latina college student in this installment of the HTM Podcast. Gabriela’s insights are very telling. She illustrates why the Hispanic college student experience is so unique and why Hispanics can bring so many experiences and skills to any organization. I hope to invite other Hispanic students as talented as Gabriela to future HTM Podcasts. Enjoy!
