As a woman of color, immigrant, child of immigrants and multilingual social worker, I tend to see the world through a unique lens.

Wellness & Connection in the Time of COVID
These are unprecedented and uncertain times for college students. Just about everything is different and uncertain right now. Academic life has changed…social life has changed…and even strategies for wellness have had to adjust to the COVID ‘normal’.
