PHEW! What a year! I think 2020 was the year of being in my body. I don’t think I have ever been stretched, forced into feelings of vulnerability and attuned to the intersectional ways my body lives in the world more than I was this past year. It’s been a roller-coaster ride. I am happy to find myself back in this space with you all as we ring in the new year and new semester. Welcome Back and Happy New Year! I hope that this year is Just & Kind to everybody and every body.

My minority identities afford me a superpower of always finding and feeling the gaps in systems in which I live. I often feel pulled to create space for myself and others who don’t always feel included.
