This project started as a requirement of my Critical Social Justice Perspectives course but turned into an exciting opportunity to hear my role models share their own stories about identity, diversity, inclusion, and family. I greatly appreciate their candor and feel grateful for this experience to learn more about those I admire at Oakland University.
Thank you Berkley, Deirdre, Grace, Krista, and Tricia for your time, photos, and stories.
