Independent Student of the Day

I am a Senior at Kalamazoo College, double majoring in Human Development & Social Relations and Spanish. I spent my Junior year abroad in Oaxaca, México, where I studied grassroots revolutionary movements and immigration policy. I have been active on campus through POWER (Kalamazoo College’s feminist student organization) and Spanish Medical Interpreting through The Center for Civic Engagement. I have also been a member (and this year, a facilitator) of Women, Food, and Bodies, which is a peer-to-peer confidential space for K College women to discuss food and body image struggles. I have also sought out opportunities off campus, including working at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo as a Youth Development Professional. I am also the Intern Coordinator for Adios Barbie, an organization and website that promotes body-positivity through feminism and intersectionality. I recently researched and wrote my Senior Thesis using a feminist analysis to explore pro-disordered eating websites and the role of online communities in adolescent identity construction.
