It is my hope to not only share my experiences about #NASPA15 via written prose, but also through visual media. I enjoy creating videos that help express my thoughts and beliefs, particularly through a medium that can be equally engaging and creative. Thus, this short 3.5 minute video offers a brief introduction to who I am as a graduate student and professional, provides some reflective pieces about my time at the 2015 National NASPA Conference, and expresses my gratitude towards the NASPA Shares Initiative that helped fund my trip to New Orleans.
Also, shoutout to the music used for my video: Janelle Monáe – Dance Apocalyptic. I believe it is important to represent artistic, influential, and talented individuals of color within my life’s work. It is my hope to lend my gratitude and highlight an amazingly gifted woman of color like Janelle. Dance!
