Starting the conversation: Racial Minority Insights
In this episode, we talked to a few of our friends to give us their insights, tips, or memorable experiences about higher education and collected a few main ideas to share! Odalis, along with insights from these students, describes what its like being a graduate student coming from a family-oriented culture, feeling like you don't belong, encourages you to share your perspective, and emphasis the importance of social support. This episode is our way of introducing the topic of being a racial minority in higher education but this conversation will continue to happen throughout our content!
We would like to give a special thanks to our friends that shared a little bit about their experience with us!

Xaria, an African-American woman pursing a M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of North Texas.
