Abstract

Juan is a sophomore at Skidmore and spoke a great deal about his pride as a Dominican which he truly connected to when he came to Skidmore more and was exposed to the othernessd posed by the majority white school and town. He spoke of his family in Brooklyn and their expectations for him as a first generation college student. His binationalism came up as well, Juan pointing out that although born in the US, he does not fully feel welcome within the country and upon visits to The Dominican Republic found that he was again looked down on as a yankee. To deal with his fear he found solidarity with Skidmore's Raices and spoke of wanting to give a voice to latinx on campus and in the future in government.
