Last August I was honored to be a guest speaker at The New School’s new student convocation event. I spoke about my work and its relationship with immigration, encouraged students to be themselves and also comforted their parents hopefully convincing them that their adult children were going to have a blast in the next 4 years. I was also part of a discussion panel that focused on immigration and social justice with some incredible fellow professors at TNS: Civil rights activist Maya Wiley, fashion designer Nadia Williams and writer Diana Goetsch. It was a blast! You can check it out HERE - My speech starts at 32 min and the discussion at 1:29.
