Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month
In this podcast, we speak about our identity and why it is important for us to be adamant about the identities we use. As this month is about celebrating Latinx culture and heritage, we also touch on representation, why it matters, and what we would like to see on campus for better representation. Additionally, we speak about influential people that have inspired us, which you can read about in our collaborative article for this months theme.
As UIUC students, we wanted to share with you and talk about what we feel it means to be Latinx students on campus. The overall college experience is something to be proud of and differs between person-to-person. What you should take from what we have written is that every experience matters and helps shape who you are. Being Latinx in a PWI- as intimidating as it may be- is an achievement in itself. We have compiled several experiences, resources and general opinions about our time being at UIUC which we hope gives you an unfiltered understanding of being a college student in general. Know that you are not alone!
