This group has made me feel very comfortable expressing my Latinidad. I am involved in the Latinx community during the year as well, but in the summer I feel that it is hard to really feel that sense of community as a Latino on campus because most of the people I know are away from campus. Being close to home, Southwest Detroit, definitely helps but I think my overall experience being on campus is more positive because of all of the Latinx students that I have become closer to. Being able to work towards a common goal together has brought us closer together and I can’t wait to see how the programs turnout. It is great to be able to work with such an amazing, hardworking, dedicated group of Latinx people because that is something that not many people are able to experience sadly. I don’t feel tokenized as the sole Latinx voice in the room like I usually do, and I don’t feel like I need to hide my Latinx identity like I tend to do in other group projects.
