Stories: Building Identity through History

April 11, 2019

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join Mexican Students de Aztlán (MeSA), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and Union for Puerto Rican Students (UPRS) for the last Noche de Poetas (Poetry Night) of the Spring semester.


Don't miss out on the amazing talented poets as they share their own poetic words on this month's theme: Identity

Leading the night will be our featured poet: Monica Gonzalez

  • How can we use literature/academia to reclaim our own history/identity?
  • How can we navigate academic spaces to learn about our history?

Monica Gonzalez is an 18 year old aspiring poet. She takes inspiration from her grandmother, who encouraged her to always be herself and find freedom in that. Monica uses poetry to express herself and her identity, and uses her work to expose the myth of reality. Though she struggles with anxiety, she finds strength in sharing her experiences with others, and vows to write her heart out regardless of what trials and tribulations she may face.
