|Vive La Resistencia!||PhD, self-development, grad school, BIPOCs, non-academic careers||Own Website||Yup. Being a brown girl in academia is a daily exercise of overthrowing the system. Let’s dive in.|
Welcome to my blog: Vive La Resistencia (translation: The Resistance Lives!). My name is Lorena or Dr. Aceves-Koscinski (still getting used to the whole doctor thing). I am a first-generation Latina (Mexican) scholar. I have decided now that I am officially Dr. Aceves-Koscinski to openly and unapologetically share the good, the bad, the horrors, and the awesomeness that I experienced while completing my Ph.D. With this blog, I hope to reclaim my own power, but also empower other fellow BIPOC students pursuing their PhDs by sharing my personal narrative. Through my stories, I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I want you to know that you are not the only one feeling the way you are feeling or believing that the crazy things you are experiencing in grad school are only happening to you. As students of colors, we must share our narratives to empower each other and join forces to improve the system for those to come in the future.
