Meet Justine, recently graduated SJSU undergrad, current grad student, and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“As the daughter of an immigrant woman, the youngest of six children, and the first to attend college, I feel immense gratitude to receive the privilege that is education. Although the road to get here has been far from easy, what I’ve found is that persistence and hard work always wins. By adopting a growth mindset, I began to grow academically, professionally, and personally in ways I never imagined. So no matter where you are in your journey, know that determination will get you far.”
Meet Luis, SJSU faculty member and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“I lived in six Latin American countries before moving to the US at 16. I may not have a hometown, but I have a good understanding of how varied history, politics, and economics shape cultural practices (and vice versa), including how people are labeled and how those labels affect educational opportunity. I am proud to work with teachers learning how to affirm students’ cultures and help them be agents in their own schooling so that all students, regardless of their labels, can thrive and learn.”
