Abstract Detail

Enhancing Scientist Diversity in Plant Biology Luncheon - Juan Zalapa

Zalapa, Juan [1].

A Mexican-American in Higher Education.

As a teenager in south Texas, I had limited exposure to anything other than the Mexican-American experience. However, the rise of the internet provided a window to explore the world. I dreamed of leaving Texas to study at the best school in the country. I will speak about my experience going through the higher education pipeline from undergraduate to the Ph.D. and then into the professoriate. I will the discuss challenges and opportunities many minority students face while following their dreams.
