Identity Politics '16

<p class="font_8">Citlalli studied&nbsp;philosophy and Arabic at&nbsp;Georgetown University. Her upbringing in East Los Angeles and exchange year in Cairo&nbsp;fueled her to fight for justice through an anti-imperial lense as she found parallels between the experiences of&nbsp;people of color in the U.S. and those in historically colonized countries. An aspiring academic, her research involves&nbsp;modern philosophy and post-colonial critique, and&nbsp;she looks forward to challenging&nbsp;imperial hegemonies&nbsp;within and without the academy</p>
