“My experience in the Gender and Women’s Studies program (now titled Gender and Sexuality Studies) at Fort Lewis College was very personal. Because of certain feelings I had—namely misunderstandings about my own (gender) identity—it was important for me to study gender and sexuality across time and space in order to realize that I was not, that I am not, alone. Specifically through studying trans identities, such as the Hijras of India or the Two-Spirit people of several Native cultures, I began to realize and accept who I am. In so doing, I gained not only self-awareness and acceptance, but an incredible strength and resilience. I can honestly and proudly say that, in large part because of my GWS degree, I am the change I wish to see in the world.”
