For Marlen Vasquez, attending college was a transformative experience through which she learned to question extant social structures and reconnect with her Latina heritage. In this essay, Vasquez recounts two undergraduate experiences that transformed her worldview, renewed her sense of cultural pride, and allowed her to move beyond previous schooling experiences characterized by shame and a yearning to "fit in."
