Speaking your truth is a phrase that seems to be synonymous with Diversity and Outreach Admissions Counselor Alex Navarro-Guzmán
While Navarro-Guzmán is studying for a Master's of Business Leadership and Innovation
, she is working hard to support diversity and inclusion across campus.
"The time right now is about getting comfortable no matter what space you’re in," she says. "We need to see representation because representation is important."
Over the years, Navarro-Guzmán experienced biases against her, including criticism for getting scholarships.
"Sometimes when we walk into a room, we have to have a title behind our name like, 'Alexandra Navarro-Guzmán PhD' for people to even listen,” she says. “It shouldn’t be like that.”
