Cristina Raquel-Rivera ShaheenLASER Hub Coordinator
PhD Student/Department of English
As a Latina who grew up far away from most of her family and struggled through the first years of college, I feel inspired to help adolescents see the greatness that they have inside them. I believe that the youth should be our top priority as they are our hope for the future and therefore should be treated with great care and attention. My passion and areas of study are children's literature and childhood studies, through which I love working with animation and popular culture.
