Katlin Sweeney

Co-Executive Director of LASER

PhD Program / English

My identity and experiences as a second-generation Salvadoran-American and as a biracial woman have taught me to embrace and celebrate the rich diversity of Latinidad that exists in our communities. I am excited to bring my training as a writing instructor, student journalist, and LGBTQA+ resource center coordinator to LASER to help make space for young folks to claim their own agency. Before coming to Ohio State, my activism was based in San Diego and San Marcos, California, so I am excited to learn from, contribute to, and share space with mi gente in the Midwest through the LASER program.
