Mentoring Philosophy:

As a Black feminist I advocate a co-mentorship philosophy. As a co-mentor it means that I recognize that while the student is there to learn from me, I am also there to learn from them. I see mentorship as a Black feminist praxis where students can be prepared and want to eventually become mentors themselves. I think students learn best when we model humility, patience and compassion and blend that with a strong work ethic as well as a Black feminist ethics of care. I am hopeful that any student who has opportunity to be mentored by me gains a love for the work they get to do, the history, the theory, the application. Most of all I hope that the student learns that in all relationships whether it be mentoring or otherwise we respect each other and treat each other like human beings.
