Do you have a favorite place in Tacoma?
It's a three way tie! Titlow Beach Park, Chambers Bay Park, and Point Defiance. These are all places located along the Puget Sound and have breathtaking views. My partner and I have a very adorable dog that loves to fetch and play in the water. In the summer, sun sets at Titlow Beach and Chambers Bay are an absolute must see!

Name a class at Puget Sound you are interested in, but haven't taken.
375 Queer-Latinx: Art, Sex, and Belonging in America. The idea of delving into the intersectionality of the Queer-Latinx movement is inspiring and a story that must be told.

What is a book that has been influential for you?
Tuesday's with Morrie by Mitch Albom. I read this book outside of an academic setting and was grateful for the reflective nature of the memoir. I've always found myself gravitating towards memoirs as I really value listening to personal narratives. One of my favorite quotes from the book reads, "Accept who you are and revel in it".
