In what ways has this study enabled you “to come to voice” about your own identity as shaped by dominant cultural notions of gender, race, class, and sexuality particularly related to issues of sexism, patriarchy, white supremacy, classism, heteronormativity, and homophobia?

I’ve been able to explore my own oppression, the fragmentation that has happened because of my clinical depression.  While I have dealt with it in other situations, I have not as fully disclosed the nature of my depression as I have this semester.  I even went so far as to share some of my most personal writing regarding my depression with my high school students as they worked on their own writing to find their own authentic voices.
