All will be touched and inspired by these testimonios
that demonstrate strength, resiliency, and how everything from hard work to affirmative action, mentors, and cultural wealth allowed these individuals to move forward on their academic and professional journeys.
—Dolores Delgado Bernal, co-author of Transforming Educational Pathways for Chicana/o Students
These narratives highlight the knowledge, skills, and critical social and political contributions that are further developed by and the result of access to higher education. As education disparities persist, it is critical that these testimonios
be shared to provide models of paths toward success.
