Elizabeth Barahona 
is a History and LSGS Certificate Major, from Orlando, Florida, and President of Mi Gente​, the Duke Latinx student organization. “I want to be an educator and eventually work as a policymaker in the field of education, working with the most marginalized and underrepresented students, which right now are the undocumented.
The repertoire of texts, theories, and knowledge LSGS offers is foundational for that work. I would say that it’s one of Duke’s gems because of the mentorship, the nurturing and inspiration it provides. LSGS is crucial to the goals of the University. It builds leaders, change makers, and develops thinkers.”
