Hey friends! My name is Leidy Denise Aviles. Call me Leidy, Denise, or DNice!!
I graduated Lesley last year with a major in English // minor in education + women studies. I began as a student in The Girlhood Project my sophomore year. This year I hope to continue my personal research regarding the Latina/x Girlhood as the field is (unfortunately) understudied. Girlhood centralizes on the unique experience we all bring to the table and consistent engagement with feminist pedagogy keeps me coming back each year. This course challenged me to tap into myself and it is still the most exhilarating yet liberating process.
I look forward to witnessing us ALL grow and nurture one another this year during TGP 2.0- after all, that's what Girlhood is about.
