Abstract: Living life aware of intersectionality provides the impetus to creatively engage diversity in a space where personal identities influence how people view one another. Successfully navigating the nuances within this kind of complex environment requires the development of relationships across many identities and through the appreciation everyone's experiences. Through my personal/professional history, I have integrated hip hop, ministry and forestry in my pedagogy. Now at Yale University, the scholarship of adult education and the experiences from activism contribute to my practice. Using my lens like a prism, I work to see the many layers of each individual to guide my decision making in my day to day duties.
