Let’s Talk About It: What’s in a Name?
All K-State students are invited to this Wildcat Dialogues event.
Join Jaime Mendez III, K-State alumnus and former football player, as he shares his story and journey in reclaiming his identity through his name. He will share important perspectives about growing up as an American Latino who navigates living between cultures and the pressure to fit in versus owning your story. Participants will engage in dialogue around the power of language, differences between fitting in and belonging, and owning your identity.
Offered in-person and via Zoom. After registrations are confirmed, students will receive the zoom link for the virtual or the face to face, depending on preference. In-person sessions will take place in room 204-205 at the Morris Family Multicultural Student Center.
All participants will receive a Wildcat Dialogues face mask. Registration due noon Monday, April 19
Tuesday, April 20 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm
