Abstract:(Pictured: My grandmother's signature stamp) My research is dedicated to my first students, my grandmothers, whose resilience to try to learn to read and write at age eighty has been a continuous source of inspiration for me as a student with multiple minority identities (disability, sexual orientation, homelessness, etc.) and my research on the factors that lead to building academic resilience for students with multiple minority identities who achieved outstanding academic success in spite of extreme trauma and challenges. My goal is to turn this research into a book, a courageous look beneath the veil of outstanding academic achievements among students with multiple minority identities. The book will focus on intersecting identities development and negotiation, unlearning limiting beliefs, and the development of resilience for reclamation of one's potential. My research will be dedicated to my grandmothers who never had the opportunity to step a foot in a school but made sure all their children and 40 grandchildren are all literate and educated. I carry my grandmother's stamp with me everyday and it is a constant humility reminder of all the marvelous women who paved the way for me to be a first generation college and doctoral student.
