90: Navigating Burnout During Your Journey to a PhD: An Immigrant’s Perspective with Dr. Gina Vanegas
In this episode, we have a special guest, Dr. Gina Vanegas, who speaks to us about her experience navigating burnout as an immigrant student. She discusses the added labor that immigrant students face when getting an education, the strengths that we first-gen students bring with us to new settings, how to identify signs of burnout, and what to do so that it doesn’t lead to trauma.
Dr. Gina Vanegas, M.Ed., Ph.D., is a Latinx Bilingual Psychology Postdoctoral Fellow, Qualitative Researcher and experienced speaker. She immigrated from Colombia at 16 years old and became the first person in her family to receive a Ph.D. She is passionate about contributing to the self-empowerment of underrepresented communities by sharing her training in the area of social justice and psychology, and by engaging in advocacy efforts to deconstruct systemic barriers.
