94: How to Be an Ally Among Populations You Don’t Identify With With Emeline Beltran

In this podcast episode on how to be an ally we have a returning guest, Emeline Beltran, who shares her experience working for Cal State LA’s Dreamer’s Resource Center. She discusses what she’s learned as an ally and resource for undocumented students as well as the cultural humility and lessons she’s gaining in the process. Emeline Beltran is a second-year graduate student at Cal State LA. She is studying Communication Studies with an emphasis in Intercultural Communication. Emeline was previously on the Grad School Femtoring podcast in Episode 70, where she talked about “Being a Grad Student with a Disability.” Today, Emeline has returned to share about her role as the Programming Assistant at Cal State LA’s Dreamers Resource Center. She is a US-born daughter of Filipino immigrants, and her Filipina-American identity inspired her to work with diverse communities and specialize her master’s degree in Intercultural Communications.
