GWS Student Spotlight: Victoria Rose Vicente

Name: Victoria Rose Vicente

Year in school: Senior

Majors and minors: Nursing, GWS (minor)

Hometown: Upper Darby, PA

Favorite place you’ve ever traveled to: Ghana, Africa

Favorite GWS class: Race, Class, and Gender with Professor Carol Anthony. This class was a wonderful combination of such important issues. It provided me with a didactic understanding of the intersectionality of these topics.

Why do you study GWS/why is it important to you? : GWS plays such a huge role in my practice as a nurse. Understanding that patients are people that experience life through a multitude of different lenses makes me a more compassionate nurse. GWS has opened up my mind and heart to the possibility that differences make us great. We are all unique, but share the common bond of humanity.
