LinkedIn Profile

Minerva Zayas

Minerva Zayas is a senior at Eastern Washington University and a Woman and Gender studies and Psychology major with a minor in Spanish. As a McNair Scholar, I am working towards my academic endeavors of obtaining a PhD in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis on feminist studies. My research focus is surrounding how queer Chicana women have had to negotiate their psychological identity and professional identity within higher education. My research focus has derived from the need to reach out to low income Hispanic families, and marginalized groups in order to provide affordable counseling services. My scholarship endeavors will allow me to continue to narrow my research focus, within an epistemological perspective, in order to create social justice change.
