Bio: 

My name is Xavier A. Torres de Janon, and I am second-year Hampshire College student from Ecuador. At Hampshire, I study transnational identities, focusing specifically on the Arab and Latin American identities. I am interested in how these identities can be instrumentalized for political needs, the problematics surrounding them, and the struggle they face. I am passionate about cross-border flows of humans, migrant rights, anti-oppression, and an active commitment to true and just diversity.
