College is hard. Period. When we turn in papers, assignments, or take exams, and we don't get the grade we'd hoped for, it can sometimes weigh heavy on us. This talk, focusing on students and faculty/staff alike, hopes to remind those involved in university life, that self worth is self made, if we remember to "lean back".

Dr. Cecilia “CC” Suarez is a San Antonio, Texas native and is proud to come from a family of strong women. She is an educator/warrior of all things just and has dedicated her life work to carving out equitable access to higher education for all, creating spaces for people of color narratives, and creating a greater understanding that in order to change communities and practices, you have to change the composition of the “soil” first

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
