Share the Wealth with Gabriela Keator: Recalculating
by Mark Chmiel
If the past year has taught me anything, it is the fact that it is incredibly important to run towards things that are life-giving, even if those things look very different than previously expected. I will share how my experiences in studying Bologna, working with migrants in Rome, and participating in the Mev Puleo Program in San José, Costa Rica this past year made clear to me how much I am called to remain in the United States. My experiences this past semester at Mass at the Border between El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez and my participation at the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice in Washington D.C. have only strengthened this fact, leading to a re-evaluation of what it looks like to be a woman for and with others in the context of migration in the United States.
I am a current junior at Saint Louis University majoring in Sociology with a concentration in Immigration and minors in Spanish and Entrepreneurship. I met Mark through my involvement with the Mev Puleo program at Saint Louis University.
