When I started at Iowa State a year and a half ago, everything seemed so new, and filled with possibilities. I was enthusiastic about making new friends, connections, and pursuing the interests that I once thought would become my passions. Iowa State was my new beginning, the place where I could finally be who I am and live out my identities to the fullest. Although my intentions were to be as successful as I could during my first semester, I was not able to navigate college as seamlessly as I thought I could.

Photo of MirellaI came to Iowa State from Texas knowing no one. The one thing I thought about most often about coming to Iowa State was not the usual “how was I going to make friends?” or “where Maple Hall is?” Instead, I thought about my name. My name is Mirella, pronounced Me-rhe-YA. My entire school career my name has been a struggle for other people to learn and pronounce.
