Esther Lucero Graduate
Mills College helped me become the leader I am now.

It was important for me to be in small classes where I would have my professors' attention. Mills professors were mentors who helped me define who I am as an American Indian Latina woman. I found my voice within my identity and am now increasing the visibility of urban American Indians.
