  • Former Lehman College student-clinician, Beata Royzman, sat down for an interview with Parkinson's Life, the European Parkinson's Disease Association's online newsletter. She talked with them about her work in Lehman's Speech Clinic.

    "What do you hope the clinic will achieve and bring to the Parkinson’s community?

    I really hope we can grow our outreach and have as many people as possible come into our clinic to receive support. It’s an incredible opportunity for individuals with Parkinson’s to receive services that are of no cost to help them regain and maintain their vocal abilities – and to have a support group that they can go to and rely on each other. The Parkinson Voice Project has had very successful outcomes and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who’s having speech difficulties and living with Parkinson’s."

  • It was a full house at the third annual Summit on Latin@s in New York City (SOL NYC). Hosted by CUNY's Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute, City College's Dominican Studies Institute, and Hunter College's Center for Puerto Rican Studies, the event brought together prominent Latino politicians, scholars, and allies to examine the challenges and opportunities facing the City’s Latinos and identify solutions.

    Some of the issues identified during the day-long conference included lack of economic development in Latino communities, access to quality education, and immigration reform. Proposed solutions focused on encouraging small business ownership by Latinos, eliminating the threat of wage theft, and creating affordable housing.

    The conference continues until 6:30 pm tonight.

  • Meet the Graduates: Penelope Andujar has nothing but fond memories of Lehman College. As a child she attended Lehman’s Child Care Center, while her mother went to class and her father worked. Her mother, who once hosted her own cable access show on Time Warner, fostered Andujar’s creative streak, and supported her decision to study media communication studies. Last Thursday, Andujar was among the graduates who marched down college walk—same as her mother did 14 years earlier. Her mother was there to cheer her on. “This is only the beginning,” said Virelsa Andujar. “I know that Penelope has the intelligence to obtain everything she desires in life. I believe and will always believe in her.” Andujar plans to apply to graduate school to pursue her master’s in public relations and communications.

  • Meet the Graduates: Math and theatre, on the surface, don’t seem very compatible. But that didn’t stop Leslie Huynh from declaring a double major in the two subjects. In truth, while Huynh had always enjoyed math, she was never really sure what career she would pursue with the degree. During her junior year, she accepted an internship in a financial firm, but quickly realized that it was not for her. For Huynh, it felt like a crisis. When she took the time to reflect on the things she enjoyed most, the answer was obvious: theatre.

    “It’s not the spectacle of theatre that I enjoy the most,” explained Huynh. “It’s the sense of family that forms with cast members and the production crew. It’s about how close you can get by doing theatre.”

    Last summer, Huynh interned with the Adirondack Theatre Festival, working in the carpentry department, where she put her math skills to good use. Last year, she helped build the set for Lehman’s production of Hamlet.

    With graduation now behind her, Huynh will spend her summer doing carpentry for a regional theatre company. She wants to gain experience in the field, before applying to graduate school for technical theatre.

  • Meet the Graduates: Edruce Edouarzin has permanently put his Plan B on the shelf and is now in full pursuit of his Plan A—to become a researcher and professor of chemistry. He will get his chance now that he has been accepted to Kansas State University’s Ph.D. program in organic chemistry. Last summer, Edouarzin won a Research Experiences for Undergraduates grant to participate in a 10-week research program at Kansas State’s Department of Chemistry. He is specifically interested in researching new drug leads using natural products.

    “Up until last summer, my plan had been to earn my bachelor’s degree in chemistry and then to find work in the automotive industry,” explained Edouarzin. “But being at Kansas State, working in the labs, doing the research, and being mentored, made me realize that I could do it. I could get my Ph.D. in. chemistry.”

    The son of Haitian immigrants, Edouarzin grew up in Harlem. He is the first in his family to earn his college degree. “I have made it further than I thought I would,” said Edouarzin. “I grew up in financial scarcity, watching my parents struggle. I want to make my parents proud and I don’t want their sacrifice to be in vein.”

    Edouarzin earned his B.S. in chemistry from Lehman last week.

  • Meet the Graduates: Robert Torigoe moved from his native Hawaii to New York to pursue a career as a stage actor. But after almost 20 years of performing in regional theatre and going on daily auditions, Torigoe decided it was time to try something new. He enrolled at Lehman through the Adult Degree Program and majored in—what else—theatre. Setting aside his worries about being an older student, he embraced the challenge, and in doing so learned to see his craft in a new light. He also realized that he was a much better student as an adult then when he was 18.

    As part of his major, Torigoe participated in a few internships that introduced him to art administration. To his surprise, he found that he enjoyed working behind the scenes in support of the theatre community. “I enjoy that I still get to be part of this creative energy, but in a new way,” he said.

    Torigoe says he is interested in creating his own theatre company and teaching theatre at the college-level. “The classes and the connections that I’ve made at Lehman have really inspired me, and I think that with my experience it’s something I will be able to do,” said Torigoe.

  • Lehman President José Luis Cruz and Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr. make the case for public higher education as the key to prosperity in the Bronx in new op-ed in The Riverdale Press. https://bit.ly/2IdoEJC

    "Lehman estimated what a better Bronx would look like. If every one of the 462,000 Bronx adults who have a high school diploma or equivalency — but no bachelor’s degree — earned one, the benefits would be significant.

    These individuals would generate an additional $6 billion in annual income, and our city, state and country would gain $2.8 billion in tax revenue.

    More than 57,000 residents would be lifted out of poverty, and 43,000 would qualify for employer-provided health insurance. In addition, there’s more: Nearly 66,000 fewer individuals would require Medicaid, more than 41,000 fewer would require the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and 12,000 fewer Bronxites would require housing assistance."

  • Edith Carrasco was an avid reader through high school and began her college career interested in political science as well as public health and nutrition. With the aid of her parents, who moved to the United States from Mexico, and Professor Alyshia Gálvez of Lehman College’s Department of Latin American and Latino Studies, Carrasco found her calling.

    “Professor Gálvez’s work,” she said, “inspired my research into Mexican and transnational Mexican communities, and I left political science behind to pursue Latin American studies.” Carrasco ultimately created her own thesis topic by combining migration and physical and emotional health.

    Carrasco will earn her degree from Lehman in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, with a minor in Mexican and Mexican-American studies. After graduation she will head for Mexico, where she will spend the year teaching as a Fulbright scholar with La Comisión México-Estados Unidos para el Intercambio Educativo y Cultural.

    Carrasco was also accepted to Teach for America and plans to begin her position with that organization in 2020. Her career goal is to work as a U.S. diplomat in other countries, helping underserved communities.

  • Meet the Graduates: Konrad Wysocki knew his life’s calling from an early age. “My teacher in third grade, Ms. McDermott, asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I said, ‘a scientist,’” he says. Wysocki, who comes from a Polish immigrant family and grew up on Long Island, graduated from Queens College in 2016 and will earn his master’s degree in biology from Lehman College this week.

    Wysocki is also one of several students at Lehman to win a Fulbright grant. He will travel to Poland—which is where his parents emigrated from—to study hops. “I will be looking for wild hops that will be potentially, and naturally, resistant to drought, pests and disease,” he said. Wysocki speaks, writes and thinks in Polish. “I’m eager to go back to where my family came from,” he said.

    Looking to the future, Wysocki is interested in exploring how plant medicine and hydroponic agriculture contribute to sustainable agriculture around the world. He plans to complete a Ph.D. and continue teaching. “Being able to pass on what I know to a new generation of students – that’s one of the important roles in the sciences,” he says.

  • Meet the Graduates: After earning her bachelor's degree in anthropology and Latin American and Latino studies, Stefanie Nolli Gaspar will be off to Mexico on a Fulbright scholarship. She will spend the next year working as an English teaching assistant, helping to develop a collaborative project between the school and the community. “The purpose of this project is to inform students of the strengths their community has to offer, while supplementing the students’ access to knowledge and resources,” said Gaspar.

    As the daughter of Peruvian parents, Gaspar learned the value of education, hard work and community support from a young age. “One moment that changed my life was in fifth grade when I met my first mentor,” Gaspar said. “Having people to push you and inspire you is something I will always be grateful for.”

    It's a value that she has passed onto others by serving as a mentor to students through the Hispanic Federation’s CREAR Futuros. Gaspar was also a member of CUNY Service Corps and an assistant program coordinator for Huitzilin Experiencias En Comunidad. In 2016, she was recognized for her outstanding service in the Ernesto Malave Leadership Academy and was awarded a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    When she returns from her Fulbright year, Gaspar plans to complete two years as a bilingual teacher with Teach for America in Connecticut.
