Welcome to another episode of LIFE WORK BALANCES!
Today I had the chance to interview Lizzy Gomez, who is a graduate student at the University of Vermont in the Higher Education and Student Affairs program. Lizzy and I worked together at UC San Diego, and it was really great to catch up with her, hear about how grad school has been going, and to hear about how she is growing and learning about herself through the process. We talked about growing up, the tension of wanting to leave and feeling connected to a place where we grew up, identity, helping, empowering, and loving students. We also talked about reading, classes, creativity, crafting, alone time, energy, music, and navigating more tension.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Welcome to another morning with LIFE WORK BALANCES.
Today I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Raja Bhattar, Director of the LGBT Campus Resource Center at UC Los Angeles. Raja and I had been wanting to do this for awhile, and it was really great to have the chance to chat, catch up, and learn more about how Raja got to where he is, as well as all of the great things he is doing to maintain his awesome energy. We talked about his experiences moving as a child, and the specific things that inform why he calls a place home, finding a community in different places and how those connections happen, and being your whole self. We also talked about art, dancing, working out, the privilege of choosing public transportation, and how having a good group of co-workers to just get what you are going through can be a really wonderful way to decompress.
