Please join us in congratulating American Studies major Marithza Quiroz, winner of the Judith Lee Stronach Baccalaureate Prize for 2020.

For her project, Power & Joy: Untold Stories of Undocumented Women, Marithza will create an illustrated book that features what she describes as the “untold stories of agency and creativity” of undocumented women in the U.S. Writing the book she wishes she had read when she arrived in the U.S. at seventeen-years-old, Marithza hopes it will serve not only as a directory of information but also as a meaningful revision of the narratives about undocumented women.
