Who is Kalen and What’s Her Conte?

My name is Kalen, I’m striving to:

to better understand my cultural identity, while always becoming increasingly multi-cultural/ more aware /respectful/ accepting of the cultures of others.

I  am college student, majoring in Strategic Communications with a minor in Spanish.

My Conte involves me compiling what I learn in class (and in life) to become more culturally competent.

As co-inhabitants of this world/ country/ classroom/ moment in time in space, cultural competency is essential to personal development, relationship fulfillment and societal progress.

I will graduate with a B.A. in Strategic Communications next May, and I plan to pursue a Masters in Cultural Communications Studies and a career in market analysis.
