Rachel Zellars, PhD candidate and course lecturer in our Department of Integrated Studies in Education, wrote a recent article for the CBC's ongoing Real Talk on Race series, published earlier this week.

In "The need for mentorship as a woman of colour: Rachel Zellars writes a tribute to three people who have helped her survive the world as a woman of colour" (March 18, 2016), Zellars personally thanks McGillians Lena Palacios (PhD (Educational Studies/Communications Studies) 2015) and Professor Charmaine Nelson.

"I began my PhD at McGill as a gift to myself and what I believed was my best opportunity to thrive in this place —to live as a single mother of three small children, parent with the integrity I imagined, move beyond poverty and to hold a deep joy in the work I performed," writes Zellars in part.
