people i look up to

Demita Frazier is an “unrepentant life long Black feminist.” Since her childhood she has been a passionate activist, thinker, writer, teacher, cook, and gardener, who is dedicated to fighting against the culture of oppression. I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting and dining with Demita as a part of the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s International [Working] Women’s Week, and was immediately struck by her generosity and her truth. Check out her website here and the work of the Combahee River Collective!

Robin Wall Kimmerer is a writer, mother, botanist, professor, and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation of Anishinaabe descent. She wrote Gathering Moss and Braiding Sweetgrass, alongside many papers on restoration ecology, and is interested in restoring not just the environment around us, but also our relationship to the land through reciprocity. With a BS in Botany from SUNY ESF and MS and PhD from the University of Wisconsin, she works to introduce traditional ecological knowledge to the field of science while respecting and protecting indigenous communities. Check out her webpage here. I hope I can take one of her classes, particularly Field Ethnobotany, and meet her one day!
