Through the use of collaborative ethnography and photography, this poster provides insight into Dr. Adrianna Ponce’s identity as an immigrant American. Incorporating photographs into the research process helped to facilitate interviewing, and allowed Dr. Ponce to assist in determining the most significant elements of her life. This poster visually examines the role that education has played in her decision to come to, and remain in, the United States. It additionally examines the difficulty she has experienced in integrating herself into a community within this country, and the role she plays in teaching her son about his multi-cultural heritage.
