Joaquín Zihuatanejo will challenge you to look beyond the perceptions of others, and instead, tap into personal strengths that will make you a better scholar, and human being.  He'll also share practical applications you can use to explore your own sense of self, through creative expression. Come prepared to write, share, think, and feel.


Zihuatanejo is a ​​​​ poet, spoken word artist, and award-winning teacher, who found his voice writing about a youth that existed somewhere between the streets of the barrioand the dream wanderings of a boy who found refuge in a world of stories and poems.  Today, he energizes students and adults to discover their voice and share their story.

As the semester draws to a close, you're about to embark on another chapter of life.  Part of moving forward is taking stock of the past.  Dr. Aska will help you understand the decisions that brought you here, through questions like...

  • How did I live my life day-to-day?
  • Whom did I choose to surround myself with?
  • Where was my focus—or did I lack focus?

...and use those reflections to make positive decisions for the future.


Dr. Aska serves as Deputy VP of Student Services at ASU, where she also teaches courses in leadership for higher education.
