abstract
The objective of this study is to focus on the experiences of Latino/as’ from rural areas in Wyoming who are in college and their perception of their self identification as a Latino/a. A narrative inquiry approach and informal interviews will be conducted to gain a clearer understanding of these students’ experience of living in a predominantly white rural area. A second focus will be on my own experience as a Latina growing up in a predominantly white rural area with little Latino/a cultural influence and my transition to college where there was more influence from this culture. Additionally, attention will be given to the development of re-evaluating my own self identification due to the shift in cultural influences. The importance of this study is to raise awareness of challenges faced by students when they transition from their rural, white environment into a college community with more Latino/a cultural influence.
