Graduate Learning Consultant
Leslie Patricia Luqueño (she/her) is a first-year doctoral student at the Graduate School of Education, specializing in the Sociology of Education. Leslie received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Haverford College, where she majored in Anthropology and Educational Studies. Her doctoral research lies at the intersection of immigration, higher education, and family studies, with a focus on the experiences of second-generation Latinx immigrants at elite colleges. Particularly, she is interested in how the children of immigrants develop unique pockets of familial and experiential knowledge that help them survive and thrive within higher education. Though she specializes in sociological method, her liberal arts background has familiarized her with various disciplines including legal studies, anthropology, health studies, ethnic studies, and more. Leslie decided to be a Peer Learning Consultant because she is driven to apply what she learns in the classroom to the real world and support fellow Stanford students. Furthermore, as a first-generation, Latina student, Leslie hopes to serve as a resource for students from similar backgrounds. In her free time, the Los Angeles native enjoys cheering on the Dodgers, watching NFL and college football games, finding hidden gem food spots, and trying out the latest makeup trend.
