Summit Snapshots: 20 Years of Intersectionality at DU

A Collection of "I Am From" Poems

"I am from..." poems are a creative way to reflect on the many intersecting identities we all hold in the DU community. These poems allow us to contemplate the many experiences that shape the way we move about the world by guiding us through a sensory journey of some of our most memorable and influential moments in life. This project features representation from students, faculty, staff, and alumni, giving a broad picture of what it means to be part of the DU community. We invite you to read the I Am poems of our community and learn more about the authors.
