It’s a little known fact that most of the TFAL crew have advanced degrees. Elaine, Gerlie, Joe, and Producer Mike (sorry Ryan!) invested portions of our lives in graduate school. For us, and for countless graduates of color, the journey through the academic path was full of hardship, difficulty, and restlessness. The bar is set much higher and the obstacles are more numerous for folks whom society has traditionally deemed not suited for university life.
Yet, what kept us going in graduate school were the little things – words of encouragement, advice from mentors, small victories along the way. Now, there’s another way to encourage graduate students to cross that finish line. For those who are continuing their education in graduate school, there is a special line of jewelry just for them.
Dr. Angela Chen presents Doctora Designs, a company that celebrates the academic achievements of ALL of us. Dr. Chen, a former undocumented student herself, started Doctora to inspire and empower those who identify as women, people of color, immigrants, and folks handling life on various intersectional margins. Her mission is to recognize our struggles and celebrate milestones of those historically marginalized in academia and society as a whole.
Whether you are a student or you know of someone in school, Doctora is the jewelry line everyone in education should get. These tokens of support, encouragement, and achievement go a long way in one’s academic career.
Graduation season, as well as Mother’s Day, is fast approaching. Honor the scholars among your family and friends with jewelry that celebrates their achievements. Make a statement, inspire yourself and others with jewelry from Doctora Designs! Isulong!
