  • Write Your Way Through

    The second act of Hamilton has many emotional moments. One of the most deeply affecting for me comes during Alexander Hamilton’s solo ballad “Hurricane.” While the instrumentation mimics an earlier moment of triumph for him (“Yorktown”- if you hadn’t already noticed the parallel, give it another listen. It blew me away!), this time the Founding Father finds himself at a crossroads. His solution, as with so many other key points in his life, is to “write his way out.” As he has with so many other major accomplishments in his life- leaving the West Indies for the Colonies, making the case for an independent nation, drafting the American financial system- he found his way there through writing.

  • My Own Path

    Clarissa Valencia was born and raised in northeast Los Angeles, and resides in Alhambra, CA. She discovered her love for student affairs and spirituality while majoring in the Study of Religion at UCLA. From there, she attended Cal Poly SLO, where she researched the Muslim student experience, and completed a Masters in Counseling and Guidance for Higher Education. She also interned at USC’s Office of Religious Life where she focused her efforts on implementing workshops for discovering meaning and purpose in careers. She began her professional career at Southwestern Law School followed by Mount Saint Mary’s University’s in Los Angeles. She is currently focusing on bridging the gap between the inner lives of college students who identify as “spiritual but not religious” and their outer lives at universities. Her goal is to help all Light workers, metaphysical believers, Star Seeds, crystal experts, energy healers, law of attraction creators, and unchurched spiritual followers in college strengthen their spiritual voice.
