Episode 2: Microaggressions
SUMMARY: In the second episode of Tiger Talk, Victoria Yeh (‘16) and Kendra Ing (‘16) define and discuss microaggressions. This episode will help the audience understand what microaggressions are, how they can be harmful, and how they have impacted TAS alumni through Kendra’s experiences in college and beyond. They discuss microaggressions towards women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, etc. Kendra’s perspectives as an artist and a dancer provide a unique perspective, different from the academic lens used in September’s episode.
Kendra Ing (she/her) graduated from TAS in 2016, and went on to the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at the New School in New York City. She studied Interdisciplinary Science and Contemporary Dance. Since her graduation in 2020, she has been freelancing in dance and teaching, staying true to her passions of art and education. A passionate advocate for social justice, Kendra has been active in promoting DEI work within the TAS community and in her social circles.
