Anabel Encarnación ’17
Title: “The Afro-Hyphen: Understanding Black Identities”
Anabel Encarnación, or A. for short, is a senior student studying psychology at St. Lawrence University. Anabel is a proud Dominicana who currently lives between her home land, Dominican Republic, and the Bronx. She finds herself intrigued by the field of psychology and its almost infinite application to any part of the human experience. Specifically, Anabel is interested in topics of race and ethnic relations and its effect on basic human psychological processes. Based on such interest, she has decided to base her SYE on the psychological implications of denying blackness. Her cultural and ethnic background have heavily molded Anabel's persona.
