Hola! My name is Ismaris Ocasio, I love all aspects of culture spanning from food, dance, style, history, and travel. I call myself the self-discoverer who uses my passions to truly get to know myself and those around me. I am really into astrology, interior design, aesthetics, and the beach for relaxation. I aspire to take care of myself holistically so I can live a life that is fulfilling in all areas. My interests in self-exploration and liberation are also reflective of my passion for intersectional social justice issues as I aspire to work with others to create environments that are more inclusive, connected, and socially conscious. 

I attended Bridgewater State University as an undergraduate where I was extremely involved. My time consisted of being a full-time student, a Resident Assistant, a mentor to high school students, co-hosting “The Art of Hip-Hop” radio show, leading alternative break trips, attending study abroad tours, and serving as the programming chair for Bridgewater Coffeehouse Entertainment. My undergraduate experiences truly shaped who I am today and I’m incredibly grateful for the pearls I gained. I would suggest to students to get to know yourself, explore your interests, learn new things, and always remember to be gentle with yourself through rough patches. You can leave college with just a degree or you can leave college with a greater version of you and a degree.
