UNM alums pioneer local tea business by Nichole Harwood @Nolidoli1

Old Barrel Tea Company is beginning its embark to sweep through the nation, introducing Americans to the business’ teas and products. The company began in 2015 and has multiple locations in New Mexico including one in Old Town, and is pursuing its first location outside of the state in Durango, Colorado. The business was founded by Bailey Huffmon, her sisterin-law Paola Huffmon, Dana Huffmon and Nedada Huffmon. “Even before we were technically business partners, everyone helped out,” Bailey said. “Whenever we were opening in Ruidoso, and we didn’t even know if we’d be successful, I remember Paola coming into the market and working behind the bar and helping us serve tea, sample tea and sample honey.” Paola, Bailey, Dana and Nedada primarily make executive decisions, Bailey said, adding that each of the women’s significant others has contributed to the business as well. This includes Paola’s

Hodgin Hall: a monument to UNM history UNM by Rebecca brusseau @r_brusseau 2018 marks the 126th anniversary of Hodgin Hall, the oldest building on the University of New Mexico’s Main Campus. Hodgin Hall has a vast history with deep ties throughout UNM and is now the home of the UNM Alumni Association. “(Hodgin Hall) keeps alive the history of the University and New Mexico,” said Alumni Association Special Events Coordinator Kathie Scott. “This building tells a story.” As the first building on campus, Hodgin Hall was the original site for college studies prior to New Mexico’s statehood. The hall was built in 1892 on the corner of Railroad Avenue — now known as Central Avenue — and University Boulevard — the building was the center for all departments affiliated with the University. The hall was located two miles east of Albuquerque’s Downtown area and could only be accessed by a horse-drawn vehicle, according to the Alumni Association. “Hodgin Hall was built 20 years before New Mexico even became a state,” Scott said. “We need to keep that history.” The building’s original construction was reminiscent of cathedral-style architecture, featuring

arched windows on the upper floor and a steep pitched roof, according to the Alumni Association. The hall called for remodel in 1906, when members of the University expressed concern for the building’s ability to wear through the elemental extremes experienced in this region, the Alumni Association website states. In 1908, Hodgin Hall was renovated to reflect a multicultural influence with pueblo-style architecture — this was the most major change faced by Hodgin Hall, but renovations were added in the mid-20th century and again in 2010. Since the renovations in 2010, an art gallery was added, featuring an original painting of George Washington painted by renowned artist Gilbert Stuart, Scott said. Another addition was the Dr. Karen Abraham courtyard, located in front of the entrance to Hodgin Hall. “(Hodgin Hall) is a fixer-upper, but we love it,” she said. “The building has taken on a beautiful character.” Scott is one of the alumni officials in charge of directing maintenance on the building. The hall has adapted many traditions throughout its lifetime, including the Brick Brigade and the lighting of the “U.” “People don’t stay on campus like they did 50 years ago, so sometimes it’s hard to make that connection,” Scott said. “Hodgin Hall is the pride of UNM, and these traditions give us a sense of pride about where we are

and where we come from.” The “U,” located just east of Hodgin Hall’s entrance, has also been remodeled. Originally located on the roof of the building and made of tin, the new “U” stands 12 feet tall, is made of cast bronze and is illuminated during special events using LED lights in a range of colors. Hodgin Hall is available as a resource for study spaces and meeting rooms and as a home for the Alumni Association. Tours are offered throughout the week, and the Alumni Association has continued to carry out a new tradition of providing coffee and donuts on the first Wednesday of every month.

Although this building has survived over generations, the Scott sees Hodgin Hall staying strong for many years to come. “This is every student’s building, and we care and respect the building and the history it relays,” she said. “For the future, I would want to build more of a relationship with the UNM student community so they can utilize the room spaces in Hodgin Hall at a reduced or complimentary fee.” Rebecca Brusseau is a news reporter at the Daily Lobo.

The Lobo community is mourning the loss of an esteemed p r o f e s s o r, author and family man. M a r i o Rivera passed away Dec. 22, Courtesy Photo/UNM Administration 2017. He was born in Havana, Cuba in 1947 and emigrated to the United States in 1958 where he received a bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and held a doctorate and master’s degree in political science and public policy from the University of Notre Dame.

husband, Cody Huffmon. “It’s interesting for sure. We always joke we must drive our vendors insane, because just four women from the same family were so loud and crazy and opinionated, but it’s definitely a lot of fun,” Bailey said. Both Paola and Cody received their bachelor’s degrees from the University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management, and Paola returned to UNM to receive her master’s degree in education. Paola and Cody said they always knew they wanted to be entrepreneurs and even opened up businesses while in college. Post-college, the pair did not immediately open up businesses, but the work they pursued found its way into the Old Barrel Tea Company. “The great thing about Anderson is that they brought in people who are local business owners,” Cody said. “When you’re sitting there in a room with someone that owns a business, and they’re telling you, ‘This is how I did it,’ (it) motivates you as an entrepreneur to really push it.” For Paola, this, along with help from professors, allowed her to be where she is today.

“Douglas Thomas, he’s awesome, he’s my favorite professor,” Paola said. “I really enjoyed his classes, because I remember he would always show us slideshows of the office and basically tell us, ‘This is what you don’t do in a business.’ He would basically make us laugh and make it a casual environment which is what we brought into our environment.” Paola advises those who are looking to pursue business not to underestimate creativity, noting there is value in coming up with something fresh and new, she said. One of Paola’s post-college work experiences was with nonprofits. Paola worked for a couple of nonprofit organizations including the American Cancer Society and Big Brothers Big Sisters, she said. The latter is what prompted her to return to UNM for her master’s degree in education and pursue teaching for three years. Paola is still very much involved in this work as a unique part of the Old Barrel Tea Company, titled CharaTea, involves donations to local charities. “So every two months we choose a different charity, a local charity,” Paola said. “At the end of (a client’s) purchase we

always ask people if they would like to donate any amount of money... and a hundred percent of proceeds go to that charity.” Old Barrel Tea Company also hosts events, such as one around Christmas which included live music and gifts brought in. 150 gifts were taken to an orphanage in Mexico, Paola said. “We don’t take the money to buy gas or anything,” Cody said. “All of that is on the shops. We hand delivered all the gifts we got. One hundred percent.” Bailey took a different path, as she originally double majored in psychology and sign language interpreting; however she said her involvement in the tea business came strongly from family. “My mom’s a cancer survivor, so growing up we always drank loose leaf tea, and my family was very big on loose leaf tea before it was really popular,” Bailey said. While Bailey originally intended on interpreting after college, the path meant for her in life along with her family’s love of tea lead to her family putting their heads together and opening up tea shops throughout the state. Despite the shift in careers away from her degree, Bailey’s

time at UNM is one she treasures, filled with great professors that were inspiring and saw the best in their students, she said. “The cool thing is whenever I started transitioning away from interpreting, I honestly was kind of worried what my professors would think,” Bailey said. “The sign language interpreting program at UNM is wonderful, and there we have the professors, and I just always thought I would grow up and be this great interpreter so I was honestly kind of nervous to tell them I was stepping away from that community although I still interpret a little bit. But they were so encouraging they actually came into the shop once we opened in Albuquerque and came to support us and see what it was like. I still keep in touch with some of my professors at UNM and keep them updated with what we’re doing, and they are just so positive. It doesn’t matter what you studied, they’re happy to see you succeed.” Bailey advises students to acknowledge that while they’re in school and think they know what their life is going to look like, when they do graduate they should wait and see what opportunities

life gives them. “It’s really easy to just get stuck in your mind,” Bailey said. “You spend four years or eight years in college trying to do one thing when really you should do what feels right.” As for the future of the company, both Paola and Cody look to branch out from New Mexico into surrounding states first. “I think of all of our cultures,” Paola said. “I’m from Mexico so of course I’m going to want to do horchata. And a lot of people have never heard of horchata. It’s a Mexican drink, and it’s made with rice, vanilla and cinnamon and the same with our spices. My sister-in-law, Nadada, is from Serbia, so we’re creating a Serbian spice, so I’m thinking of not only our local culture, but the culture we all grew up with.” Anyone interested in learning more about Old Barrel Tea Company can go to or find the company on social media.

a consultant for many programs that focused on supporting underrepresented students and young people to overcome social and educational barriers. Bruce J. Perlman, who was one of Mario’s colleagues and also a regents’ professor, worked with him for 25 years and became good friends with him. When Mario passed away, the two were working on an edited volume in honor of Feral Heady, a former UNM president who passed away a few years ago. Perlman has plans to continue their work honoring Heady, stating that he thinks one of the reasons Mario came to UNM was because of Heady. Outside of work, the two traveled to Mexico and El Salvador. He said one thing about Mario that not everyone might

know and that he prized greatly was Mario’s great sense of humor — he recalls the two always laughing about politics and the ironies of academic life and his ability to always have a ready quip or joke. Apart from his extensive work in education, both Perlman and the Rivera family remember Mario as an avid family man. He met Ana in Washington D.C., she said. They were married in Peru in 1987 and had three daughters together, Alyssa, Sara and Gabriella, all of whom studied or continue to study at UNM. Perlman said he and Mario knew each other since their daughters were little and that Mario frequently spoke to him about his children. Mario’s passion for education

did not stop at the University. His daughters said they will remember him for the lessons he taught them and his endless support of their dreams and education. “My dad was an educator in every regard,” said Gabriella, who is also a Daily Lobo news reporter. “From his work as a professor at multiple institutions, to teaching us to read long before our formal education, to the innumerable life lessons he taught us by example throughout our lives.” He shared his love for literature with his daughters, often gifting them stacks of books for Christmas, his daughters said. Even after family breakfast at different favorite cafes, the daughters would pick out a pile of books at Page One Books and would eventually narrow it down to two or three.

A fond memory for the daughters, they said, will always be the time they wrote a children’s book with him called Prince Pegasus — he even illustrated the character himself. Mario was a professor, father, husband and more. He will be remembered by family and friends as an avid reader and caring educator.

MEN’S basketball

Lobos thrash San Jose State, 80-47 By Matthew Narvaiz @matt_narvaiz The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team is on the up after Saturday’s blowout win over San Jose State, as the Lobos defeated their opponent, 80-47, at Dreamstyle Arena. Five scorers for the Lobos were in the double digits. Behind freshman guard Makuach Maluach’s 15 points, junior guard

Chris McNeal and Anthony Mathis had 12 points each, senior guard Antino Jackson had 11 and senior forward Joe Furstinger, who nearly had a double-double with nine rebounds, scored 10 points. As a team, UNM also made 13 3-pointers and shot 46.7 from the field. On the other hand, the Lobos held SJSU to 31.8 percent shooting on the night. The Lobos, though, also forced 20 turnovers, which they translated into 28 points.

“I thought we played much better defense and were able to get some stops, particularly at the start of both halves,” UNM head coach Paul Weir said in a press release. “We were a little more contained and a little more control-oriented.” SJSU scored first, though that would be its only lead, which lasted 15 seconds. From there, UNM answered back with a layup from freshman forward Vladimir Pinchuk to tie the game up. Nearly 8 minutes into the game,

the Lobos hit three 3-pointers in a row, with Maluach hitting the shot that gave his team their first double digit lead, 18-6. By the end of the first half, UNM had a 39-23 lead. In the second half, the Lobos kept up the pressure, though not necessarily a full court pressure, all while their offense kept churning. A Furstinger layup put the Lobos up by 20 points, 46-26, a little over three minutes into the second half and, from there, they only built on

their lead. The Lobos went on to win 80-47 at home. Up next for UNM is another home conference game, this time against Wyoming. The game is set for Wednesday, Jan. 10 at 7 p.m. Matthew Narvaiz is a senior sports reporter for the Daily Lobo. He primary covers men’s and women’s basketball and baseball.

Women’s basketball

UNM dealt first loss of conference play by SJSU By Matthew Narvaiz @ matt_narvaiz

Saturday afternoon’s matchup at San Jose State didn’t go as planned for the University of New Mexico women’s basketball team. In the team’s fourth conference appearance this season, the Lobos (15-2, 3-1 MW) lost their first Mountain West game to a below .500 Spartans team, who laid it on UNM in the second half to win, 95-86, at the Event Center. After the Lobos garnered a 4942 lead by halftime, the Spartans (5-10, 2-2 MW) outscored their opponent 53-37 in the second half.

But, in the first two minutes of the third quarter, SJSU came out firing. In that time, the Spartans managed to nail, not one, but two 3-pointers as well as a basket to give them a 50-49 lead. The Spartans led most of the third quarter, too, but near the end of the frame, a basket by junior post Jaisa Nunn put UNM up 67-63. However, in similar fashion to the start of the third, the Spartans finished the third on a 5-0 run, to take a 68-67 advantage at the end of the quarter. The next time the Lobos would garner a lead came on a basket from senior guard Cherise Beynon with 6:51 in the game, to put her team up 74-73. From

there, SJSU picked up its pace, grabbed the lead and didn’t squander it. From the moment the Lobos last had the lead, the Spartans outscored them 23-12 before the end of the game. “When I say we weren’t ready to play, I mean everybody,” UNM head coach Mike Bradbury said to the Albuquerque Journal. “It showed in practice (Friday) and in walk-through (Saturday). I’m embarrassed. We will go back to work Monday, and this won’t happen again.” Nunn, who had 31 points and 10 rebounds, led the way for UNM. In the game, she was 12-for-14 from the field. Senior guard Tesha Buck had 17 points, seven rebounds, four

assists and two steals. And senior guard Alex Lapeyrolerie had 13 points, with three made 3s. With her nine points and 12 assists, Beynon nearly had a double-double. She did, however, post seven turnovers. In total, UNM had 15 turnovers — Beynon nearly commited half of them. As a team, the Lobos shot 43.8 percent from the field and 30.3 percent from range compared to SJSU’s 45.9 percent shooting night and even better 48 percent from beyond the arc. With UNM’s loss to SJSU and after Fresno State defeated top Mountain West opponent, Colorado State, 56-45 on Saturday, the Lobos and the Bulldogs are tied atop the conference. Both the

UNM and Fresno State are now 3-1 in the conference. The two teams will meet next Saturday, after the Lobos play one more on the road at Wyoming on Wednesday. In Wyoming, the Lobos will face a team that defeated Boise State — who UNM beat by 17 points at home — on Saturday, 66-51. Matthew Narvaiz is a senior sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.

LEttERS LoboAlerts warnings need to be more timely

Men should be ashamed for sexual harassment epidemic Editor, This letter is in response to the articles covering the sexual harassment allegations made against men in the media and government throughout the United States. To all males living in this country,

Editor, While I understand the need for the LoboAlerts advisory text messages, something really needs to be done about the timeliness of them, or lack thereof. Golden Pride experienced an

armed robbery at 6:24 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8, and this was first communicated via a LoboAlerts email message at 8 p.m. that evening. However, this email was followed by a text message nearly seven hours later at 2:55 a.m. on

Saturday, Dec. 9 — eight and a half hours after the original event occurred. This is not the first time I have been woken up in the middle of the night to be alerted about an event happening long before. The email

alert was timely, why not the text as well? Brian Vineyard UNM Staff

I issue a collective statement: enough already! Who are you to impose your sexual desires on someone, because they did not give you their consent? Once again we are witnessing those in authority positions taking advantage of the situation. Resignation is the least you can do. Prosecution is the best we can do...and we will. What did you expect to gain from making sexual advances on a human being? If this isn’t an indication of the failure to grow up, I

don’t know what is. Those men who have permeated this transgression must seek counseling before they destroy more lives executing their perverted conquest. Otherwise time spent in prison will allow them to dwell on their evil actions while trying to survive an environment which is the closest equivalent to hell on Earth. Perhaps I had the advantage of growing up with four sisters in my family which some say predispositions males to be kinder

to females throughout all stages of their life. Frankly I remember times when I was embarrassed for making incidental contact with a female followed by an immediate apology. Ladies of America, please be assured that the actions of a few do not represent the feelings and beliefs of the many. You are our mothers, sisters, daughters, cousins, etc. that compose one equal half of the species we call the human race. For that matter, do not despair, because the true honest and gentle

men of this country know better than to act inappropriately in your company. We will always cherish your beauty, charm and most importantly your intelligence. Now help us to drive this dreadful scourge from the planet once and for all. It is up to all of us. Let us begin. Joe Bialek

Movie Review

“The Last Jedi” exciting entry to beloved franchise By Timber Mabes @timbermabes “The Last Jedi,” Episode VIII of the classic and beloved space opera “Star Wars” was one of the most hyped-up movies of 2017. The seventh installment, “The Force Awakens,” brought the films back to media frontlines when it was released in 2015. Since then, the Star Wars franchise has reclaimed its presence in the lives of lifelong adult fans and youths alike. “The Last Jedi” premiered on Dec. 14, and the movie’s anticipation reignited the worldwide Star Wars craze. Star Wars toys and action figures stocked the isles of supermarkets and toy stores, Star

Wars clothing hit popular retail stores, such as the GAP and on opening weekend the film hit a total of $220,009,584 gross in the box office, according to IMDb’s Box Office Mojo. Directed by Rian Johnson, the film starred the temperamental First Order Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), an identity-grappling Rey (Daisy Ridley ), FN-2187 (John Boyega) otherwise known as Finn and of course the return of the beloved characters Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher). “The Last Jedi” would be one of the late Carrie Fisher’s final on-screen performances, and this brought many lifelong fans to the theater. Fisher died in December of

“The Last Jedi” takes risks when it comes to the typical Star Wars recipe and introduces a few neverbefore-seen concepts relating to the “force.” For many, these new concepts may be viewed as fresh and exciting additions to the Star Wars world, but for others, the changes made to the vintage series may negatively impact many character plots and traditional Star Wars norms. As a casual Star Wars fan, I was entertained by the movie and thought it was both exciting and dramatic. The film offered a modern take on the old and wellloved world of Star Wars. I would not recommend entering the theater with absolutely no Star Wars knowledge however, as the movie contains many

With a budget of $200 million, Johnson’s film included intense spaceship battles, dramatic pointof-view race scenes, mesmerizing woceanside scenery and fierce lightsaber clashes. Along with thrill and intensity, the new movie explores the journey of discovering self-identity, letting go of the past and recognizing the wrongs one has committed. Following the paths of many of the characters introduced in “The Force Awakens,” the newest installment in the Star Wars franchise was a worldwide hit and rests as the thirdhighest-grossing film released in 2017, according to IMDb’s Box Office Mojo.

different stories and characters, which makes it a bit complicated. For someone who has never seen a Star Wars movie, I would recommend viewing “The Force Awakens” beforehand in order to learn the names and background of many of the characters. For Star Wars fans both new and old, “The Last Jedi” offers a fun movie-going experience that is sure to entertain and is most definitely worth the cost of a ticket.

Smith Plaza renovation is well underway by Madison Spratto @Madi_Spratto With the beginning of a new semester brings new courses and this time, new construction. Dec. 18, 2017 marked the start of construction on Smith Plaza on the University of New Mexico’s Main Campus. Smith Plaza sits between Zimmerman Library and the Student Union Building — the plaza experiences heavy foot traffic during the school week, which has been rerouted in light of the construction. The construction plans include adding more trees, sitting areas with tables and replacing the steep stairs from Union Square — the area north of the SUB and west of Mesa Vista Hall — to the plaza with a pathway, said Kim Kloeppel, the chief operations officer for student affairs. The “Lobo Landing” and four plateau areas will give students more space to gather, and the “spaghetti ramp” on Union square, along with ramps on Smith Plaza, will also be upgraded to improve safety and

accessibility, Kloeppel said. An addition of a donor wall will give people and businesses the opportunity to have their name engraved on a wall on one side of the plaza, she said. Student Affairs describes the new additions as an outdoor “great room” in order to reaffirm UNM as a “Destination University.” The plaza was originally constructed in 1972 with minimal repairs and no access for emergency response — access will be featured in the new design. Safety concerns about skateboarders, “alternative transportation” and pedestrians arose, which was a motivating factor for the renovation of the plaza and was greatly considered in the new design, Kloeppel said. “Since it is in the ‘heart’ of campus, the objective is to create a safe, accessible, comfortable, connected community and environment for campus users to feel engaged and connected,” she said. The design was a result of a needs assessment done by the University so they could decide what new additions should be considered while keeping in mind the concerns of safety, and

research was done to compare what other universities have in their plazas similar to Smith Plaza, Kloeppel said. MRWM Landscape Architects, McClain + Yu Architecture and Design and Surface Design, Inc. collaborated for four different design options, which were presented to students, staff and faculty for feedback, she said. “The ‘plateau design’ was chosen because it reflected the overall needs and southwest design that was the best fit for this project,” she said. This “great room” does come at a cost. The projected cost is a total of $3 million — $2 million from the 2016 institutional bonds and $1 million from the 2017 institutional bond, said Rachel Stone, the communications and outreach specialist for the University. Institutional bonds allow the University to make “investments in large capital projects” by participating in debt commitments, which allow the University to make steps toward achieving the goal of becoming a “Destination University,” according to the UNM Bonds site. Kloeppel said students can

expect the new renovations to “accommodate the diverse University community” by having a space that can house small and large gatherings to encourage engagement and social and academic activities. The construction is projected to have “substantial completion” by Aug. 10, 2018, Stone said. To celebrate the renovations, there will be a groundbreaking

ceremony Jan. 18 at 9 a.m. at Smith Plaza. Madison Spratto is a news editor at the Daily Lobo. She can be contacted at or on Twitter @Madi_Spratto.

Lending Library helps students find books By Ariel Lutnesky @ArielLutnesky Outside of the University College Advisement Center lives a little bookshelf that houses anything from novels to picture books to textbooks to grad school entry exam practice books. This shelf, known as Nancy’s Lending Library, is meant for everyone’s enjoyment, according to Nancy Diodati-Miller, the woman who created it. “I decided to start the Lending Library, because a lot of the books that I have at home are books that are left over from when I was an undergrad,” Diodati-Miller said. “I thought that maybe some of those books are still being used in some of the classes and possibly some of the students can use them.”

She wants students to know the University’s Advisement Center cares about their success, and that’s why she thinks having opportunities to use free books is important, Diodati-Miller said. “It’s not all about just taking students’ money, taking their tuition and taking, taking, taking from them — it’s that we want to help them, that we want them to be successful, and sometimes a book makes a big difference,” she said. “It’s like, ‘Okay, I’ve got the help to pay for my class, but now how am I going to get my books?’ The Lottery doesn’t go as far as it used to anymore, so every penny counts nowadays.” When it comes to the variety of novels and self-help books also available, “sometimes it’s about giving your mind a break from the textbooks too and reading something else and getting off your phone,” Diodati-Miller said.

The original idea for Nancy’s Lending Library involved a little bit more of a borrow-and-bring-back process, as the title suggests, Diodati-Miller said. But since then, the Lending Library has become more of an exchange, she said. “What’s been happening is that somebody takes one book, and they bring back a book that they don’t want and then somebody else wants that book,” Diodati-Miller said. “So they haven’t necessarily been bringing back the same book, but different books.” The shelf has been popular with the faculty and staff as well, she said. Connie Jefferson, a unit administrator at the Advisement Center, is one of such participants. “When Nancy shared her idea with me, I told her how much I liked her plan,” Jefferson said, adding that Diodati-Miller allowed her to add some magazines to the

Lending Library. “I really like the community that’s evolved from (the Lending Library),” Diodati-Miller said. “I like the way the students will take the books, but then other people come and bring more, and it’s this constant flow and exchange of books. I think that’s my favorite part. I can see the shelf changing.” Next to the bookshelf, there is a sitting area where people wait for advisement appointments and read. Diodati-Miller has noticed that waiting students sometimes bring their small children, which she sees as a great opportunity for children to read more, she said. The Lending Library is primarily geared toward an adult audience, but Diodati-Miller said she is hopeful “people will think about some of the kids that come in. Maybe if they were sitting there reading a book, it wouldn’t be so boring for them to

wait. A couple times, people have left a few little picture books for children, but they just haven’t lasted very long. A free book for a kid? Boy, that’s a treat.” The bookshelf has lately been so full that nothing else fits, and Diodati-Miller is currently on the lookout for another bookshelf to add to the Lending Library, she said. Those interested in donating books or a bookshelf to the Lending Library can stop by the University Advisement and Enrichment Center. The bookshelf is next to the University College Advisement Center on the first floor. Ariel Lutnesky is a culture reporter for the Daily Lobo.

Yazmin succeeds as lawyer despite challenges by amy byres @amybyres12

Editor’s Note: This profile is part of a series on DACA recipients. Continue to stay updated with the Daily Lobo for more information. Yazmin Irazoqui is a medical student at the University of New Mexico and a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipient. Irazoqui and her twin sister, Jazmin Coronel, grew up in Phoenix, Arizona where they quickly learned they were expected to assimilate, she said. “In Phoenix they would send letters home telling my mother not to let us speak Spanish, and their caveat was, ‘It’ll help them learn the language faster.’ So actually growing up, my sister and I, we lost our native...language, and when I was an undergrad, I decided to do Spanish as a major, because I had lost my language,” Irazoqui said. With Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s actions against immigrants, raids became a commonality in Phoenix, and

“things were getting ugly,” Irazoqui said. “There were raids at people’s work, there were raids at public places. You go to the grocery store, and people would catch themselves in a raid. So we decided that we were going to move.” Irazoqui and her family moved to New Mexico where she and Coronel would face new systematic challenges. “Jazmin and I didn’t really understand what it meant to be undocumented,” Irazoqui said. “One, because we learned about it in our late teens, but when it came to applying to universities, that’s kind of when it started to click...Even just applying, every application has a question for a social security number, which is very fear-inducing.” In addition to the obstacles of paying for and being accepted into college, Irazoqui also had to be concerned about her safety at the school of her choice, she said. “I got accepted to some pretty big schools, and my mother sat me down and said, ‘Listen, we came here because here you are going be able to get in-state tuition, and you are

going to be able to get access to those scholarships. All these other places, I can’t afford them, and if they don’t give you scholarships, I don’t want to get your hopes up.’ So that was that,” Irazoqui said. She and her sister were accepted into New Mexico State University, but then their mother told them there was an immigration checkpoint between Las Cruces and Albuquerque, Irazoqui said. Thus, the sisters opted to attend UNM. Once Irazoqui was enrolled at UNM, she was denied from the UNM school of nursing twice. “On paper it was because I wasn’t considered a resident of the state of New Mexico, even though I fulfilled all the residency criteria,” she said. Before DACA was announced, Irazoqui met with various advisors that told her they could not guarantee that if she were to graduate from the program, she would be able to work as a nurse. “So I was turned down twice, and I switched majors halfway through my education. The plan was still medical school, so I just switched my

four-year degree to something else,” she said. After graduating from UNM with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Spanish with a minor in Chemistry and the University Honors Program, Irazoqui applied for DACA.

“It was a very stressful application, because half of our paperwork was still in Phoenix, and calling over there to get the paperwork was not the most pleasant experience,” she said. “By the

Jazmin uses her experience to help other immigrants By Amy Byres

@amybyres12 Editor’s Note: This profile is part of a series on DACA recipients. Continue to stay updated with the Daily Lobo for more information. Jazmin Coronel is the first Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipient at the University of New Mexico to be sworn into the bar to become a practicing attorney. This special circumstance, however, came with conditions, she said. “I still only have DACA. I don’t have any other type of protection at this time. The Board of Bar Examiners and the New Mexico Supreme Court had to make a decision, so two months and some change later, they decided to admit me, but it was a conditional admission. Meaning that I am allowed to have a license to practice law in good standings so long as I have work authorization. Well DACA was rescinded, and my work authorization ends in late April,” Coronel said. To be sworn into the Bar, students embark on a long journey through the UNM law program and often receive help from many individuals.

Coronel financially struggled to participate in the program and was nearly dropped from it, she said. Without “a single dollar in (her) account,” Coronel said the Bursar’s Office told her she had three months to pay $3,000 in order to continue to participate in the UNM Law Program. Coronel worked 45 to 50 hour weeks as a nursing assistant to help pay tuition costs, she said. She also received help from her mother and other people close to her who would help in any way they could, she said. Coronel’s husband would help her buy and rent books. Coronel recalled other times money was tight and said help from others allowed her to pursue the Bar. “There was one time my mom didn’t have enough money to pay for utility bills, so they shut off our gas and our electricity. One of the Career Services deans contacted a nonprofit board and they got a scholarship together, and they gave me that money, because at the time not only did they shut off the utilities, but I had to submit my Bar application, (which) was $500, and I don’t have that money,”

time I got my DACA, ironically, (it) was November of 2016, right around the elections. I remember opening (it and the) feeling when it finally came in. I was like, ‘I finally exist in this system, I finally exist.’ And then the elections happened, and I was like, ‘Well that’s worth nothing now.’” After Irazoqui finished her second year of medical school in December of 2016, she took a leave of absence to volunteer for the Dream Team. “I went crawling back to the Dream Team, and I told them what

can I do, ‘I’ll volunteer for you, I’ll do whatever you want me to do, but let me be a part of this fight that we have coming,’” Irazoqui said. “I figured that if there was a time to join the fight full on, it was going to be during the first year of the Trump administration. And they did, and they took me back this past year and I’ve been working as a community organizer. I was the central New Mexico field organizer.” The Dream Team showed Irazoqui the fight and struggle it was to win something like DACA and the affect

DACA has. “I had no idea of the work that had gone into achieving something like DACA to get relief for almost 1 million people, and then I kind of stumbled into the Dream Team, and I learned about all of these things like antiracism and about community organizing and leadership development, which was a whole new world to me,” she said. When it comes to DACA recipients, “it doesn’t matter if you’re in school, it doesn’t matter if you’re working in construction, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t make

you any less worthy or worthier — we are all human. And they want to strip us of that aspect of ourselves,” Irazoqui said. By volunteering for the Dream Team, Irazoqui found a sense of community and embraces new aspects of herself, she said. “I identify more with community, and so I’m very connected to my community and to my people. And I realized that my accomplishments are not just my own accomplishments; there have been a lot of people (that have) come before me, my mother included,

who had sacrifices, who have fought so that I can I be in these spaces that are not meant for people like me, so I can be sitting in a lecture hall at the medical school, be loud and telling them I’m not the only one and I won’t be the last one to pass through these doors facing these struggles,” Irazoqui said.

It was not until Coronel entered her second year of law school that she really began to experience what her culture is — that was when she met the New Mexico Dream Team, she said. Receiving DACA for the first time came with conflicting feelings, Coronel said. “We live in this system that tells us that we don’t exist, that we’re not worthy, that we’re less than — and this stupid little nine-digit number that comes along with two years of deferred action is supposed to make it okay,” she said. Coronel is an activist in the immigration movement and said when she met the Dream Team and other organizations, she realized that her story means something. “It definitely steered me in the direction of being an advocate in

the immigrant rights movement and trying to voice all of the concerns of other immigrant youth that I know that have been saying for years things that people wont listen to,” Coronel said. “I know amazing individuals who have taught me a lot, but they are not sitting before you. They’re not sitting before KOAT or national Univision. Why? Because the media looks for these high ‘high-profile Dreamers’ when I feel like it has to be worth more.” For Coronel, the term, “Dreamer,” capitalizes on the 1 percent of immigrants who qualify for DACA and are considered assets to society, but it does not include the entirety of those who need to be addressed, such as parents, she said. “The term, ‘Dreamer,’ has a lot of social capital, and people

know what you mean when you say ‘a Dreamer,’” Coronel said. “So the mainstream media and a lot of politicians with agendas use ‘Dreamer’ to describe individuals who are over achieving probably the 1 percent of the immigrant rights movement. I may be one of those 1 percents — some people may describe me as one — and it angers me, because...there are other individuals who are far smarter than I am — far more resilient than I am — but were dealt a different deck of cards.” Others wanted to help her when they heard about her situation; however people do not often want to help other DACA recipients who are not in a professional degreeseeking program, she said. “When I think about the word, ‘Dreamer,’ I think about our parents,

because we wouldn’t be here without our parents if it weren’t because they had the forethought to dream for us... So it depends of who you’re asking. I’m not a fan of that term, but it gets used because of that social capital,” Coronel said. She still plans to use her finance background and currently works as an economic development manager at a nonprofit legal organization, where she focuses on consumer protection law and tax law and helps immigrants develop their businesses.

Coronel said. Her success through the UNM law program came from not only herself but the people around her, she said. “I, by myself, wouldn’t be here. I had a lot of people help me get here. It’s been a journey, it’s only been three years since I’ve been in law school, but it feels like 10,” Coronel said. She and her twin sister, Yazmin Irazoqui, grew up not knowing they were undocumented; thus, the need to assimilate, to blend into a system that discriminates against them in retrospect was a pretty traumatizing experience, she said. “Often what it did would strip a lot of younger immigrant kids of their culture, and that’s something that I definitely did experience,” Coronel said.

Researchers study impact of stress on pregnancy by tom Hanlon @tomHanlonNM A researcher at the University of New Mexico has found that offspring during and after gestation are physically affected by stress the mother experiences. Researchers tested their predictions using 719 studies across 21 mammal species ranging from rodents to ungulates to primates, according to research documents provided by UNM evolutionary anthropologist Dr. Andres Berghänel. The results were used to compare the effects of prenatal stress in the mammals. Berghänel is the lead author of a study in conjunction with the University of Göttingen and the German Primate Center that aims to learn about how prenatal stress affects babies during gestation. The study was published in November in the science journal, Proceedings of

the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. The study found that prenatal maternal stress, or PREMS, affects offspring growth rates. The researchers proposed that because mothers undergoing adversity or stress are not able to invest as much energy in their offspring, the fetus’ growth would be stunted. Offspring that experience PREMS early in gestation undergo an accelerated pace of life and thus grow and mature faster to compensate for the lack of maternal investment, the study states. Berghänel said one of the reasons the study was conducted was to clear the confusion around prenatal stress. “The developmental origins of health and disease are a very important but also very confusing topic, and we wanted to clarify this by presenting and testing a new hypothesis,” Berghänel said. One of the researchers’ goals was to understand why there are highly variable patterns of growth rates in

disadvantaged mammal offspring. “Our comparative analysis across mammals brings order to previously ambiguous results on the effects that maternal stress has on the developing offspring,” Berghänel said. “Different studies, often on the same species, have reported that early adversity enhances, hampers or has no effect on offspring development and performance.” This study, in contrast to some previous studies, found that early adversity does physically affect offspring during gestation. The researchers found that PREMS late in gestation slowed offspring growth because of the mother’s reduced investment. Once the offspring reached the stage of nutritional independence, it grew at the same rate of offspring that did not experience PREMS. Whereas PREMS early in gestation resulted in offspring compensating for the lack of energy investment by the mother. “Stress during early gestation results in unaffected growth rates

during (nutritional) dependence but accelerated growth and increased size after weaning,” Berghänel said. The accelerated growth and increased size after weaning is an effect of PREMS early in gestation, according to the study. In short, this result explains why offspring that undergo early PREMS experience accelerated growth even after birth. Berghänel said that the study’s results could help in understanding why girls start their menstrual cycles earlier in impoverished neighborhoods. The researchers also noted that stress in early childhood can impact infant physiology and have effects that extend into adulthood. According to the Guttmacher Institute, pregnancies are highest among poor and low-income women. An article in Pediatrics and Child Health states that because pregnancies in poor areas are associated with single motherhood, methods such as visits by pediatricians to reduce the stress of the pregnancy are helpful. Kathleen Bickel, co-director of

Birthright of Albuquerque, a crisis pregnancy center, said helping a new or soon-to-be mother with stress, especially those from poor areas, is a priority when it comes to the well being of the child. “We try to get (mothers) into programs to try to assist her with being a good mother,” Bickel said. “We can alleviate her stress by at least getting her started with good prenatal care.” Berghänel’s study said that consideration of the timing of stress during gestation is crucial in understanding the effects of prenatal stress. The researchers indicated that their results will be helpful to the fields of biology, medicine and psychology in understanding the effects of PREMS. Tom Hanlon is a news reporter at the Daily Lobo.
