Bienvenidos! My name is Marisela Martinez-Cola
I am a Chicana born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Hence the phrase MiChicana.
Furthermore, since Kellogg’s Cereal is headquartered in my hometown,
I also call myself the original frosted mini-wheat
(fun on one side, serious on the other).
I am often asked about three things:
My research (which I love)
My mental health (which I’ve managed) and
My thoughts on race, ethnicity, and difference (which I share).
As a result, I’ve decided to put my passions out for the world.
Welcome to this journey!
