20 Latina Travel Bloggers You Need to Follow

Posted on Last updated: September 4, 2023

As you know I love being a travel blogger and content creator. As a Latina, I’m always on the lookout for other amazing Latina travel bloggers that are absolutely smashing it out of the park.

Here are 20 awesome Latina travel bloggers you need to be following!

1. Carol Cain ( @girlgonetravel )

If you love the vibe of Hallmark movies juxtaposed with world-class travel content, you need to be following Carol Cain.

Her travel content spans all around the world with her husband and kids, with tons of great tips, but she’s now relocated to the Finger Lakes in New York State with so much wholesome local content, she just feels like everyone’s best friend.

2. Olga Maria ( @latinaswhotravel and @dreamsinheels )

Olga looks after not one but two amazing travel sites. Her main one, Dreams in Heels, focuses on traveling in a luxurious way on a budget, and who doesn’t want to know how to do that?! We love a champagne lifestyle on a prosecco budget!

Her other content site, Latinas Who Travel is a community site and account that brings together content from Latina travel bloggers from all corners of the world.

3. Gerry Isabelle ( @DominicanAbroad ) 

Gerry is a super cool Dominican New Yorker with an awesome blend of cultural tips and insights about the Dominican Republic and loads of hidden gem videos and blogs about her hometown of New York. 

Her content is really authentic, full of great imagery and information, and you learn a ton about Dominican heritage in the process!

4. Olivia Christine ( @OChristine )

Now based in Philadelphia, Olivia Christine is an Afro-Latina who was born in the Bronx in New York City. In addition to being an amazing travel blogger and content creator, Olivia is also an activist, raising awareness of the autoimmune disease Lupus, which she’s been diagnosed with.

A lot of her content revolves around how to manage pain and triggers when you’re traveling and how to live life to the fullest – it’s super inspiring!

I‘ve lived abroad for many years and love helping others find work abroad and figure out their “Move Abroad Plan.” Check out my class below to get you started ASAP!

5. Annette White ( @bucketlistjourney )

If you’re a bit of a procrastinating queen who wants to travel more, you need to be following Annette White. She’s a goal-driven expert and marketer who shares how you can budget, plan, and live out your bucket list dreams and goals one small step at a time! 

6. Jessica van Dop DeJesus ( @DiningTraveler )

Food is one of my favorite things on the planet, so having Jessica van Dop DeJesus travel all the way around the world, sharing content and blogs about different restaurants, local recipes, and the bars in the area, is a lifesaver. 

If you consider yourself to be a foodie traveler make sure you’re following Jessica on socials and her blog.

7. Jen Ruiz ( @jenonaJetPlane )

Jen Ruiz has a pretty call story. She quit a career in law to travel the world and make content on a full-time basis. She even has a Ted Talk about it. If you’re looking for wanderlust-inducing travel content, you need to check her out. 

More recently, she’s released a bestselling book called 12 Trips in 12 Months, so go ahead and buy a copy wherever you get your books or ebooks from!

8. Taima (@PoorinaPrivatePlane)

I have so much love for anyone who’s putting out budget travel content into the world, so Taima is an awesome account to follow if you want to know how to travel without breaking the bank.

Unlike a lot of popular travel influencers, Taima has a full-time 9-5 so is all about carving out time and budget to travel and ways to fit in short trips when you can, and exploring close to home.

9. Francesca Mazurkiewicz ( @onegrloneworld )

If you love celebrity content and worldwide travel, Francesca combines the best of both worlds. She used to be a celebrity publicist so she still goes to a lot of the big events, but she’s now a beauty and travel content creator.

Her site is full of amazing tips for keeping your skin happy on the road, and there are plenty of luxury travel reels and photos on her feed to keep you inspired.

10. Dani Ramos ( @NoHurrytoGetHome )

Who doesn’t love seeing luxurious travel photos, videos, and blogs? Dani Ramos has been traveling full-time since she was 17 when she bought a one-way ticket to Madrid with $1,000 in her pocket and just kept on going from country to country from there!

Her content is full of amazing landscapes, and she wears amazing look after amazing look – it’s kind of insane!

11. Gabby Beckford ( @packslight )

Gabby’s site, Instagram, and TikTok accounts are jam-packed with useful tips and tricks for solo traveling as a woman.

From sharing myths about solo traveling to naming the safest solo spots in Europe, she’s got you covered! You can also follow along as she lives her best life hopping from place to place! 

12. Marlene ( @DeafinitelyWanderlust )

As the name of her blog and socials might suggest, Marlene is a deaf Latina traveler who specializes in sharing tips and advice for other deaf or disabled adventurers.

She shares her insights about what it’s like traveling as a deaf person, which places have been easily accessible for her, and places where the understanding of deaf people and disabilities isn’t quite as good yet. Definitely worth a follow!

13. Flavia Cornejo ( @LatinaTraveler )

Don’t get me wrong solo travel as a woman, especially a Latina woman, can be scary. I’ve been doing it for a while and it still hits sometimes!

Flavia Cornejo is a Peruvian-American travel blogger and content creator who posts tips and tricks for traveling solo and traveling sustainably – two things that are huge in the travel industry right now!

14. Brenda Mejia ( @Traveleira )

Unlike a lot of these accounts, Brenda Mejia’s Traveleira is entirely Spanish-language, and predominantly focuses on her Latin American travels. One of the main things that set Brenda’s content apart is the amount of content she’s written about using points and miles without having to get a credit card.

There are so many tips and tricks that she shares to save money on travel and get upgrades without having to go through a ton of annoying credit checks.

15. Gloria Apara ( @NomadicChica )

Another Latina travel content creator living and thriving in Germany, Gloria’s blog and content is full of fun and personality, which is a huge part of what her followers love about her!

There are SO many fabulous creators out there, Hanny! We’d love to see more from you as a Latina blogger – can you share your site with us?

I love how @travelistabonita is never included on these lists. She works in sustainable travel and is Puerto Rican with over 6K followers on insta and runs a facebook community of ethical women travelers with over 2K members. Sad she is always overlooked.

Perfect Your PPC Marketing Strategy Paid Search Checklist

1. define your goals.

Are you aiming to increase web traffic or grow your social media presence? Figure out why you’re leveraging paid media in the first place and build your strategy from there. Having clearly defined goals in mind will help you focus on your brand’s key priorities.

2. Outline a TOFU/MOFU/BOFU Strategy

Designing strategies that cater to all three stages of the buyer journey ensures that you’re maximizing your brand’s reach. Every user at every stage is valuable—and you have to make sure you’re creating paid media content that speaks to each audience type.

3. Research Keywords for Search

Effective paid media is tied to targeting the right keywords. If you’re leveraging paid search ads to appear on SERPs (search engine results pages), then in-depth research is necessary. Bid on the keywords that are most relevant to your business to trigger only the most effective ad appearances.

4. Craft Engaging Ad Copy & Stand-Out Creative

Gather your team—because it’s time to start coming up with ad copy that wins attention. The key is to resonate with your audience and inspire engagement. Be real. Be relatable. And most importantly, don’t underestimate the power of creativity.

5. Create Conversion-Friendly Landing Pages

Do the landing pages on your website effectively push visitors further down the sales funnel? If not, you’re letting potential customers slip through your fingers. Optimize each of your landing pages so that they nudge users towards converting.

6. Choose Your Paid Platforms

The options are plenty when it comes to paid advertising, including Google, Meta, TikTok, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and Pinterest among others. Analyze who your target demographic is, research where it’s best to connect with them, and then target the platforms where you wish to build awareness.

7. Build Campaigns & Ad Groups/Sets

If you’re ready to build your paid media ad campaign, you’ll find that it will be further broken down into “ad groups” to ensure more effective pay-per-click advertising. These ad groups house one or more ads that have similar targets or categories. Let’s say your brand’s website features categories such as clothing, shoes, and accessories. Creating ad groups according to keywords that fall under these categories will help the PPC system decide when to show ads for these products.

8. Don’t Forget About Retargeting Ads

Retargeting ads are bound to succeed because it’s a second shot at a conversion. Visitors have shown interest in the product/service once before, and sometimes all it takes is a little reminder to push them to the checkout page. So don’t forget to retarget and aim better this time.

9. Run A/B Tests

In the world of paid media, what works and what doesn’t? You’ll have to run A/B tests to find out! Whether you’re testing which keywords bring more traffic or which social platforms earn more ad engagement, you won’t find out what really works for your brand until you test it.

10. Track Your Results

Revisit your initial goals. Did your efforts bring about the results you expected? Tracking results is an essential step in your brand’s paid advertising campaigns. The data you collect from currently running ads will help lay the foundation for your future campaigns.

11. Adjust as Needed

After tracking your results, you’ll be able to see where adjustments are necessary. There’s always room for improvement, so keep striving to consistently resonate and build trust with your audience—it’s how to create paid ads that pay off.

Through her Instagram, Dweck teaches us how to make delicious chiles rellenos while also educating her audience about Mexican culture, and taking pride in your heritage. Frequently promoting other Latinx vendors and influencers, Dweck’s account will also help you find everything from adorable kid’s clothing to cooking classes taught by locals in Mexico, and more.

Gloria Lucas

Eating disorders are rarely discussed openly within Latinx communities, but fortunately Gloria Lucas is helping to change that. With Nalgona Positivity Pride, Lucas shows Latinx women that their bodies are all beautiful—and that many of their disorders may from factors they never considered, like colonialism. Lucas is also a hardcore entrepreneur who has expanded her influence to include the Mujeres Market, a market for women, gender non-conforming, and femmes of color). And fun fact? Nalgona is slang for a Latina with a big booty, so with her name alone, she’s helping us reclaim and love our curves.

Bertha Hidalgo

Bertha Hidalgo is one incredibly driven woman. An epidemiologist and mother of two, Dr. B created Chic in Academia to show off her fly collegiate looks. While she still shares plenty of her outfits, Dr. B’s Insta also gives us insight into what it’s like to be a professional scientist—inspiring a new generation of Latinas looking to get into the STEM field at any age.

Kimberly Guerra

Sometimes all you need is a good friend to remind you what a badass you truly are. Kimberly Guerra does exactly that via her Instagram, Brown Badass Bonita. Through a series of inspirational talks and quotes—as well as some dope shirts and other crafted goodies—Guerra reminds Latinas that they are beautiful and capable all at once. Her empowering messages and merchandise ( including a new book Mariposa ) will certainly keep you inspired on the daily.

Elizabeth Acevedo

For many of us Latinas growing up, finding authors that looked like us and spoke about our realities was practically impossible. Fortunately, authors like Afro-Dominicana Elizabeth Acevedo are doing the work. Acevedo writes books that challenge and break down stereotypes (like With the Fire on High , a book about an ambitious Afro-Latina teen mom making her dreams reality). Her 'gram also provides a glimpse into the life of a Latina author who knows her worth—and wants us to know ours, too.

Cindy Morales

Cindy Morales may be “tiny” (no, really, that’s her nickname), but she sure is fierce. The petite Central American influencer is constantly showing off how she lives her own best life by celebrating her culture with fashion and fun. The four-foot, eight-and-a-half tall insta-blogger also yields the power of YouTube to further her reach, and even has an Etsy shop to sell her short-girl friendly and Nicaraguan wares.

Gerry Isabelle

If you’ve ever dreamt of seeing the world but are still trying to figure out how, Gerry Isabelle might have some pointers for you. The world-traveling Latina has been just about everywhere: Belgium, Nepal, Bali, Cuba, and of course, the Dominican Republic. Isabelle actually creates custom tours for busy tourists who want to get an inside look into the country of her people—for a fee, of course, because she’s not only a nomad, but also a Latina entrepreneur!

Massy Arias

If you’re looking for an influencer to remind you to work out and take care of your body, Massy Arias has that covered. The health coach and CEO of a vegan supplement company has a whopping 2.6 million followers who love to watch her work out—sometimes even with her toddler! Arias also offers plenty of realistic, health-oriented tips to help you attain your goals.

Lorraine C. Ladish

There’s certainly plenty of stigma against women of a certain age, but there are amazing women who are shattering those stereotypes, and Lorraine C. Ladish is one of them. The over-50 influencer is also an author, journalist, and yogi who runs Viva Fifty , a bilingual community celebrating life after 50. Ladish loves sharing everything about her life, from parenting adult children to her travels, yoga poses, and showing how fabulous being a 50+ Latina can be.

Adriana Alejandre

Adriana Alejandre is a licensed marriage and family therapist, but she’s also so much more. The mother and creator of the podcast and Insta account Latinxtherapy, Alejandre is doing all she can to crush the stigma of mental health within Latinx communities. Whether you need help finding a Latinx therapist or simply need a few inspiring mental health memes, follow her account.

Karissa Raya

Santa Ana-based Karissa Raya is a self-professed “mamá on a self-love-healing journey.” Raya works as a birth doula and photographer as well as a placenta encapsulation specialist through her company, Olive La Vida , and basically lives and breathes all things motherhood. Moreover, she loves to show the nitty gritty reality of mamahood on her Instagram posts, from homeschooling moments to attachment parenting lessons to discussing the difficulties of maternal mental health.

Jennifer Barreto Leyva

Jennifer Barreto Leyva is a mujer on a mission to diversify beauty and advocate for women of all sizes. The Latina plus-size model is also a television and radio host and the editor-in-chief of Belleza XL , a magazine geared toward Latinx people celebrating their plus sized bodies. Simply put, Barreto Leyva is not only living her best life, she’s also reminding you that you can do it, too—and there are no size requirements.

Arianna Davis

Sure, we may be a bit biased since she just so happens to be Oprah Daily's Senior Director of Editorial Strategy. But just like our brand motto, Davis's Instagram is all about not just living your best life, but living it well. Sometimes that means by sharing honest reflections on mental health and self-care (she's got bath tips galore!). On other days, the author of What Would Frida Do ? offers book recommendations, often celebrating fellow Latina writers, and you know you're in for a treat when her posts include glimpses of her impossibly cute dog, Leo . Her content is unapologetic, gracious, and provides a necessary reminder that we all need to be a bit more kind to ourselves. Oh, and did we mention the pup?

Headshot of Priscilla Blossom

Priscilla Blossom is a queer Latina freelance writer focusing on travel, motherhood, identity, health and wellness, and pop culture. Originally from Miami, she now lives in Denver where she spends her time practicing yoga, frequenting indie cinemas and literary events, and catching Pokemon with her young son. She sometimes blogs at www.prisblossom.com, but she's mostly social on Twitter @prisblossom and Instagram @prisblossom.

The power of latin influencers – leading hispanic influencers in the world.

Latin influencers have taken the social media world by storm, and over the last decade, they have become increasingly in demand in digital marketing campaigns. Hispanic influencers immense popularity can be attributed to the fact that they infuse their work with love for their Hispanic heritage, language, and culture.

This is particularly true of the Latin population within the United States. As eMarketer puts it, Hispanics are the key drivers of U.S. population growth. The 2020 U.S. Census shows that the U.S. Hispanic population has reached 62.1 million , which makes up about 18.7% of the U.S. population and accounts for about 5 2% of the country’s population growth between 2010 and 2020.

With the steady growth of the Hispanic population in the U.S., their purchasing power has also grown substantially over the years. Based on the data provided by the Selig Center for Economic Growth,  the Hispanic buying power increased significantly over the last 30 years, from $213 billion in 1990 to $1.9 trillion in 2020 . This accounted for 11.1% of U.S. buying power in 2020 . By 2025, it will account for 12% of all U.S.  buying power . 

These data suggest that the Hispanic/ Latin consumer market is the largest ethnic market in the U.S., making it a viable target for brands to tap into. To approach this growing market, brands need to understand the Hispanic consumers, who they are, and what they purchase most frequently.

Moreover, considering that these consumers are now more digitally savvy as they make their purchases online, brands should also know where they spend their time, what sites or social media platforms they frequent the most, and how they consume content.

In this case, leveraging Latin influencers is one of the best options for brands to reach their target audience.

If you’re searching for the right person to forge a partnership with, here at Amra & Elma , we present this list of 50 Top Latin Influencers in 2023 to help you promote your brand or products to Latin consumers. These Hispanic influencers come from diverse backgrounds, with different areas of interest, and living in or outside of the U.S, all look back on their roots with much pride and appreciation. They are the best persons to connect with the consumers whose language and culture are deeply ingrained in their identities.

Latina Instagram influencers also provide a valuable resource for brands that want to reach the Latinx community.

Latina Instagram influencers have taken over this famous platform, and they are so popular for a wide range of reasons. Their popularity mainly exists because they are relatable, authentic, and vocal about their outstanding and inspiring experiences.

Latina Instagram influencers are also very authentic, and brands from all over the globe love working with them because of their trustworthiness.

We need to be the lead and not the sidekick.” Also as one of the most prominent and well-known Latina Instagram influencers, Gina Rodriguez is unafraid to speak her mind, and her followers admire that her.

Turning brands into influencers is Andrea’s superpower. How does she do it? By creating content intuitively, so that it genuinely resonates with audiences.

“I recommend following the top creators within your niche as well as top creators in adjacent industries. Creators tend to hop on trends faster than traditional users.” 

“Pay attention to repeating concepts on your For You page and Explore Page . If you start to see a pattern, tap on the audio and see if there’s any recent activity. Is it picking up momentum?”

“ Don't stress! Not every trend will fit your brand and that's okay.”

Why Every Brand Should Partner with Latinx and Hispanic Influencers

Reading Time: 14 Minutes

GRIN also recommends this free guide:

How to Find Influencers Guidebook

Representation matters when it comes to marketing, and the value of building an inclusive community goes far beyond just increased brand sentiment. Research shows that members of younger generations are more likely to consider brands that take a diverse and equitable approach to their marketing tactics when making purchases. 

Hispanic and Latinx communities make up a huge percentage of Americans, and they’re taking the creator economy by storm. Working with Latinx and Hispanic influencers allows you to tap into authentic communication, improve brand sentiment, and enhance your DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) efforts. 

Now’s the perfect time to start partnering with Latinx and Hispanic creators (if you haven’t already), so join us as we share everything you need to know. 

Famous Latinx influencers in history 

While the term “influencer” conjures up images of social media stars, this is just a modern adaptation. In fact, influencers have been around since ancient Rome , with famous gladiators promoting oils. 

Celebrities and people with clout have long worked with companies to promote their products and leverage their influence. And there are plenty of Hispanic and Latinx influencers throughout history who have done just that. 

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo is a celebrated Mexican painter, and her work has had a lasting influence on artists around the world. While Frida never appeared in an ad or endorsed a product during her lifetime, brands use her image in ads and on their products in hopes of leveraging the icon to increase sales. 

Desi Arnaz 

Best known for his role as Ricky Ricardo on I Love Lucy , Desi Arnaz was also a producer, Broadway performer, and musician. In fact, experts credit Desi with bringing the conga line to the U.S. Desi, alongside his wife Lucille, promoted brands like Westinghouse and Philip Morris to their loyal fans. 

Selena Quintanilla 

Selena Quintanilla, also known as the “Queen of Tejano Music,” was a Grammy winner and cultural icon. Selena leveraged her fame to highlight brands like Coca-Cola and Agree Shampoo.  

Rita Moreno 

Rita Moreno is an actress and performer, and she was the first Latina to earn the elusive combination of the E.G.O.T. (Emmy, Oscar, Grammy, Tony). During her long and glorious career (which continues to this day), Rita has been the celebrity face of brands like Pizza Hut and Pepsodent. 

Why bringing Hispanic and Latinx representation into your campaign is essential

The world we live in today is incredibly diverse, and this should be represented in everything you do within your marketing program (and your business in general). In fact, many people are beginning to call out brands for their lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) in their business practices, since it can be extremely harmful to leave out members of a community (even if it is unintentional). 

See Also: Understanding DE&I in the Creator Economy

As of 2020 , 18.7% of Americans are Latinx or Hispanic, and experts expect this percentage to increase over time. Plus, they carry a buying power of $2.5 trillion , meaning it’s essential to create content that helps them feel like valued and empowered members of your brand community. 

And while money is always a motivator no matter your industry, DE&I should be a priority regardless of the financial benefit. In 2019 , researchers studied the share of online users who feel that brands take advantage of them and divided the results by ethnicity and race. Hispanic respondents expressed some of the highest levels of perceived exploitation. 

Surface-level inclusivity to boost sales comes off as inauthentic as the motive behind it. But by focusing on DE&I in all aspects of business and actively engaging with the Hispanic community, brands can counteract a lot of mistrust.

Where to reach Hispanic and Latinx audiences online 

Studies show that social media platform usage varies by race and ethnicity . In fact, Latinx people prefer Facebook, Snapchat , and Instagram to Pinterest and LinkedIn. 

And while spending time on these platforms, Hispanic audiences enjoy watching influencer content. In fact, a survey revealed that Hispanic audiences are the most likely to pay attention to creator recommendations.

John Kruzel

( Last updated July 24, 2019 .)

U.S. law enforcement agencies and Congress are investigating links between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia, as part of a broader probe into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election.

To date, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has resulted in five former Trump aides agreeing to work with Mueller’s team under plea deals. Numerous Trump associates had contacts with Russian government officials or business people during the campaign and presidential transition.

As the investigation has unfolded, the Trump team’s stories have changed, recollections have been refreshed and government officials have come forward with new assessments of the intelligence.

This timeline documents everything we know thus far about the investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. The sources are either verified events, court filings, public statements, or on-the-record media reports.

Have feedback or questions? Email us.

Spring 2014: A Kremlin-linked company that engages in influence operations, known as the Internet Research Agency, devised a strategy to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Its goal was to spread distrust toward candidates and the American political system.

June 16, 2015: Donald Trump announced candidacy for president.

July 2015: Hackers supported by the Russian government penetrated  the Democratic National Committee’s network, stealing large volumes of data and maintaining access for about a year .

Mid 2015: Thousands of Kremlin-backed social media accounts began to spread propaganda and disinformation, establishing a clear preference for Trump.

Oct. 28, 2015 : Trump signed a letter of intent to negotiate the construction of a Trump Tower in Russia, as first reported by CNN .

January 2016: Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime lawyer, emailed  Russian President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Later, Cohen would falsely testify to Congress that the deal ended this month. In fact, discussions about the project lasted as late as June 2016.

March 19, 2016: The chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, John Podesta, fell victim to an email phishing scam. It is believed this is how a group of Russian hackers gained access to his email account.

Early March 2016: George Papadopoulos joined the Trump campaign as an adviser. While traveling in Italy in mid March, Papadopoulos met a London-based professor whom Papadopoulos understood to have "substantial connections to Russian government officials."

March 21, 2016: Trump named Papadopoulos and Carter Page as members of his foreign policy team, in an interview with the Washington Post.

March 24, 2016: Papadopoulos met in London with the professor who introduced him to a female Russian national who Papadopoulos believed  to be a relative of Putin with links to other senior Russian officials.

March 31, 2016: Papadopoulos told  Trump, Jeff Sessions and other campaign members that he can use his Russian connections to arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin.   

April 2016: Papadopoulos’ professor source told  the Trump adviser about a meeting with high-ranking Russian government officials in Moscow who have "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails."

April 2016: Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak attended Trump’s foreign policy speech in Washington, where he met  Trump’s son-in-law and campaign adviser Jared Kushner.

May 2016: Donald Trump, Jr. met  with Alexander Torshin at National Rifle Association convention in Louisville. Torshin is a former senator and deputy head of Russia's central bank.

Mid 2016: The Kremlin-linked Internet Research Agency established a strategy of supporting Donald Trump’s candidacy and disparaging Hillary Clinton.

June 3, 2016: Trump, Jr. received an email from Rob Goldstone, a business associate. Goldstone told the younger Trump that Moscow supported his father’s candidacy, and said he has a connection to a Russian government official with incriminating evidence against Hillary Clinton.

Goldstone told Trump Jr.: "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump."

The younger Trump replied that same day: "If it’s what you say I love it."

June 7, 2016: Trump announced he would soon make a "major speech" on Clinton.

June 8, 2016: Russian intelligence officers launched  DC Leaks, a website used to release stolen emails.

June 9, 2016: Trump, Jr., Manafort and Kushner met with a Russian national and several others at Trump Tower, based on Goldstone’s promise to Trump Jr. that a "Russian government attorney" would deliver damaging information about Clinton.

Page emailed campaign staffers that the deputy prime minister had "expressed strong support for Mr. Trump," and that he had gleaned "incredible insights and outreach" in Russia.

Mid July 2016: Trump campaign associate J.D. Gordon successfully lobbied  for the GOP platform to be changed to benefit Russia. Language was inserted vowing not to provide lethal aid to Ukrainians in their fight against Russian-backed separatists.

July 18, 2016: Sessions talked  with Kislyak after Sessions’ speech at the Republican National Convention.

July 20, 2016: Sessions talked with Kislyak after a speech. Separately, Trump campaign associates Page and Gordon met with Kislyak.

July 22, 2016: WikiLeaks began  releasing DNC emails ahead of the Democratic National Convention. The first tranche — nearly 20,000 emails — revealed an embarrassing glimpse at internal DNC deliberations.

Late July 2016 : A senior Trump campaign official was directed to contact Trump’s longtime friend and associate Roger Stone about any additional WikiLeaks releases, and what additional damaging information the group possessed on the Clinton campaign.

July 25, 2016: The FBI publicly confirmed  its investigation into the DNC hack.  

July 2016: The FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee later confirmed that information from Papadopoulos triggered the investigation.

July 27, 2016: During a press conference, Trump said  of Clinton’s emails: "Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you can find the 33,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

July 27, 2016: Russians for the first time began to target Clinton’s emails.

August 27, 2016:  Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey asking the bureau to investigate alleged Russian interference in the election. Reid also raised concerns about contacts Trump campaign members reportedly made with WikiLeaks and Russian nationals under U.S. sanction.

Steele wrote the dossier on behalf of Fusion GPS, a research firm whose work had been funded in part by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

March 1, 2017: The Washington Post reported that Sessions met with Kislyak twice over the previous year, encounters that Sessions failed to disclose during his confirmation proceedings. Sessions later confirmed  these meetings.

July 8, 2017: The New York Times reported on the June 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower where Trump, Jr., Manafort and Kushner met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer. That story prompted Trump Jr. to issue the following statement to the media:

"It was a short introductory meeting. I asked Jared (Kushner) and Paul (Manafort) to stop by. We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up.

"I was asked to attend the meeting by an acquaintance, but was not told the name of the person I would be meeting with beforehand."

July 9, 2017: The New York Times reported that Trump Jr. arranged the June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting after being promised he would receive damaging information about Clinton. For the second consecutive day, Trump Jr. issued a statement to the media about the meeting. ( Read a full account of the Trump team’s shifting explanations.)

July 14, 2017:  One of the attendees of the Trump Tower meeting, Russian-American Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Soviet soldier with experience in military counterintelligence, said that after the meeting, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya left behind documents for the Trump campaign. According to an interview with the  Associated Press , Akhmetshin said Veselnitskaya believed the documents detailed "the flow of illicit funds to the Democrats," and she suggested to the campaign that publishing them could help Trump's electoral chances.

Aug. 1, 2017: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about a news report that the president had tried to change the narrative around Trump Jr.'s meeting with the Russian lawyer. Sanders said  Trump "weighed in" on his son’s statement about the June 9 Trump Tower meeting. Sanders’ statement is inconsistent with previous explanations offered by Trump’s team.

Aug. 2, 2017: Trump signed a law imposing new Russia sanctions in response to Moscow’s interference with the election. Congress largely passed the bill — with veto-proof majorities — in response to Trump’s downplaying of the meddling question and his seeming interest in lifting sanctions against Russia, experts said .

April 9, 2018: The FBI raided  the offices of Trump’s longtime lawyer and aide Michael Cohen. The case was referred to the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York.

April 27, 2018: Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee released  a final report on the committee’s Russia investigation over Democratic objections. The committee's Republican members found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, but concluded that Russia conducted cyberattacks on U.S. political institutions during the 2016 campaign.

The committee’s top Democrat, Adam Schiff of California, criticized GOP members for closing the investigation prematurely , and called their findings superficial and politically motivated. Statements made by Cohen about Trump Tower Moscow, which Cohen later admitted were lies, go largely unchallenged in the report.

July 13, 2018: The special counsel indicted  12 Russian intelligence officers for their role in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton campaign, and leaking of emails and documents.

The indictment made reference to an unnamed U.S. person who "was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump," and who communicated during the election with Guccifer 2.0, a front for Russian operatives. Former Trump campaign adviser Stone acknowledged he is "probably" the U.S. person referenced in the indictment.

July 16, 2018: In a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump appeared to accept Putin’s denial of Russian election interference. (The following day Trump claimed he misspoke.)

July 27, 2018: Trump denie d a CNN report  that he knew in advance about the June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting. The report was based on unnamed sources who said former Trump attorney Cohen is willing to confirm Trump's foreknowledge of the meeting to the special counsel. In repsonse, Trump tweeted, "I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr. Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?)," an apparent reference to Cohen's role managing taxi companies.

Aug. 1, 2018: Trump called on his attorney general to end the Mueller probe, tweeting : "This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further."

Aug. 5, 2018: Trump tweeted  about the June, 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower, saying it was "a meeting to get information on an opponent," adding to the series of  shifting explanations of the meeting arranged by Donald Trump Jr.

Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 5, 2018

Aug. 21, 2018:  Manafort was convicted of eight of 18 felony counts . A jury found Manafort guilty on five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts bank fraud. A mistrial was declared for the other 10 charges.

Aug. 21, 2018: Cohen pled guilty in federal court to a series of criminal charges, including a campaign finance law violation that implicated the president. His other convictions concern tax fraud and bank fraud.

Nov. 26, 2018: Papadopoulos reported  to prison to serve a two-week sentence.

The special counsel's office argued in a court filing that "crimes and lies" Manafort committed after the plea deal relieve Mueller’s team from honoring their end of the bargain. Manafort denied the charges.

Nov. 26, 2018: Pundit and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi rejected  a plea offer from the special counsel. A draft of the plea deal alleges Corsi gave Stone advance notice in August 2016 that WikiLeaks would release damage information on Hillary Clinton. A subsequent indictment of Stone reiterated many of the same allegations.

Nov. 27, 2018: Manafort denied ever meeting with Julian Assange, following a report in The Guardian claiming Trump’s onetime campaign manager held secret talks with the WikiLeaks editor at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

"I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him," Manafort said in a statement. "I have never been contacted by anyone connected to Wikileaks, either directly or indirectly. I have never reached out to Assange or Wikileaks on any matter."

Nov. 29, 2018: Cohen pled guilty to to lying to Congress about the Russian-based development proposal Trump Tower Moscow. Cohen admitted he lied when he told lawmakers he had only briefed Trump on the project three times, and that negotiations broke down in January 2016. In fact, talks continued as late as June 2016, after Trump became the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee.

Cohen also concealed his communications with Kremlin officials, as well as the fact he asked Trump to travel to Moscow to further the deal. He said his lies were intended to harmonize with the Trump campaign’s "political messaging."

Nov. 29, 2018: Cohen’s Russian business associate, Felix Sater, said he and Cohen were interested in offering a $50 million penthouse in Trump Tower Moscow to Putin because they believed "it would entice other wealthy buyers to purchase their own."

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Sater’s comment, if true, shows House investigations should continue to probe "what, if any, financial leverage the Russians may hold over President Trump and the Trump Organization."

Schiff, who is expected to lead the committee when the Democrats take control of the House in January 2019, said the panel intends to call Cohen back to testify again, as do Senate Democrats. The House committee’s Democratic members also plan to send the special counsel all unredacted transcripts of interviews the panel conducted as part of its Russia investigation.

Nov. 30, 2018: Trump responded via Twitter to defend his pursuit of Trump Tower Moscow, describing his business as " very legal and very cool ."

"Oh, I get it! I am a very good developer, happily living my life, when I see our Country going in the wrong direction (to put it mildly). Against all odds, I decide to run for President & continue to run my business-very legal & very cool, talked about it on the campaign trail … Lightly looked at doing a building somewhere in Russia. Put up zero money, zero guarantees and didn’t do the project. Witch Hunt!"

Nov. 30, 2018: The special counsel’s office said it may retry Manafort on previous charges that led to hung jury.

Nov. 30, 2018: Lawyers for Cohen requested  that he be spared prison, citing Cohen’s cooperation with federal investigations, including the special counsel probe.

Dec. 7, 2018 : The special counsel’s office accused  Manafort of lying multiple times to investigators, in breach of his federal plea deal.

Dec. 12, 2018 : Cohen was  sentenced  to three years in prison for financial crimes as well as for lying to Congress. He was also ordered to pay $2 million in penalties.

Before the sentence was handed down, Cohen told the courtroom, "It was my own weakness and a blind loyalty to this man (Trump) that led me to choose a path of darkness over light. Time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds."

Dec. 13, 2018 : Maria Butina, a Russian living in the United States, pled guilty to conspiring to act as an illegal foreign agent. Butina has been accused of trying to infiltrate Republican power circles.

Jan. 8, 2019 : Manafort’s lawyers submitted a court filing denying that Manafort breached his plea deal, as the special counsel’s office alleged. The filing inadvertently revealed that Manafort shared 2016 election polling data with his business partner Kilimnik, whom Mueller had previously charged with of obstruction of justice.

Jan. 18, 2019 : The special counsel denied a BuzzFeed News report which claimed that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project. In a rare public comment, a spokesman for Mueller said , "BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the special counsel’s office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony are not accurate."

Jan. 23, 2019 : Cohen, in a statement from his lawyer, announced he would not voluntarily testify before the House Oversight Committee in coming weeks, as he had planned. Cohen cited "ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. (Rudolph) Giuliani" as among the reasons for the reversal. The following day, the Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed him; he is slated to testify Feb. 12.

Jan. 24, 2019 : The FBI arrested  Trump's longtime friend and associate Stone. He was charged with seven felonies, including lying to Congress under oath, witness tampering and obstruction. The indictment lays out a pattern of behavior that gives the strong impression Stone tried to conceal his contacts with WikiLeaks.

Jan. 27, 2019 : The Trump administration lifted sanctions on three companies connected to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, over objections from Democratic lawmakers, who were joined by some Republicans. Experts said sanctions relief wasn’t a demonstration of Trump’s coziness with Russian oligarchs, so much as it was his administration’s way of ending the disruption it inflicted on the global metals market when it sanctioned Deripaska’s aluminum company Rusal. (Read our full report .)

March 22, 2019:  Mueller concluded  his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters. Mueller submitted a confidential report to Attorney General William Barr explaining his "prosecution and declination decisions." Barr told lawmakers who lead congressional judiciary committees in a letter that he would advise them the special counsel's principal conclusions, perhaps as soon as this weekend.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House had not received or been briefed on the report. She added that Barr would determine the next steps, adding, "We look forward to the process taking its course."

April 18, 2019: Barr released a redacted version of the special counsel's report spanning about 400 pages. It reaffirmed that Russia favored Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and that the Trump campaign believed it would benefit from Russia’s interference. However, the investigation did not establish coordination or a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The report also outlined "key issues and events" examined as part of the investigation on whether Trump obstructed justice. Mueller did not make a determination on that matter. "The evidence we obtained about the president's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred," Mueller said. "Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

(Read more about our key takeaways from the report.)

May 29, 2019: Mueller brought the investigation to a formal close in his first public statement about the Russia probe. Mueller recapped Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and explained why he could not have brought charges against the president even if he found they were substantiated.

Under long-standing department policy, Mueller said, a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while in office. "That is unconstitutional," Mueller said, adding that even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from the public, "that, too, is prohibited."

Mueller’s last words emphasized the overarching findings of the nearly two-year probe.

"I will close by reiterating the essential allegation of our indictments, that there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election," Mueller said. "That allegation deserves the attention of every American."

July 24, 2019:  Mueller testified before two House committees, limiting himself to findings published in the special counsel's report. He concluded his opening statement by saying, "Over the course of my career, I’ve seen a number of challenges to our democracy. The Russian government’s effort to interfere in our election is among the most serious. As I said on May 29, this deserves the attention of every American."

"Landed In Moscow": PM Modi's Post Ahead Of Bilateral With Putin Today

Prime minister narendra modi has been treading a fine line between maintaining a longstanding relationship with moscow and courting closer western security ties.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrives in Moscow

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Moscow yesterday evening, marking the first time he visited Russia since it launched its campaign in Ukraine. Russia's First Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov received him at the airport.

"I look forward to further deepening special and privileged strategic partnership between our nations," PM Modi said after landing in Moscow. He will hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin today.

Landed in Moscow. Looking forward to further deepening the Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership between our nations, especially in futuristic areas of cooperation. Stronger ties between our nations will greatly benefit our people. pic.twitter.com/oUE1aC00EN — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) July 8, 2024

Mr Putin hosted a private dinner for PM Modi tonight ahead of tomorrow's 22nd India-Russia summit in Moscow.

"PM is set to hold substantive discussions with President Vladimir Putin to take forward the special partnership between the two countries. He will also interact with the Indian community in Russia," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said on X.

PM Modi has been treading a fine line between maintaining a longstanding relationship with Moscow and courting closer Western security ties. The visit is also PM Modi's first since he returned to power for a third term.

"I look forward to reviewing all aspects of bilateral cooperation with my friend President Vladimir Putin and sharing perspectives on various regional and global issues," PM Modi had said in a statement before leaving India. "We seek to play a supportive role for a peaceful and stable region."

Russia is a key supplier of cut-price oil and weapons to India. Western powers have in recent years also cultivated ties with India as a bulwark against China and its growing influence in the Asia-Pacific, while pressuring it to distance itself from Russia.

PM Modi last visited Russia in 2019 and hosted Mr Putin in Delhi two years later, weeks before Russia began its offensive against Ukraine.

Sources said the focus of the visit is economic agenda - energy, trade, manufacturing, and fertiliser - and that a solution cannot be found on the battlefield.

India and Russia have maintained a close relationship since the Cold War, and Russia was for a long time India's largest arms supplier. But Ukraine has stretched Russia's arms supplies thin. Russia's share of Indian imports of arms has shrunk considerably in recent years, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

At the same time, India has become a major buyer of Russian oil, providing a much-needed export market for Moscow after it was cut off from traditional buyers in Europe. That has dramatically reshaped energy ties, with India saving itself billions of dollars while bolstering Moscow's war coffers.

India's month-on-month imports of Russian crude "increased by eight per cent in May, to the highest levels since July 2023", according to commodity tracking data compiled by the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air.

From Russia, PM Modi will travel to Vienna for the first visit to the Austrian capital by an Indian leader since former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1983.

Putin embraces Modi on Indian leader’s first visit since Russia’s full-scale Ukraine invasion

M OSCOW — India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Moscow on Monday for a two-day visit, his first since Russia sent troops into Ukraine, complicating the relationship between the longtime partners and pushing Russia closer to India’s rival, China.

Modi met Russian President Vladimir Putin at his residence outside Moscow, to be followed by talks at the Kremlin on Tuesday. Modi last traveled to Russia in 2019, when he attended a forum in the far eastern port of Vladivostok and met with Putin. The leaders also saw each other in September 2022 in Uzbekistan, at a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization bloc.

Modi posted photos of his arrival in Moscow on the social-media platform X, in both Russian and English, saying he was “looking forward to further deepening the Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership between our nations.”

“Stronger ties between our nations will greatly benefit our people,” he wrote, also sharing a picture of himself and Putin hugging.

Later, the two leaders were pictured in videos shared by the Kremlin at Putin’s residence, Novo-Ogaryovo, near Moscow.

Putin drove Modi around the grounds in a buggy and showed him his stable with horses. According to state news agencies, the two had earlier watched a horse show with performers in national Russian dress.

Modi thanked Putin on X for hosting him at Novo-Ogaryovo and said he was looking forward to Tuesday’s talks which he hoped will “go a long way in further cementing the bonds of friendship between India and Russia.”

Russia has had strong ties with India since the Cold War, and New Delhi’s importance as a key trading partner has grown since the Kremlin sent troops into Ukraine in February 2022. China and India have become key buyers of Russian oil following sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies that shut most Western markets off to Russian exports. India now gets more than 40% of its oil imports from Russia, according to analysts.

Under Modi’s leadership, India has avoided condemning Russia’s military action in Ukraine while emphasizing the need for a peaceful settlement.

The partnership between Moscow and New Delhi has become fraught, however, as Russia has moved closer to China. Modi notably stayed away from last week’s summit in Kazakhstan of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a security grouping founded by Moscow and Beijing.

Chietigj Bajpaee, senior South Asia research fellow at the U.K.-based Chatham House, said India is increasingly estranged from forums in which Russia and China play a prominent role.

“This is evident in India’s relatively low-key presidency of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization last year, and now the decision by Modi not to attend this year’s summit,” Bajpaee said.

A confrontation in June 2020 along the disputed China-India border dramatically altered their already touchy relationship as rival troops fought with rocks, clubs and fists. At least 20 Indian soldiers and four Chinese soldiers were killed. Tensions have persisted despite talks — and have seeped into how New Delhi looks at Moscow.

“Russia’s relations with China have been a matter of some concern for India in the context of Chinese increased assertiveness in the region,” D. Bala Venkatesh Verma, a former Indian ambassador to Russia, told The Associated Press.

But Modi is expected to seek to continue close relations with Russia, which is also a major defense supplier for India.

With Moscow’s arms industries mostly serving the Russian military in Ukraine, India has been diversifying its defense procurements, buying more from the U.S., Israel, France and Italy.

“Defense cooperation will clearly be a priority area,” Bajpaee said, adding that 60% of India’s military equipment and systems is “still of Russian origin.”

“We’ve seen some delay in the deliveries of spare parts … following the Russian invasion of Ukraine,” he said. “I believe both countries are due to conclude a military logistics agreement, which would pave the way for more defense exchanges.”

Following an arrest warrant issued in 2023 by the International Criminal Court for his actions in Ukraine , Putin’s foreign travel has been sparse in recent years, so Modi’s trip could help the Russian leader boost his clout.

“We kind of see Putin going on a nostalgia trip — you know, he was in Vietnam, he was in North Korea,” said Theresa Fallon, an analyst at the Center for Russia, Europe, Asia Studies. “In my view, he’s trying to demonstrate that he’s not a vassal to China, that he has options, that Russia is still a great power.”

Alexander Gabuev, head of the Carnegie Russia Eurasia Center, said that Putin’s interactions on the world stage show he “is far from isolated” and that Russia is not a country to be discounted.

Trade development also will figure strongly in the talks, particularly intentions to develop a maritime corridor between India’s major port of Chennai and Vladivostok, the gateway to Russia’s Far East.

India-Russia trade has seen a sharp increase, touching close to $65 billion in the 2023-24 financial year, due to strong energy cooperation, Indian Foreign Secretary Vinay Mohan Kwatra told reporters Friday.

Imports from Russia touched $60 billion and exports from India $4 billion in the 2023-24 financial year, Kwatra said. India’s financial year runs from April to March.

He said India was trying to correct the trade imbalance with Russia by increasing its exports. India’s top exports to Russia include drugs and pharmaceutical products, telecom instruments, iron and steel, marine products and machinery.

Its top imports from Russia include crude oil and petroleum products, coal and coke, pearls, precious and semi-precious stones, fertilizer, vegetable oil, gold and silver.

UCR School of Education Announces 2024 Ph.D. Doctoral Graduates

The SOE is proud to announce and celebrate our doctoral graduates who successfully defended their dissertations this academic year. Congratulations to all!

Dissertation Title : For (Y)Our Eyes Only: Latina/o/x Faculty Navigating Tenure Expectations at Hispanic Serving Institutions

Dissertation Abstract : This study explores the experiences of 30Latina/o/x faculty navigating tenure expectations at Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). The author uses qualitative interviews, guided by organizational theory and epistemic exclusion, to identify organizational conditions, policies, and practices that promote or impede the professional development and progression of Latina/o/x faculty in tenure-track appointments.  

The research in this study reveals four main findings that suggest striking parallels between HSIs and Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs). The first finding details participants’ pathways into the professoriate. The second finding illustrates how Latina/o/x faculty experienced uneven levels of support as they navigated ambiguous, contradictory, and vague tenure expectations. The third finding emphasizes how Latina/o/x faculty members’ experiences managing tenure requirements at HSIs were dominated by the salience of being undervalued and disrespected in their contributions to research, teaching, and service while dealing with microaggressions. The fourth finding highlights how Latina/o/x professors coped with epistemic exclusion and shortcomings in their socialization experiences as they undertook the role of tenure-track professors at their respective institutions.  

The findings of this study have direct implications for diversifying the professoriate and improving educational outcomes for Latina/o/x students in higher education. Through these four findings, the author argues that the experiences of Latina/o/x professors in tenure-track appointments continue the history of a lack of institutional support that haunts the Latina/o/x community in higher education. The author introduces the concept of "Confianza" to combat the salience of epistemic exclusion in the organizational socialization of Latina/o/x faculty as a way to enact servingness at HSIs to better serve the Latina/o/x faculty and the Latina/o/x community in higher education.

Chair : Dr. Raquel M. Rall, Chairperson  

Committee Members : Dr. Eddie Comeaux, Dr. Louie F. Rodriguez

Future Plans : I will start a tenure-track position at CSU San Bernardino’s Watson College of Education; I will be part of the Special Education Rehabilitation and Counseling program.  

Reflection : I had a relatively good time at UC Riverside, but I am convinced I could not have completed a doctoral program without my wonderful advisor and dissertation chair, Dr. Raquel M. Rall. Thank you for taking a chance on me and fostering my growth throughout these years. Thank you for exemplifying what leading with excellence and grace truly is. Being your student, Dr. Rall, means answering the call to lead and do good work, but most importantly, work that matters. I hope to continue to answer that call.

I am grateful to my committee members, Dr. Eddie Comeaux and Dr. Louie Rodriguez. Your guidance and leadership were critical to completing my dissertation. Additionally, I express gratitude to my dissertation co-creators, students, SOE faculty and staff, as well as friends and family who supported and cheered for me throughout my educational journey. Nothing is done alone, because of you, I am.

Dissertation Title : Teachers as a Viable Mechanism of Change to Support Students’ Self-Regulation

Dissertation Abstract : Self-regulation is a multidimensional set of skills critical for providing students the foundation for goal-based, self-controlled behavior. These skills are a predictor of students’ academic success and behavioral, social, and emotional well-being. A wealth of research has been dedicated to implementation of evidence-based interventions targeting students’ self-regulation, particularly for students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) whom teachers often report are more stressful to teach. Lack of knowledge about ADHD, low self-efficacy in supporting students with ADHD, and negative student-teacher relationships have been found to contribute to teacher stress. However, there remains a need to address whether teacher factors (e.g., knowledge about ADHD, experience working with students with ADHD) influence the effectiveness of interventions targeting ADHD symptoms. This dissertation is composed of two studies that aimed to examine the teacher-level factors salient for improving school-based interventions designed for students with ADHD. The first study used a small scale, in-depth systematic literature review to investigate intervention studies that concurrently measured student outcomes and teacher-level factors to elucidate teacher-level barriers and facilitators of each of the interventions. The second study evaluated the effectiveness of a teacher training designed to improve pre-service teacher knowledge about ADHD and self-efficacy in their ability to support students with ADHD. Recommendations are made for future directions in school-based ADHD intervention research and implications are discussed for educators and school psychological practice.

Chair : Dr. Stephanie Moore

Committee Members : Dr. Eui Kyung Kim & Dr. Austin Johnson

Future Plans : I am excited to continue my work refining the treatment of psychosocial school-based treatments for students with self-regulatory challenges! I have secured a postdoctoral research position with the Healthy Child and Family Development lab in the Clinical Psychology department at San Diego State University. The research project I will contribute to aims to integrate team-based development and collaboration to enhance an established school-based intervention for children with ADHD. I am delighted to join SDSU and UCSD’s collaborative research network, the Center for Team Effectiveness to Accelerate Evidence-Based Practice Implementation in Children’s Mental Health Services, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.  

Reflection : I joined the School Psychology department at UCR five years ago because it was apparent to me from the very beginning that UCR’s School of Education is a collaborative environment where I could carve a path unique to my interests and career goals. With time, this proved to be very true.  When prospective students ask me about my experience at UCR, the first thing I tell them is that my peers are my people. I tell them that the community of students who belong to SOE is rich with innovative ideas, good advice for getting through graduate school, and a passion for promoting access to quality education in our work. I have so many people to thank for the experiences I’ve gathered at UCR. I’d like to shout out the incredible experiences that SOE and GSA have provided me with by providing me with funds to travel to conferences and seek professional development experiences. I also cannot thank the Academic Preparation, Recruitment and Outreach team enough for supporting my Grad Slam win! I would not have been able to complete my doctoral degree without the support provided by my advisor, Dr. Stephanie Moore, and the encouragement and support provided by my cohort. WE DID IT!

Dissertation Title : ACEs, Education and Space: The Relationship of Adverse Childhood Experiences and Education Across California Counties

Dissertation Abstract : When considering issues of education in the United States of America, the vantage point to understanding inequity in education outcomes changes when the scope of an issue is seen from a systemic perspective compared to individual perspective. Research in public health suggests that childhood adversity is often experienced as a serious threat to a child’s physical or psychological sense of safety and wellbeing. In order to investigate childhood adversity and education over space, theoretical applications and methods focusing on more macro level systemic vantage points were selected for the current study. Addressing the need for more nuanced research on the relationship between ACEs, space and educational outcomes in secondary schools in California, the proposed study contributes by providing a complex data base of expanded ACEs definitions, the creation of an ACE composite variable and then linking them to the educational outcomes of public high school students across California’s 58 counties. The primary techniques utilized in analysis focused on geospatial analysis and linear regression. The constructed ACE composite variable was especially suited to the proposed study given that it was explicitly designed to explore the magnitude of accumulated ACE exposure over a geographic area. Results of the study painted a complex relationship between ACEs, space and education, with particularly interesting findings surrounding the difference between more rural/suburban counties compared to their urban counterparts, including important regional differences between north/central counties and southern counties. Implications on how California can follow suit of other states in the nation to standardize, organize and disseminate statewide ACE data and what kind of policy is feasible within the state to combat the negative population effects of ACE exposure on education outcomes are provided.  

Chair : Dr. Robert Ream  

Committee Members : Dr. Marsha Ing, Dr. Amos Lee  

Future Plans : Continuing to push for education equity in my current position working with LA county foster youth, aiming to gain more leverage in the field of analysis and policy.  

Reflection : I really appreciate UCR as a place where colleagues and great minds come together to push the envelope on social and educational equity. It has been such a pleasure working with great professors and friends to explore my scholarship and sharpen my research skills. I thank my committee, friends and especially my wife, daughter and family for the priceless support through all the difficult hurdles to complete this degree.

Dissertation Title : “Why couldn't I have a different experience that felt free?”: A Critical Narrative Inquiry on the Impacts of Plantation Politics on the Social and Academic Experiences of Black Transgender Students in Higher Education

Dissertation Abstract : This critical narrative inquiry examined the social and academic experiences of 20 Black transgender students currently or formerly enrolled in 4-year colleges and universities in the United States. Employing AntiBlack transness and plantation politics as my analytical framework, I demonstrate the insidious impact of plantation politics on Black transgender students' social and academic lives, which animate in both the processual and structural interactions within the plantation university. By problematizing the presence of plantation politics in both the processual and structural aspects of higher education, my study contributes to empirical understandings of how power dynamics operate within postsecondary institutions and the specific challenges faced by Black transgender students. The narratives shared by Black transgender students highlight the lack of representation, increased vulnerability, and the burden of educating others within the campus community. Furthermore, my research uncovers various issues, such as isolation, rejection, and marginalization, that lead some Black transgender students to abandon their educational pursuits. Despite examples of exclusion, my study also reveals how Black transgender students demonstrate a deep understanding of the expansiveness of their identities, fostering connections and communities within and beyond institutional spaces. Black transgender students create and sustain communities of care that provide vital support, recognition, and understanding, offering a safe and reliable space to be themselves without explanation. Battling institutional pushback and lacking formal support, these communities thrive; students meet one another's basic needs and facilitate their well-being and success. Black transgender students are actively creating spaces of Black trans futurity and transformation, where they (re)claim their life, (re)gain their agency, and embrace nonconformity. I offer practitioners the urgency in their willingness to resist and challenge the status quo, even in the face of significant obstacles, to support Black transgender students. Supporting these students will require disruptive logic, realigning solidarity, and shifting paradigms to meet Black transgender students where they are.

Chair : Dr. Raquel M. Rall

Committee Members : Dr. Rican Vue, Dr. Michael Moses II, Dr. Dylan Rodriguez

Future plans : Re-establishing my grandfather’s nonprofit organization, The Porter Education Foundation.

Reflection : I am unendingly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to work in various capacities while at UCR. From having one of the best advisors, Dr. Rall and being part of a tight group of researchers and colleagues, #TeamRall, thank you!

Dissertation Title : Examining Social-Emotional Development in Black Children: Role of Intrapersonal and Contextual Factors

Dissertation Abstract : Several socio-ecological factors play a critical role in influencing child development in general and social-emotional development in particular. While various studies have shed light on the influence of intrapersonal and external factors on children's social-emotional skills, fewer have comprehensively examined these factors, particularly within the context of middle childhood and specifically among Black children. Furthermore, only a limited number of studies have specifically investigated these associations within racial groups rather than between them. The current study aimed to fill this gap by investigating how child characteristics, interpersonal discrimination experiences, and family dynamics shape social-emotional development in Black children.  

Using a nationally representative database of fifth-grade students, the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-11 (ECLS-K:2011), the current study partially tested the integrative conceptual model of adaptive racial/ethnic and emotion socialization by Dunbar and colleagues (2017). Weighted hierarchical regression analysis was used to examine four of the five main components included in the model. Results indicated both intrapersonal and contextual factors can influence the social-emotional developmental outcomes of Black children. Specifically, these outcomes are determined by Black children’s emotion regulation levels, their parents’ involvement in school activities, parents’ mental well-being, and the quality of the home environment in which the children live and grow. Findings from the proposed study can provide useful information for educators, mental health professionals, and caregivers related to the multiple complex elements in Black children’s lives that may stimulate or inhibit their social- emotional functioning levels. This information can further guide the development and use of culturally relevant intervention strategies and treatment procedures for this population.  

Chair : Austin Johnson

Committee Members : Eui Kyung Kim, Stephanie Moore  

Reflection : I wish to express my deepest gratitude to the incredible mentors I had the privilege of working with at UC Riverside: Dr. Austin Johnson, Dr. Evelyn Vázquez, and Dr. William Erchul. Your unwavering support, guidance, and motivation have been invaluable to my Ph.D. journey, and I aspire to pay forward the kindness you've shown me throughout my professional career. I am profoundly thankful to my dissertation committee members and the SOE faculty, Drs. Kim and Moore, for their steadfast support and encouragement during these past years. Furthermore, I extend my heartfelt thanks to the incredible support system I am blessed with in life—my family and all my friends—whose unwavering support has been the wind beneath my wings. To my cherished family of the heart, Vikrant and Flash, I have only one thing to say: I am because you are.

Finally, I am grateful to the UC Riverside community for embracing me as one of its own and helping me find a home 8,000 miles away from home.

India's Modi meets Putin on first Russia visit since Ukraine offensive

Moscow, Russia – India's newly re-elected prime minister Narendra Modi arrived in Moscow on Monday for a two-day visit that aims to balance the country's longstanding relationship with Russia while courting closer security ties with the West. The trip is Modi's first visit to Moscow since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022. 

Issued on: 08/07/2024 - 22:47

Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew into Moscow on Monday and warmly hugged President Vladimir Putin on a visit that treads a fine line between maintaining a longstanding relationship with Moscow and courting closer Western security ties.

The visit is Modi's first since Russia launched its campaign in Ukraine and since he was returned to power last month as leader of the world's most populous country.

After meeting Moscow's Indian community, Modi had an informal meeting with Putin at his residence at Novo-Ogaryovo outside Moscow , where the leaders drank tea on a terrace, rode in a golf cart together and visited stables.

The Indian leader told Putin it was a "moment of joy" to visit and thanked him for planning "that we chit-chat here this evening".

"Looking forward to our talks tomorrow as well, which will surely go a long way in further cementing the bonds of friendship between India and Russia," Modi later wrote on X, posting a photo of the leaders hugging.

Moscow remains a key supplier of cut-price oil and weapons to India, but the Kremlin 's isolation from the West and blooming friendship with Beijing have impacted its time-honoured partnership with New Delhi.

Western powers have in recent years also cultivated ties with India as a bulwark against China and its growing influence in the Asia-Pacific, while pressuring it to distance itself from Russia .

Modi last visited Russia in 2019 and hosted Putin in New Delhi two years later, weeks before Russia began its offensive against Ukraine.

India has shied away from explicit condemnation of Russia ever since and has abstained on United Nations resolutions censuring Moscow.

But Russia's fight with Ukraine has also had a human cost for India.

Read more India's Modi lands in Russia for first visit since Ukraine war

New Delhi said in February that it was pushing the Kremlin to send back some of its citizens who had signed up for "support jobs" with the Russian military, following reports some were killed after being forced to fight in Ukraine.

The United States on Monday urged Modi to make clear in his talks with Putin that "any resolution to the conflict in Ukraine must... be one that respects the UN Charter with respect to Ukraine's territorial integrity".

Moscow's deepening ties with China have also been a cause for concern.

Washington and the European Union accuse China of selling components and equipment that have strengthened Russia's military industry -- allegations that Beijing denies.

China and India are intense rivals competing for strategic influence across South Asia.

India is part of the so-called Quad grouping with the US, Japan and Australia that positions itself against China's growing assertiveness in the Asia-Pacific region.

Oil and arms

New Delhi and the Kremlin have maintained a close relationship since the Cold War , and Russia was for a long time India's largest arms supplier.

But Ukraine has stretched Russia's arms supplies thin, forcing India to eye other sources for weapons -- including by growing its own defence industry.

Russia's share of Indian imports of arms has shrunk considerably in recent years, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

At the same time, India has become a major buyer of Russian oil, providing a much-needed export market for Moscow after it was cut off from traditional buyers in Europe .

That has drastically reshaped energy ties, with India saving itself billions of dollars while bolstering Moscow's war coffers. 

India's month-on-month imports of Russian crude "increased by eight percent in May, to the highest levels since July 2023", according to commodity tracking data compiled by the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air.

But this has also resulted in India's trade deficit with Russia rising to a little over $57 billion in the past financial year.

From Russia, Modi will travel to Vienna for the first visit to the Austrian capital by an Indian leader since Indira Gandhi in 1983.
