Monday morning means it’s time for #hampstudents rock! 
Meet Joseph, he rocks!! Joseph studies learning with play and how play can build and strengthen relationships and entire communities. 
This summer Joseph received funding from the Culture Brain and Development (CBD) program to attend the 67th IJA or international Juggling association festival. Being able to experience the festival first hand gave Joseph a good look at the particular play community at IJA. All the attendees of IJA are part of very many communities. For Joseph it is amazing when individuals come together for this  week and form one giant juggling community. During this time jugglers from around the world come to learn from each other, compete with each other, play with each other and inevitably create with each other. 
Joseph “had a blast” at the 67th IJA and is inspired to figure out how to bring the beauty of playfulness to more people.

Meet Xavier A. Torres de Janon F12, he rocks.
During this summer, Xavier got the chance to be an intern for the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights through Hampshire’s Civil Liberty and Public Policy program (http://clpp.hampshire.edu) and their Reproductive Rights and Activist Service Corps Internship (RRASC) program. Located in Oakland, CA, Xavier worked on developing an online resource for advocacy against border militarization (http://www.nnirr.org/drupal/campaign-border-justice). He also monitored news to keep NNIRR’s social media and website updated, as well as other typical intern tasks. At Hampshire, Xavier is studying the Arab and Latin American identities, focusing on the oppression embedded in them, and is growing more interested in the effect immigration and forced displacement has in them. Working at NNIRR broadened Xavier’s scope and knowledge of immigration policy, enforcement, and violence against the two identities he has been studying.
The picture is in San Francisco, with a high school friend of Xavier’s from Ecuador who goes to school there.
