UC Irvine - Lucid is a new online journal for first-gen students to share their experiences and explore their identities. Its writers are all first-generation UCI undergraduates, most of whom have never been published before – many don’t even want to write for a living. What they have are powerful stories and a drive to tell them to the world. In a medical anthropology essay, “My Mother’s Migraines”, senior Mariel Calva describes her mother’s silent battle and how she eases her suffering while lacking healthcare. But the essay is only a small part of a larger feature: an interview with Calva, in which she reveals the sense of empowerment she developed during the writing process. Woven throughout the journal and featured prominently on the cover is sophomore Mayra Sierra’s artwork.
