Anisa Yudawanti is a first year doctoral student in Race, Inequality and Language in Education in Stanford’s Graduate School of Education. Anisa is the proud daughter of Indonesian immigrants and was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin.

Her experience working alongside youth in public schools and community-based organizations is what informs her research interests in liberatory and abolitionist pedagogy, counterspaces built by and for Black and brown youth, and how youth develop a critical racial consciousness.

Anisa's scholarship is supported by the EDGE: Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education Fellowship through the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education and the Emerging Scholars Fellowship through the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity.
