What People Are Saying About Daisy Hernandez:
“… people absolutely loved her, and that they are still talking about her lecture, and how it has influenced their thinking. I think that's pretty wonderful feedback. The great thing is we're getting that feedback from a wide range of folk: young, middle-aged, white, people of color, men and women. So it's safe to say that Daisy was a hit in Minnesota!” – University of Minnesota
“Daisy was FABULOUS! ...such a delight to have speak, she truly showed her interest, care, and knowledge about her topic. ...we all took something very powerful from it--three of my own professors scribbled notes with the vigor of a student cramming day before finals. It was beautiful!” – Sonoma State University
“It was great! The class visit was wonderful too! Daisy is awesome! We were very happy!” – Western Kentucky University
