Gabriela Wale Soto
I am a MA in Applied Linguistics student at UCL, developing my interest in understanding the role of language in the creation and perpetuation of social inequalities. Currently completing my research project in investigating university students’ lived experience of the promise of employability and success. Under the rationale of neoliberalism, I problematise the marketisation of the idea of whiteness and its impact in reproducing racial inequalities. Seeking to continue transforming these ideas further in a PhD project.
I trained in Education and History with a BA from University of Aberystwyth and subsequently spent 5 years as a Modern Foreign Languages teacher in a secondary school in Oxford, specializing in Spanish and French.
