Society for Research on Adolescence’s Emerging Scholar Spotlight for February, Dr. Nkemka Anyiwo

I incredibly excited to have been featured as the Society for Research of Adolescence’s Emerging Scholar Spotlight for February 2020. In this feature, I discuss my academic journey and give tips to emerging scholars.

Advice For Emerging Scholars

  • Be sure that your work is not disconnected from the people who you study. Remember that youth and families are experts of their lived experiences. Approach your work with humility, seeking to learn and understand through the data and through conversations with communities. Your work has the ability to shape narratives and create tangible change, but it must reach the people who need it the most.
  • Remember that your research objectives should drive your methods. Focus on strengthening your methodological toolbelt to ensure that you have a broad arsenal to draw from.
