OMA Stories

Images can be a powerful tool to bring exposure to bodies and identities that are othered. Everyday we are exposed to dominate narratives through the lens of those who hold power. #OMAstories is a platform that will be used as an opportunity to highlight the beauty, strength, resilience, and diversity of the students we serve via Instagram. Feel free to follow our Instagram account at su_oma for all the latest news, updates and stories about our outstanding students.
