Gloria Anzaldúa's literary impact on culture and community lives on. 

Noreen Rivera, an associate professor for the department of literature and cultural studies at UTRGV said she has been studying Anzaldúa's work for about 15 years and finds her still relatable.

"Anzaldúa wants us to recognize ourselves, our true selves for who we are and that human diversity and potential that we have to put our best foot forward and our valley a better place," Rivera said.
