Things are changing rapidly in the Xavier University campus in ways that the city has never seen before. Over the last couple of years, Xavier’s big push has been inclusion, especially within the extended communities, minorities, and nationwide. I feel this will benefit the university as a whole and I’m excited about what the future holds for everyone at Xavier University.

Publisher's Note

We are beyond excited to feature Amanda Shaw on our June cover!

We love everything Amanda represents. Not many people are aware of her Latin heritage, and it’s hard to know about it from seeing her performances on stage and to see her love and amazing showcase of Louisiana’s music. So, it’s hard to imagine someone who is such a Louisiana icon grew up partaking in Guatemalan cultural traditions.

Featuring Amanda Shaw on Viva NOLA is a dream come true! It is individuals like her who represent exactly what we are trying to convey.

We are part of and love Louisiana. We enjoy its culture while also embracing our Latin heritage. We utilize our talents and skills to contribute to making our home a better place, and we serve as ambassadors of this region wherever we go.

This is what VIVA NOLA Magazine celebrates--a connection of cultures and communities. And who better than Amanda Shaw to perfectly tell the story of many of us who call New Orleans and Louisiana home.

Thank you, Amanda for opening your heart and sharing your story with us. You definitely make us proud!
