Warrior Princess

Co-presented with the Suffolk University Seminar for Freshman

As a 20-year veteran Navy SEAL, Christopher Beck was hailed as a hero, serving on thirteen deployments and ultimately earning a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. But Chris’s biggest battle was coming to terms with the fact that she was really a woman. Now known as Kristin, Beck opens up about her life in a field of masculinity while struggling to acknowledge and accept her true gender. Suffolk English Professor Elif Armbruster helps Beck present her true story, a profile of finding the courage to be herself.

Thursday, December 4, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
