In this narrative-based response essay, my goal is to contribute to discussions of merit and diversity while highlighting the international/queer scholar perspective. I present my experiences in US higher education and communication studies. In particular, I narrate lived experiences that were shaped or impacted by whiteness and US-centric ideals about merit and scholarship. Hence, I present a critique of the discipline from an international scholar perspective.
