Major: Gender Studies & Sociology

I am motivated by the activists and organizers throughout the world that have so much passion and love for their communities. I am also motivated by social change and work that will help create a better world. I love the quote by Angela Davis, “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change, I am changing the things I cannot accept.”

I am passionate about social justice and humxn liberation for marginalized people. I want to be able to create spaces for marginalized folx to feel a sense of solidarity, comradery, and community, especially when navigating spaces that are systemically racist, homophobic, transphobic or harbor discrimination because of the hostile political climate fo the state and nation.
