Why do you think it is important to study diversity and inclusion? 

It’s important to study diversity and inclusion because it helps analyze what a community is and how it affects each member. After all, we are not all identical. The probability of finding significance with inclusion, whether interventions or observations, can stand as a framework to enrich communities everywhere.

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA? 

A time I felt socially connected to UCLA was with the first friendships I made with my floormates. As a transfer student, I was nervous about going to a brand new environment, and experiencing so many firsts with them made me feel connected to UCLA and the people there.
