Why do you think it is important to study diversity and inclusion?  In order to bring about change, we must understand the inequality and lack of inclusivity that exists in our society. Acknowledging the discrimination marginalized communities have experienced and continue to face allows us to be informed on the problems these groups encounter, foster effective solutions, and ultimately develop a fair and just world. 

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA?  As Public Relations/Marketing Chair of Curls U, I promoted my club at the Enormous Activities Fair which allowed me to speak to so many Black Bruins. This was an amazing experience because I connected and related to many of my peers that day and felt socially accepted at UCLA. Being surrounded by my people made me feel comfortable and that I belonged here at such a big institution and inspired me to make an impact while I am here.
