Why do you think it is important to study diversity and inclusion?
It is important to study diversity and inclusion to take into consideration the wide range of thoughts and experiences that exists in our society. Specifically, people from diverse backgrounds offer new perspectives that can help to make research and education more comprehensive/representative for people of all backgrounds.
Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA?
The Word is an open mic and spoken word event held each week in Kerckhoff Hall. My first time going to this event, I was moved by the ways that UCLA students unapologetically expressed themselves through poetry and art. In this space I felt connected to the experiences of these students and was compelled to get involved in arts and activism at UCLA.
