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

It is important to study diversity and inclusion because it helps us learn about ourselves and the world around us. More importantly, it helps us highlight the racial divide, as well as the responsibility we have as individuals to foster a safe space and address the inequities affecting vulnerable communities.

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA?

Taking a service learning course as a part of my Spanish major has truly been rewarding; I completed a volunteer service with San Fernando Refugee Children's Center in which I virtually connected with low-income families in San Fernando and provided children with a comfortable platform to participate and engage with others during the pandemic.
