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

Everyone has unique experiences and different intersections of identities, and from the acknowledgment of the value of each perspective, we can strive towards a world that is more mindful of how we create spaces and systems where every person can thrive. I believe that through the study of diversity and inclusion we can further understand the impact that the lack of or the presence of diversity can have on the individual and societal levels.

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA:

Being a part of the Mental Health Fair with Active Minds during my first quarter at UCLA gave me a sense of belonging and purpose. I was able to participate in the planning process and interact with other students and visitors about mental health and its importance in our lives. It was a great experience and it gave me an appreciation of all the hard work that goes into the various events held on campus.
