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

This world belongs to everybody, not just the majority population. People shouldn’t be ignored because of their identity. By studying diversity and inclusion, we can understand people from various cultural backgrounds and help them to be seen and heard.

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA? 

The first bonding night with my Greek and American roommates made me feel socially connected. It was amazing to feel deeply connected with people from different cultural backgrounds. This experience showed me that UCLA truly is a warm and inclusive community to that I belong.
