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

It is essential to study diversity and inclusion due to today's atmosphere; with the rise and emphasis on diversity within the workplace or academia, it is vital to research why less diversity is happening in particular locations. Furthermore, the benefits of diversity and inclusion are substantial; it allows for new and innovative opinions that can grow and improve our community.  

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA?

A time I felt socially connected to UCLA was when I was living at the Holly Transfer dorms in my third year. Being in Holly, where my floormates and students were transfer students, allowed me to be in a community where students had one commonality. It was restorative to talk to fellow transfer students about the hardships and complications of transferring to UCLA.
