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

I think studying diversity and inclusion is especially important with all the ongoing conflict taking place in certain parts of the world, and we need to remember to always understand that all of us are human and that we should always have each other's best interest in mind. The more we study our differences, the more we learn how to avoid discrimination in society and how to be inclusive.

Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA?

I think whenever the students all engage in different well-known UCLA traditions together, it makes me feel pretty connected to everybody else. For example, the midnight yell every day during finals week is something that, while it is small, helps me bond with my fellow Bruins every quarter and makes me feel like a part of a larger community here.
