I am a Gender and Women’s studies major, I am thrilled to join this group of amazing people this year as a new member. The ability to understand the world through a feminist/queer lens has given me the power to critically think the structures that shape life as we know it. I have the ability to push against these structures in a meaningful way, with the intention to spark change for marginalized individuals.
