What motivates you to be a changemaker in your community?

I’m motivated to be a changemaker in my community by the experiences of my family and loved ones, who have taught me that through representation, anyone can drive a movement for greater opportunity. I have learned to approach social justice through storytelling and giving agency to experiences in the public policy sector, and I am grateful for the support of my mentors and close colleagues. Learning from those who have been doing this work for a long time and feeling accepted in those conversations is what continues to keep me invested.

My capstone:

The proposal establishes post-secondary drug education training and accessible resources on campus for those who are victims of involuntary drug consumption and those suffering from drug misuse by:
  • Integrating education on drug-assisted sexual assault within the mandatory sexual assault trainings already provided for CA higher education institutions, starting at UC Berkeley.

  • Ensuring that campus health centers offer flumazenil or other adjacent opioid antagonists in cases of Rohypnol overdoses on campus (Rohypnol being one of the most commonly used spiking drugs).
