Activist, Safe, Supportive, Empowering, Inclusive
Why are you proud to be the Director at the GSEC?
I am proud to be the director at the GSEC because I have the honor of working with 19 other inspirational activists on a daily basis. I love helping interns discover their identities as activists! Together, we are able to make our campus more safe and inclusive. I know that we are making sustainable change through our events, poster campaigns, and simply our presence on our campus and in our community.
Why should students become involved with GSEC?
The GSEC internship provides students with a place on campus to call home, a community of like-minded individuals, and an opportunity for an immense amount of personal growth. I got involved with the GSEC during my sophomore year and I haven’t left yet! GSEC interns enjoy the experience of collaborating and networking with other activists on campus and in the community while working in our interactive office. We offer a diverse array of responsibilities and positions, allowing students to tailor their interests to office tasks in order to maximize their internship experience and become knowledgeable activists. The GSEC empowers all interns to be the best version of themselves by encouraging them to use inclusive language, engage in daily activism, and increase their academic knowledge about diversity and systems of power through the MCGS 489 internship seminar.
