In 2012, only a sophomore at the time, I founded the V High School Gay-Straight Alliance. In 2014, now having entered college, I served as the webmaster of Valparaiso University’s LGBTQ alliance. Then was inducted as co-president only one year later.

Now, during my time as professor at UCR, I continue to work closely with their CORE program to advocate for the LGBTQ students and the community.
