Why did you become an Ambassador?

I became an ambassador because I wanted to help reduce disease transmission and prevent another sudden shift to fully online-learning.

Favorite socially distanced activity?

My favorite socially distanced activity is Zoom movie nights!

What are some ways you're working to keep our campus community healthy and safe?

Nearly every club I am a part of is doing everything virtually this semester to ensure minimal contact!

Why do you wear a mask?

I wear a mask because I want to minimize the spread of COVID-19 to systematically oppressed communities who are at higher risk.

What's one piece of advice you'd give to everyone during this COVID-19 pandemic?

One piece of advice I would give to everyone: Recognize that social inequalities shape health outcomes! So please, let us all do our parts!
