I’m Anisa Dunkley, your 2018-2019 Diversity and Inclusion Senator! I’m a transfer student from the Bay Area and this will be my second year as an otter, fourth year of college. I’m studying Human Development and Family Studies, as well as Psychology. I chose these fields because, they help me make sense out of my passion, people. I love helping and meeting people! I joined Associated Students because I wanted to be a voice, and a connection for underrepresented students on campus. My goal is to help enhance and create communities for us on campus. I’m hoping to put on a variety of fun and expressive events throughout the year that intrigue different communities on campus to come together. I look forward to learning more about our otter community and serving my underrepresented peers!
