She majors in Anthropology and Economics. Last year, as a Levitt Research Grant Recipient, she researched the issue of diversity in predominantly White colleges with the support of Professor Chaise LaDousa and Chenyu Wang. Specifically, she looked at how opportunity program training could accentuate the sense of lack among historically underprivileged students instead of empowering them. The questions she would like to leave you to ponder is what does “diversity” mean in the context of a predominantly White institute? To whom “diversity” serves? How should people who are considered as "diverse" position themselves in the context of a PWI?
