Once the time came when we were revealed to our LEAD team for my sophomore year, I was so happy to be told I was in the D.I.S. LEAD team. This team was my number one choice because one thing I am very passionate about is equality.
We would meet as a team and discuss the different heritage months while celebrating and educating ourselves on different people, including their backgrounds and culture. The range of learning would be anything from National Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month, National Disability Employment Awareness Month, National Italian American Heritage Month, National American Indian Heritage Month, African American History Month, National Women’s History Month, Irish-American Heritage Month, and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
With this lead team, I was fortunate enough to attend two different speakers along with getting a presentation on cultural dances. I put this LEAD team as my number one choice again in the Fall and I hope to gain more knowledge and understanding within it. I also would love to form friendships and bonds with others who are passionate about diversity on campus and volunteer more of my time within it.
