Where are you originally from?
Bay Area, California
Why did you start working at the DC Center?
As a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major, community-based services and solutions have always been at the center of my studies, so the DC Center was the perfect place where I felt I could really work directly with my community. I also really admire the DC Center’s many avenues and services that they provide and the work that they do.
What has been your favorite part about working at the DC Center?
I just started working here, but so far I’d have to say the energy and constant happenings that are always going on at the Center, the space always feels so vibrant and full of people or things going on.
What is your music anthem?
I love listening to indie music, folk music, and pop, and my top three artists would have to be Noah Kahan, San Fermin, and Xana.
What is your favorite part about the LGBTQ+ community?
How diverse and inclusive it is, and how it is so welcoming to such a wide range of people, especially people of color, people with disabilities, etc, which really isn’t something you can find in a lot of spaces.
What is your favorite spot in DC and what do you do there?
I love Foggy Bottom, because that’s where I go to school, and it’s super close to the monuments so it’s always fun to go on a walk at sunset with friends to the monuments.
What is your favorite queer movie?
I love The Miseducation of Cameron Post (but I still think the book is better)!
What color would you paint the White House, given the chance?
A really hot, bold, bright pink!
Who do you look up to in the queer community?
Really any queer elders, especially in my community back home in California, who have done so much for the LGBTQ+ community and have been trailblazers for change and inclusion, even when it was a lot harder to be openly queer back then. They’ve made it possible for younger people like me to proudly celebrate their queerness, which is something I’m very grateful for.
