This year, Chelsea is a Junior in the School of Foreign Service studying Culture and Politics. Quite a ways from her home in Illinois, Chelsea tries her best to foster welcoming communities on campus. This year Chelsea is a LEAD facilitator, YLEAD peer leader, and a resident of Casa Latina. When she is not drinking too much coffee or browsing soundcloud for music to play on her WGTB radio show, she can be found out on a run or asking strangers if she can pet their dogs. As an intern she hopes to continue her loving relationship with CMEA , be a welcoming face for flustered students, and spread her passion for intercultural dialogue and solidarity.
