Bianca loves interacting with and meeting new students, faculty and staff. Specifically, she enjoys diversity work because she knows how hard it can be acclimating to places and spaces that are foreign to you. She hopes that her work and the work of her colleagues will progress the nation towards authentic inclusivity. On a personal note, she like to travel, dance, and spin/cycle.

Kevin: Wednesdays, 1-2 p.m.

For Kevin, working with and for other students is energizing and immeasurably rewarding. Compassion is a value he cultivates through this work; understanding the unique needs of individual students and promoting their personal and academic advancement in spite of adversity is the best possible way he can conceive of using his time and effort. In his spare time, he likes getting into deep conversations with colleagues, who are also his closest friends - it's usually about food, or sneakers.

Everyone has a story and Shernell is committed to ensuring that - at Carnegie Mellon - we are fostering environments for authentic and meaningful exchange. She believes that diversity is meaningful exchange and meaningful exchanges can inspire and empower action toward social change. In moments of quiet mindfulness, you will either find Shernell trying to physically plant something in the local community garden, planting seeds of change and activism in the local community through her various non-profit board affiliations, or planning her next travel adventure.
