"I am a second-year undergraduate majoring in Economics.  During the 2018 fall semester, I enrolled in the City Planning 13B: Community and Economic Development course because I was interested in the subject matter, which integrated several areas, such as public policy. After exploring different topics, our discussion on ways that private companies can contribute to low-income communities captured my interest in the growing role of businesses and their relationship with the communities in need. Inspired by my learning experience, I am pursuing a Global Urban Humanities Certificate."

English

Introduction to Visual Thinking, ART 8

As a first-generation Latino transfer student, Daniel Olea has demonstrated his tenacious nature by recently earning his Bachelors in English, completing a minor in Education, and receiving the Global Urban Humanities certificate, all while pursuing a career in music as a DJ. With creativity at his core, the self-proclaimed multipotentialite, asserts that "while English ranges from the feasible to the more abstract, harnessing the ability to read and write allows us the opportunity to adapt and grow." In this process, he has recognized the many interdisciplinary aspects of his field and for that reason wishes to not be bound to a single discipline; hence, why he continuously explores everything and anything related to the world.

Caitlyn Cline, English

Kaitlyn Corr, American Studies, Gender and Women Studies Minor

Kim Do, Conservation and Resource Studies

Menat El Attma, English

"Having emigrated from Egypt to the United States in November of 2005, I am now a third-year undergraduate student studying English Literature. The city landscape, or cityscape if you will, is an abstract canvas that draws upon varying symbolisms and meanings associated with homeplace and home-making, especially during these contemporary times. I believe to understand the role of cityscapes as a space of (communal) life, performance, and choice, it is critical to re-examine this space and the processes that produced it. Some are out of necessity while others are of out of a different imaginative design and intention. Personally, I am invested in a myriad of art forms because it is necessarily through Art that we can meaningfully study history, religion, science, language, ourselves and each other."
