    Hello! I'm a 4th-year studying Public Health Sciences. I joined SOAR because I want to empower historically marginalized communities on campus to find their voices and help navigate the resources available to them. Outside of SOAR, I love to take naps and binge shows!

    Hi! I’m a 3rd year Education Science student. I enjoy going to the beach with friends and trying different crepe places. I joined SOAR because I wanted to be part of a team that cares and helps communities that are underrepresented through their college journey.

    Hi there guys! I’m Lina, a 3rd year Political Science major here at UCI. I enjoy reading romance novels or empowering nonfiction from authors like Steve Leder. I’m always open to book suggestions! I love putting on my Hokas and going for long walks on any trail I can find and I love spending time with my friends or my cat, Basil. I’m so excited to be working with SOAR so I can really be a part of a community on campus.
