I’m majoring in International Relations with the hope of working for an NGO dealing with LGBT issues in the future. My concentration is in Contemporary Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies and I absolutely love it! The International Relations department is beyond amazing about offering support to anyone interested in civil liberties and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here.
In my spare time, I try to stay as busy as I can. I work in the Office of LGBT Awareness, I am a facilitator for Common Ground (a student-led diversity retreat), I work with International Student Services (I am an International Orientation Assistant), I run the gay men’s break-out group The League, I’m part of the Bucknell Public Interest Program, and do small projects here and there.
FLAG&BT is one of my favorite organizations on campus. I feel like the members of our alliance are one of the most open-minded, out-going and funny people on campus. Not one meeting goes by without everyone there laughing whole-heartedly and enjoying each other’s company. Over the last year, FLAG&BT has grown in numbers and I truly hope that anyone who is interested in joining a fun group of open-minded people will do so. You don’t have to be gay, straight, bi, trans, or even straight for that matter. At FLAG&BT we never ask anyone to disclose their sexual identity unless they wish to do so. If you have any questions about FLAG&BT, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you at a meeting soon! J
