Meet a DA: Inshira Din ’20

The Thrill spotlights a Discrimination Advisor regularly to raise awareness about the resources available to students on campus in relation to issues of discrimination.  They have weekly Office Hours they announce via email and can also be reached at any time using this form. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help. Today, we’re featuring Inshira Din ’20.

My favorite Disney character is Sebastian from the little mermaid.

Why did you become a DA?

I became a DA because I felt like given the opportunity, it was important to me as one of not too many women of color, to be available as a resource to make sure that everyone on campus felt comfortable, safe, and validated in any concerns they have or through any difficulties they may encounter.
