    WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE HAMLINE UNIVERISTY NCORE NETWORK?
    I decided to participate in NCORE to enhance my personal and professional development in diversity, and to improve my skills as a facilitator and supporter of social justice.

    WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NCORE MEMORY or SESSION?
    I enjoyed the team reflection meetings we had every evening. We had great discussions about self identity and personal growth, and everyone was willing to share of themselves.

    WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE?
    NCORE has given me a renewed confidence in my vision of multicultural and anti-racist beliefs that inspire me to continue my work. It gives me great joy to know that anti-racism great work is being done across the nation..

    WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL GOALS FOR THIS ACADEMIC YEAR?
    My goal in the upcoming year is to facilitate conversations and activities around diversity and anti-racism topics. I also want to support the ethnic student groups to think beyond themselves to look to be more inclusive and help them learn to work with each other.
