I am a second-year ITM major who plans to specialize in Software Development. You may be wondering why I decided to join the UNITE executive board. Well, let me tell you. Unfortunately, my Freshman year experience wasn't that great. I knew it was because of who I am. I am a Black woman, and there are not many of us here. Because of that, people never really put forth the effort to know and understand me. I was often overlooked and expected to be "gone" before the semester was over. But guess what? I'm still here. Why? Because I know I'm destined for greatness and I want to let you know that you are too. We are a family, but we struggle to hear one another. I wanted a solution to all of this and that’s why I joined UNITE. UNITE is here to shine empathy and understanding to the diverse groups here at IIT. We are here to build a community where no one is closed-minded to each other's struggles. We aim to create an environment where people feel welcomed and supported REGARDLESS of who they are. Instead of wishing for change, we ARE the change. It’s only up from here. And now for our iconic slogan, “Let’s change IIT one heart at a time!”
