Nakia is a Senior here at Cal. She is an African American studies major with a minor in education. She not only is a Facilitator for this semester but she is also a Theme Program Assistant (TPA) for the African American Theme Program in unit 1. She is from the most beautiful city in the world San Diego, where the suns always shining. In her spare time she loves to cook, and read amazing books. She is also a huge fan of crop tops and tattoos. In fact, she's probably getting a tattoo while wearing the most belly revealing crop top at this very moment. If she’s not being loud and making jokes she usually can be found in her room, watching movies or on tumblr (yes, she has a little bit of an addiction). Some fun facts about this amazing gal: She has a twin sister and is double jointed.
Rasa is a fourth year, Social Welfare major at Cal and a lover of book, prints, and bikes.
| || Brenda|
Brenda is a senior at Berkeley and is majoring in English.
She is infatuated with literature by Gloria Anzaldua and
literature that deconstructs perspectives on binaries, gender representation
and mental health. Her interests include: writing, reading, photography, loving
and quoting Mean Girls or Disney movies on a daily basis. Aside from that, she
is fluid, quirky, and hella passionate. She is devoted to becoming a positive
and influential leader for people of color in misrepresented communities. She
stands for those that have not found their “inner voices”, the underprivileged
youth, the right to love differently, and for her untamed identity. This is her third and last semester facilitating and she cannot wait to be inspired by all of the beautiful
things that y’all have to say.
This is Lilah's second semester facilitating FemSex. A fourth
year Forestry and Geography double major, Lilah spends a lot of time outside
and looking at maps. Lilah's accomplishments include being an excellent
parallel parker, knowing the secrets to opening very tightly-sealed jars, and
delivering a ~killer~ speech at South Eugene High School's 2011 graduation
ceremony. Lilah doesn't like to think too far in advance, but their near-future
goals include writing a thesis on witchcraft, special-ordering a whole pastrami
from Katz's Deli in NYC, and finding a job at a bakery to fuel their addiction
to wheat and butter. Lilah isn't gluten free - rather, they're a strong
proponent of free gluten. #freegluten
Karla is a third year at Cal and is double majoring in Political Science and
Chicano Studies and is minoring in African American Studies. This will be her
first year facilitating FemSex and couldn't be more excited! In her free time she
likes to find quiet spaces to do yoga and meditate or read a good book. She has
a passion for fighting for people's rights and equality, through education and
love. She loves chocolate anything and everything and can never say no to a cup
of tea accompanied with good conversation.
Ariel or Ale
(in spanish, not like the mermaid) is a first generation college student. They also
like to be called Ale (not the alcoholic drink). When not pretending to work
hard on his English/Sociology double major, he likes to hang around until
someone offers him food. They once took a nap in a tree and are extremely proud
that they did not fall. Also, they hella love chile. La comida sabe major with
the flavors of home.
Nidhi is a work in progress. Above all, she loves sleeping in on Saturday mornings so she can think about life and happiness. This is her first year facilitating and she is incredibly excited to mess up so she can do a better job later. And if you absolutely must know the technical details, Nidhi is a junior studying Chemistry with a minor in Global Poverty and Practice. She was born and raised in the Bay Area. And I hope you think she’s really cool.
Holly is a fourth year student majoring in English. While
this is far from a comprehensive list of Holly's interests, currently some of
their interests include exploring different creative writing mediums, lurking
on Twitter and Instagram, worshipping critical feminist theorists like bell
hooks, Dean Spade, and Donna Haraway, using emojis to make better puns, and
having conversations about all these topics.
| || Ozi|
Hey lovelies! Ozichi, also known as Ozi around campus, is a third year at
Cal and is double majoring in Comparative Literature and Ethnic Studies. When
she has free time, she loves to actively pursue her dream of becoming a
supermodel, read, eat, write, draw, daydream, and hang out whether it be alone
or with friends at new places with gorgeous views. She has a love for all
things beautiful such as poetry, photography, nature, or city nights and also
loves to get to know people on a deeper, intimate level (conversations are just
so much better that way). This is her third semester as a FemSex facilitator
and she is extremely excited to once again be a part of this
amazing space where critical, insightful, as well as respectful discussions can
