DEI Contribution/Highlight: During my role as International Co-chair for the Urban Planning Student Association here at Taubman, I helped organize activities that celebrated diversity and cultural differences.  While in school I enjoy sharing my culture with other people and learning from theirs. 

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? These values are what truly allow us to build a better community and learn from each other.
