"This fund allows students to have opportunities to participate in experiences that are both enriching and life-changing. Because of the Champions of Diveristy Fund, I have been able to attend the National Student Leadership and Diversity Convention in New York City and the Out for Work Conference in Washington D.C. Both of these opportunities have opened doors for me by establishing connections with people across the country and learning about being a strong leader, ally, and facilitator. Both of these conferences helped me to be comfortable with my identity and use my talents to inspire others."
