Here is the incredibly motivating and inspiring insights about her life at SF State:

“I was a part of Cheer at San Francisco State for 3 years and served as the President and Captain for the last two years. My first year, I joined not knowing anything about the program, and quite frankly, I didn’t really care. I just wanted to show-off my skills. That year, my head coach and captain quit the team. People were getting kicked off and others were quitting. We went from a team of 20 to a team of 5. It was disastrous and I kept telling myself … Read More »

SF State Black Student Union

The SF State Black Student Union is dedicated to unifying, uplifting and empowering black people on and off campus through cultural, political, social and informational events.
SF State’s Black Student Union, the first BSU in the country, led the famous student strike of 1968 where student protestors demanding equal access to higher education clashed with police for five months.
The strike, the longest in U.S. history, resulted in the creation of the nation’s first Ethnic Studies department and helped define SF State’s core values of diversity and equality.
Today, the SF State BSU aims to educate and empower black leaders to continue the struggle for equality by reaching out to the community.
Club members are active volunteers, engaged with their community and involved in programs like 100% College Prep, which works with low income youth to help prepare them for college.
