I hope everyone has been enjoying this warm weather as much as I have! This week I was able to sit outside on my front lawn to do homework for the first time in months! It was truly a beautiful experience! I’m sure a lot of you can agree with me when I say I’ve definitely missed that vitamin D on my skin! To make things more beautiful… Warm weather means it’s time for spring and spring means many events with the GAP ready for you all to attend! YAY! I will continue to update details of each event as they come, so be ready to mark your calendars! For now, please consider attending the following events coming up:
- February 27th at 12:00pm-4:00pm in the GAP office
- Come check out our office and get to know our advocates! This would also be a perfect opportunity to get involved and apply to be an advocate with us! We would love to see you all attend!
- March is also National Women’s History Month!
More events will be happening in March and April, but we hope to see you all at the Open House! It’s going to be a good time! Additionally, Fliers and emails will be sent out shortly, but if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and let either Hailey Bird or I know!
Finally, as promised, I would like to introduce you all to our first Gender Advocate of the week: KERRY WORLEY!
When she isn’t busy smashing the patriarchy, Kerry is working towards her degree in Social Work with a minor in Gender Studies. Her future goals are to work for the state, but her dream job is to run her own non-profit organization. Kerry got involved with the GAP because she loves that the organization provides a safe place for anybody on campus despite gender, sexual orientation, or any other stigma that might prevent a student from feeling comfortable within their own school/home environment. She also enjoys that GAP partner’s up with Voices of Hope and the amazing Lindsay which is such an amazing organization that she is proud to represent on campus. Her goal in GAP is to help inform people about how many problems are present on this campus regarding sex and gender and raise awareness to the action we all must take to be an inclusive community. Some extra fun facts about Kerry: her favorite netflix show to binge watch is currently Shameless, but overall New girl is one for the win because Zooey Deschanel is her spirit animal. If she could be any food item, she would be an avocado!Keep an eye out for later this week as a special post will be uploaded sharing the exciting trip and you all will be receiving the insight scoop!
