Peer Adviser, Sofia Casquejo-Johnston

About Me:

I am very involved with Oakes student life as a Neighborhood Assistant for Bayit Wiesel, one of the co-leads for the Practical Activism Conference, and the co-founder/facilitator for EQUAL, the Oakes queer peer support group. Additionally, I am a peer advisor in the Sociology department. As one of your six academic peer advisors, I plan on making the language of the university accessible to everyone. The language this university was written in was not meant for everyone and I am here to help tear down that barrier for students who are like and unlike myself. I want to help everyone who comes through the doors of the academic office and provide them with the support and resources that they need.
