Hi y'all! My name is Lucas Lawrence, I use he/him pronouns and I'm a junior from Long Island, New York. I declared a major in Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies because I wanted an academic framework for what I was thinking about in my personal life. Some of my favorite courses, such as Transgender Cultural Studies, Intro to Queer Studies and Sexual Diversity and Health, have given me this framework while also pushing me to think more critically about aspects of my identity where I hold privilege. Outside of the classroom, I spend my time working at the Women's Community Center to continue interrogating gender expectations and pushing for equity. I also work at the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking as a writing and oral communication tutor, where I help other students acknowledge how their identities form their biases and style for writing and speaking. I have office hours at the Women's Community Center and the Hume Center if you ever wanted to drop by, but if you'd like to schedule something, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org -- I would love to chat!
Hello! My name is Michela Rodriguez, I use she/her pronouns, and I am a senior from Poway, CA. I first encountered FGSS during winter quarter of my frosh year when I took Estelle Freedman's IntroSem, "The Feminist Critique." It was the first time at Stanford that I felt fully engaged in a class and invigorated by the material. Sophomore year, I enrolled in "FemGen 101" and realized I would never get tired of reading books or having conversations about these themes. Since then, some of my favorite classes within the major have been "Sexual Violence in America," "Transgender Cultural Studies," and "Language as a Political Tool." The people in the FGSS department strive to make each major, minor, and honors student feel supported and seen. You can find me at any number of student theater productions on campus, hanging out with my residents in EastFlo, or raving about the Thai food served at an FGSS lunch or dinner. You can also email me at email@example.com.
