DIVE RI is the first organization on our campus that is providing a safe and comfortable environment in hopes of fostering positive change for the wellbeing of all of those around us, however, not limiting ourselves just to our closest community. No matter the age, gender, or ethnic background. DIVE RI already in its young years has had an impact in the New England area and we hope to expand this energy throughout the nation. I felt frustrated unable to use my platform as a college student to voice my opinion on topics like socioeconomic status, police brutality, institutional racism and many other conflicts within our community and nation at large. However, DIVE has provided me with all the tools I need to think “bigger” in this university and most importantly to pass these tools to others so that they can continue to break down every single barrier on their path to success… that is why I continue to be involved in DIVE RI!
