Pronouns: she/her

Leila is a first-generation college student and proud product of community college. She graduated from the College of San Mateo with her associate degrees in Ethnic Studies, Political Science, and Social Sciences, and is a recent transfer majoring in CSRE. Born and raised on occupied Muwekma Ohlone land in the Bay Area, Leila has ancestral ties to the Kingdom of Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, and France. These roots inform her commitment as a scholar, activist, and poet striving towards the collective liberation of all marginalized communities. Leila hopes to bridge her roles as Pacific Islander Student Association Co-Vice President, ASSU ex-officio transfer rep, and CSRE Liasion to strengthen inter-community coalition building and foster campus-wide critical consciousness.
