Samantha Robins, Chairwoman


Hello! My name is Samantha Robins, but I go by Sam. I’m a 4th year student at UWB and I’m majoring in Community Psychology.

Ada Maldon, Arts & Awareness Programmer


Hi everyone ! My name is Kristina Maldonado. My preferred name is Ada, I use she/her/hers pronouns. I'm a proud biracial Latinx Puerto Rican student of Community Psychology and American Ethnic Studies. A fun fact about me is that my name, Ada, was given to me by my Abuelita, it means Fairy in Spanish. My friends say the name is fitting because I am such a social butterfly. This year I'm looking forward to creating fun and educational events aimed at creating safe and equitable spaces for marginalized groups to speak their truth and feel part of the UWB community.

I am Latinx born in Buenos Aires, Argentina who was brought to the United States at the age of 6 months.I am a loud and proud Feminist because "Feminism is the radical notion that women are people".
