I’m super excited to serve as one of the interns this year and work on developing community within the WCC. In my free time I love sewing clothes, thrifting, sitting in coffee shops, and caring for my plant babies. I’m considering majoring in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, but I’m generally interested in all things social science. I love to explore the intersection of people’s multifaceted identities and social justice movements, and I’m excited to learn more about this with the WCC.

Nitara Connally, Feminist Narratives Program Intern
Hi! My name is Nitara and I’m a current sophomore studying English Literature and Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity! At the WCC, I work under my wonderful mentor, Mikah, on the Feminist Narratives team, as I am incredibly passionate about storytelling, and the usage of it to explore historically excluded narratives. My goal at the WCC is to uplift the voices of Black gender marginalized people, and to make space for our stories in a canon that desperately tries to silence us. Because of this, I spend a lot of my time researching misogynoir and anti-Blackness so that I can better serve my communities and radically imagine a liberated future that serves us all, rather than the select few. Outside of the WCC, I love reading, writing, spending time with my friends, and making Spotify playlists!
Sonya Googins, Collective Liberation Series and ECL Intern
Hello! My name is Sonya and I use she/her pronouns, and I am an intern for the Collective Liberation and ECL program. I am from San Diego, California and am a sophomore hoping to major in International Relations and minor in Human Biology. My passions for sexual health education and services, social justice, and international collaboration in the face of global issues have driven me to become a part of spaces where I can explore these interests and become actively involved in advancing important movements alongside equally motivated people. This is what has brought me to the WCC, and to the Sexual Health Peer Resource Center on campus. In my free time, I love binging the latest Netflix series, reading recommended books, trying a new trendy restaurant, cooking, and baking. I am so excited to be a part of and contribute to this wonderful community!
