Gaby Arifin

Hello! I'm a senior in the College studying Psychology. I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, and have lived in Los Angeles, California, since I was three. I'm imaginative and I cherish smiley faces, food, movies, food, adventures, food, books, and steak. I'm passionate about life and I believe it becomes exponentially better the more you become comfortable in your own skin. My goal is to work with nonprofit organizations that help out LGBTQ youth. I look forward to exploring diverse LGBTQ related issues as well as specifically the hardships and joys of being Asian and Queer! I'm excited to not only get to know you, but also learn from you!

Hey there! My name is Duy and I'm your new facilitator for this year. I was born and raised in Vietnam, but moved to Atlanta in 2008. I'm optimistic and believe in the idea that everyone should be able to celebrate their identities with pride wherever they are. I'm a history and religion joint major, and hopefully heading to law school afterward. My goal is to work in DC and contribute to the fight for greater equality and inclusion of LGBT in the United States. I'm excited to be with you this year and I hope that you could find in our space an inclusive space and a welcoming community.
