Hello, My Name is Kayden
I am currently in my first year of pursuing a master's degree in social work. I graduated from Bowling Green State University with a bachelor's degree in social work. During my undergraduate career I focused on fostering diverse and inclusive spaces for all individuals through my work as the President of Multicultural All-Inclusive Gamma Rho Lambda National Sorority Alpha Beta Chapter, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Queer/Trans Student Union (QTSU), Research presentations on Microaggressions & the History of Racial Fetishization, Advocacy work for missing Black and Indigenous women & girls, and previously working as a Resident Advisor for BGSUs Office of Residence Life.
During my undergraduate career I worked on a research project with a focus on Microaggressions students of color face at Historically White Institutions (HWIs). Within this research we received several replies of sexual assaults that our participants had experienced. This led me to forming the website "MIABW" as an advocation project, which I solely fund & manage. The creation of MIABW quickly flourished into a passion for researching the history of racial fetishization. I have since created a workshop that goes over the historical background of this topic and how it impacts human trafficking, domestic violence, and sexual violence. My mission is to help individuals find support they need and offer ways for people to get involved/advocate.
