My name is Alex Bazarsky and I am a junior at Brandeis University. I am majoring in Anthropology and minoring in both Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies, and Art History. Aside from academics, I play club soccer with BFC here and I love to spend time with friends. As a UDR I hope to be a resource for all those within and interested in the LACLS department.

My name is Catherine Romero and I am a rising MKTYP senior. I am majoring in Sociology and Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies. In my free time, I enjoy reading books, doodling, and discovering new music. As a UDR, I am excited to be a bridge between students and the Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies departments. I hope to help build space for students of color to communicate their goals and desires within this department.
