Raven Gates Raven Gates. Hi, I am a third year Women's Studies major with a double minor in Sociology and Ethnic Studies. I also work at the Women's Center as the Women's Center Coordinator. I love learning new things especially when it relates to social justice. I also love sports but mostly basketball. Since my first dream as a WNBA player isn't going to work out, I plan to become a lawyer.
Eliasar Molina Eliasar Molina, I am currently a 3rd year Political Science Major, my full name is Eliasar de Jesus Molina, most people call me Big E. I got involved with S.T.A.R.S. through the Women Center, but I also relate to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault/Rape or Abuse, I am a survivor. I have a strong niche in getting the word out there for Safe Sex, Consensual Sex, and Healthy Relationships.There is nothing wrong with enjoying or having fun as long as good clean fun. Students Talking About Relationships and Sex has taught me many things already, that I have begun to put to practice, and has also made me figure out that I want to pursue something in relation to this in life. A no is a No! A I don't know is a No! A yes is yes, but a No! if under the influence.
