Skylar Rella, they/them, Class of 2021
Sky is a senior from Pittsburgh. Their self-built Special Studies major is called “Identity Politics & the Arts,” combining Theater, Creative Writing, & Sociology; they also minor in Dance. As both a student worker for the Alice Drum Women’s & LGBTQ+ Center as well as the Costume Shop for F&M’s Theater and Dance department, Sky very much enjoys the intersections of and relationships between activism/advocacy and creative processes.
[image description: Skylar stands on the lower right side of the frame, eyes closed and smiling wide with teeth showing. In black, ankle boot heels, they have one foot up on a gray rock, with one hand on the opposite side in the pocket of dark blue overalls with white stripes, over a black t-shirt, and a lanyard hanging out of the pocket. There is a white scrunchie on the wrist of that hand, and a facemask held in the other hand. On their face are clear-frame glasses. One side of their head has wavy, bleach-blonde hair, while the other side has shorter, dark brown hair. They stand beside a large body of water which takes up the left side of the frame as well as much of the background. In the upper left corner, there is a small fountain within the body of water, and in between the fountain and the person are a few ducks atop the water. Along the top of the frame, behind both the person and fountain, is a dense collection of dark green trees.]
Sheryl Apunte, she/her, Class of 2021
Sheryl has been a student worker at the ADWC/LGBTQ Center for 2 years now. Sheryl is a first generation latinx student from the Bronx, NY. She is also a member of the ADWC Student Board as well as Mi Gente Latina co-president and a member of several other organizations on campus. Sheryl is a double major in Spanish and Theater and she is hoping to continue her love for education and mentorship after college by becoming a teacher. Although she is very nervous to graduate and sad to leave F&M she is really thankful for her chance to study here, the friends and connections she has made, and the ADWC for being her (and many others) safe space on campus.

She is wearing an orange/red swearing with a black crossbody bag on her left shoulder. She holds a small orange pumpkin in both hands and brings it up to the left side of her face, silver jewlery is on her left wrist.
