Kaelea graduated from the University of California, Davis in the Spring of 2019 with a degree in Political Science. During her time there, she engaged with many diverse communities that taught her so much. She worked on local campaigns, interned at under-served schools in Sacramento, joined the executive board of a campus organization pushing for mental wellness among college students, and participated in many other activities that strive for positive social change.
Her desire to continue serving her community and under-represented populations led er to the position of Community Organizer here at RIL in April of 2020. She hopes to bring the community together through positivity and a shared sense of resilience and drive.
In her free time, Kaelea enjoys reading novels, writing poetry, and spending quality time with those she loves!
