September 2019 Winning Bulletin Board by Jordan R.The bulletin board is themed to the song "This Is Me" in The Greatest Showman movie. There are two blank sections, one for "Identities/Qualities I love about myself" and another for "Things I am self-conscious about." After the pages were full, the second section was unfolded to show the full message "Things I am self-conscious about that also make me unique and beautiful." This reminded residents that they are special and valued and that even the things they may be self-conscious about still make them unique and beautiful. Additionally, the right-hand side of the board is designed after the Bearded Lady of The Greatest Showman, with her beard composed of words conveying some marginilized groups or identities that are commonly made to feel "othered" and her dress, composed of words that are empowering and positive, in an artistic and symbolic way conveying how we can wear our identities proudly and visibly and still feel confident and powerful as individuals, and members of our community.

  Frida Kahlo Paint Night by Jolena P.

RA Jolena hosted a paint night where the residents came together to paint self-portraits in a similar way Frida Kahlo painted her own self-portraits. While residents had fun painting, they learned about Latinx art and specifically how Frida Kahlo impacted the Hispanic community. Residents were able to ask questions regarding Latinx art, Frida Kahlo, or other Latinx artists. At the end of the program, they were able to take home their paintings that imitated Kahlo's work.

Tye-dye(versity) by John S, Stacey S, Diego S, Candace H.

Tye-dye(versity) was held in the Benedict college lounge as an open forum for students to discuss diversity amongst the LGBTQ+ community. This event collaborated with the UGC LDS as an Expand event. Discussion was sparked by the leading RA's in multiple different activities. The first activity was questions relating to terms and misconceptions; noting participants prior knowledge and ability to share with the group. Students were asked to choose a side of the room based on their comfort to discuss their knowledge with the group. This was followed by an informational presentation by each RA including resources, definitions, and social struggles with input from the audience. A final activity on all topics covered in the presentation had residents discuss their own opinions on this fluid topic in a 2 group setting. Finally T-shirt dyeing began and connections continued being made!
