School starts Monday! Hope you are ready for a great year at Udub! Enjoy your last weekend of summer!
How Uhh! Nu Rani Williams Me NahNe’Ah. Hello! My name is Rani Williams. I am currently a senior here at the UW double majoring in Communications and American Indian Studies. I also have a pre-health background. I am from the Walker River Paiute Reservation in Schurz, Nevada. I grew up on the reservation and commuted to a high school off the reservation 30+ miles away. I chose to attend the UW because of the great education I can earn while surrounding myself with a diverse community as well as a great American Indian student population on campus striving to become future leaders.
Over the last three years I have been a member of First Nations (Communications Chair, Vice President), the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, Yehawali Mentorship Program, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute- Biology Fellows, as well as an active member within the Ethnic Cultural Center community. I was also accepted into the Four Directions Summer Research Program at Harvard Medical School where I conducted biomedical research for a summer and shadowed the best doctors and surgeons in the nation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital Boston. I have lived in the dorms, UW apartments, and I have also lived around the U-district.
I love to read, bead, and lead! I also enjoy playing and coaching volleyball, meeting new people, playing ANY sport, and going on any adventure that happens to come my way!
My job as AISC Director is to be there for you whenever you need me. I am here to support you any way I can! If there is anything you want to see within the AISC, let me know. If you have any problems with school or life in general, I am here to listen. If there is anything within the ASUW that you want to support or you are against, give me a shout! I am here to make sure your voice is heard loud and clear within the student government. Please contact me if you have any questions, comments, or problems. Better yet, come into my office at the HUB, my door is always open for any student (Native or not)!
I am very excited for this year and I can’t wait to meet all of you. Presha Mu! (Thank you all)
