Shane Mansfield: I am a sophomore here at Radfird Universty majoring in marketing with a minor in communications. An interesting fact about me: out of my family, I am the only boy from my parent’s family (32 cousins). I like CDI because its such a social hub and I love meeting new people, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to work here.

Ana Portillo: I am a sophomore at Radford University majoring in Social Work with a Minor in Psychology, with a concentration in Mental Health and Gang Violence. I am actively involved in multiple organization such as the Latino Student Alliance, The National Residence Hall Honorary, and serve as a Deputy Registrar and Global Ambassador Mentor on the Radford campus. Another position that I uphold is being a Residential Assistant in Ingles Hall. Lastly, I am part of the executive board of the Spanish Honors Society here on campus and Sigma Delta Pi, as Vice President. I’m honored to be part of the CDI family because diversity and inclusion are big parts of my life and they allow me to feel proud of who I am everywhere I go.

Nehemiah Bester-Lewis: I am a sophomore studying Media Studies Major with a concentration in Production Technology. In addition to being a member of the CDI family, I write for the school’s newspaper, The Tartan, and am an executive board member of the The Diversity Awareness Programming Board (DAP) and The African Student Association (ASA). I am also one of the founders of Radford newest male organization; Independent Men Achieving Goals in Education (I.M.A.G.E.). What I love most about The Center for Diversity and Inclusion is the sense of family, diversification and opportunity. There isn’t a place on Radford’s campus that has made more of a considerable impact on my college experience as the Center for Diversity & Inclusion has.
