Grace Wright, Ambassador

Pronouns | She, Her, Hers

My name is Grace Wright, I am a Junior working toward my bachelor’s degree in English Literature, with a minor in Legal Studies. I think of myself as a very goal-driven individual; once I put my mind to something, I won’t back down or quit until it is finished. That drive has gotten me to where I am today, a proud member of Sigma Tau Delta (English Honor Society) and a part of our diverse Multicultural Center. In my downtime, I spend a lot of time reading and watching my guilty pleasure True Crime documentaries.

Majoring in Pre-Veterinary/Agricultural Science Minoring in Chemistry. I am from Chicago, IL. The MCC to me is a supportive safe place to me. I enjoy meeting new people, going to events, and being involved with getting to know students. The MCC is a great way to connect with others and go to different events where you can something new about cultures, organizations, or meeting new people.

We are only given a certain amount of time to do what we were sent here to do. You don’t have to be around a long time to share the wisdom of a lifetime. You just have to use your time wisely, efficiently. There is no time to waste. - Mamie Till-Mobley

Michelle Narvaez, Ambassador

Pronouns | She, Her, Hers

I grew up in a small town in New Mexico that was filled with murals and Chicano heritage so it’s not a mystery why I’m majoring in Graphic Design and Spanish. The core pillars of who I am were formed in that small mining town and that includes my love for nature and food! Although a part of me will always miss the green chile and the desert wilderness, I’m glad I’m able to expand my experiences here at WIU where I’m far away from rattlesnakes and tarantula hawk wasps (yes, those are real). My goal is to study abroad and strengthen my Spanish skills.

Don't be sad about your panza, give self love a lil chanza
