Hello everyone! My name is Julia, and I am a junior studying Physics with a double-minor in Mathematics and Statistics and Classical and Ancient Studies.
This will be my first semester working at the UMKC Women’s Center. I am excited to be a part of an organization focused on the success and equity of university women and all women everywhere. I am looking forward to working with inspiring leaders to spread awareness of many gender-based issues and to help women achieve their academic and personal goals.
One of my biggest passions is education and learning in all forms. I look forward to participating in programs that emphasize this for underrepresented women from all backgrounds, fields, and walks of life.
Aside from education, I enjoy just being outside in nature, yoga, fashion, baking, and all things Game of Thrones. I love meeting new people and would love to meet you, too! Hope you all are having a great semester!

Hey there! I’m Zaquoya Rogers, a sophomore interested in Health Administration with a minor in Black Studies. This is my third semester working at the UMKC Women’s Center, and it feels great to be back!
The UMKC Women’s Center has always been a safe space that allows for people of every background to come in and take part in our goal to educate about feminism. Working here in the past has helped me build awesome relationships with staff and students. Every day is an opportunity to learn and help others learn of our mission.
This semester, I am looking forward to reaching out to more students and sharing my knowledge about intersectional feminism. One by one, we can make the change!

Hello! I’m Korrien Hopkins, and I’m a sophomore here at UMKC. This is my second semester working at the Women’s Center, and I’m excited to be back!
The Women’s Center creates an environment that allows for positive discourse about feminism to take place, which I love. It’s a place where I teach others about feminism, as well as expand my knowledge and experience advocating for women’s equity on campus and within the community at large.
This semester, I plan to effectively educate the campus and community on feminism. I will work to change negative opinions toward feminism or other social issues. I will continue to learn how to effectively discuss social issues in a manner that will inspire others to get involved.
Come visit me at the Women’s Center!
I am always available with open arms, ears and an open-mind. I look forward to seeing you all at some of our wonderful events
this academic school year.
