Julian Liston

Inclusion Coordinator

This is Julian Liston and he is from Los Angeles.  Specifically between Crenshaw and Inglewood district located in South Central.  He is currently in his second year at Chico State.  Julian is a first-generation college student and his brother is who inspired him to go to school.  Julian's brother graduated from CSUC in 2018 with a degree in Criminal Justice.  

Someone Julian looks up to is the late great Nipsey Hussle.  Nipsey comes from the same area in LA where Julian was born and raised.  Nipsey inspired people from lower income areas to put themselves in position of financial independence and power.  And no matter the obstacles or bumps in the road, "The Marathon Continues."  Julian's been listening to Nipsey for the majority of his life and feels like he represents people like himself.  Since Julian was 4 years old, he has played sports and that's why he has such a strong love for them.  Julian's favorite teams are the Miami Dolphins, Anaheim Angels and the Lakers.
