Cheyenne, Graphic Design/Outreach Coordinator

My name’s Cheyenne and I am the Graphic Design / Outreach Coordinator of Safe Place. This is my third year at Chico State and I am from a small town not very far from Chico, called Oroville. I am majoring in Animal Science, and wanted to expand my wings on issues such as sexual violence to spread awareness and to be a familiar face to the Asian community that may seek guidance. Outside of work I love to go thrifting and go on long adventurous scenic hikes.

Mikie, Events Program Coordinator

My name is Mikie, I am the Events Program Coordinator for Safe Place. I am double majoring in Psychology and Multicultural Gender Studies with an option in Women's Studies and also have a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies. I will be graduating this Spring 2020 and will continue my education in the pursuit of a master's degree in Psychology. I decided to intern at Safe Place because it aligns with my ideas of feminism and my want to advocate for those in my community." 

Steve, Male Engagement Preventionist

My name is Steve and I am a 2nd year student here at Chico State majoring in Psychology. On my free time I enjoy going out on runs, playing soccer, and spending time with family and friends. The reason I wanted to intern at Safe Place was, because I believe in its mission statement and I want to help advocate and bring awareness on this issue. I have always been a person who enjoys helping others, and I feel this position gives me a great opportunity to do that. I'm very excited for the things I will learn from this internship, because I know it will really help me later on in my career.

Abby, Tabling & Outreach Coordinator

My name is Abby, and I am the Tabling and Outreach coordinator. I am a 3rd year studying Social Work. I joined the Safe Place team because I have discovered a passion for advocating and helping others. I love to travel and I love volunteering.  I was fortunate enough this summer to travel to the west coast of Africa, in Ghana, for a month volunteering this past summer. I hope to continue learning here at Chico State so that one day I can use my skills to continue helping people around the world.
