Hey there, I’m Kira! I came to Oberlin from a small town in Northern California, the land of redwood trees and hippies. At Oberlin, I lived in six (!) different places - Barrows, Kahn, Fairkid, Noah, J-House, and a sweet off-campus house. I'm a big talker, so I always loved finding all the coziest spots in Oberlin to chat with my friends about current events, Mitski, queer stuff, and the best TV shows out there.
Most of my time at Oberlin was spent making films at the Apollo, freaking out about the Midwestern winter, gushing about my classes, and riding my bike around campus. When not doing those things, I trained students about sexual misconduct through Preventing and Responding to Sexual Misconduct (PRSM) and worked in the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. I was also a PAL for first-year students, a mentor with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lorain County, and a major representative for the Comparative American Studies department. At different points in my Oberlin career, I wrote and edited for Wilder Voice, worked at The Oberlin Review, sung in an acapella group, and led Students United for Reproductive Freedom.
I am thrilled to be an Oberlin alum. If you see me out in the world, definitely say hi! I love sharing my adventures with other Obies!
