Daniella Bonos Caluza

Hi y'all! My name is Daniella (she/her), and I'm a rising junior majoring in Symbolic Systems. I was born in the Philippines, but grew up in Stockton, CA. I'm currently unclear about what exactly it is I want to do, but I know I want to be able to give back to the communities I've come from. On campus, I'm involved in the Pilipino-American Student Union, and I work in the FLI Office. Outside of that, you can usually find me having a good time with my friends, reading, or cooking. I can't wait to meet you all!

Clarissa Gutierrez

Hi everyone! My name is Clarissa Gutierrez (’20, she/her) and I am from the LA area! I am studying Psychology with a minor in Chicanx/Latinx Studies. Although my plans for the future change on a daily basis (I’m not even kidding…), all I know is that I want to tie my passions for educational equity and cultural empowerment together. I’m super interested in mental health advocacy, mindfulness, positive psychology, street art, poetry, language, and the ways different communities explore their identities. On campus, I’m involved with Hermanas de Stanford and I will be an Ethnic Theme Associate at Casa Zapata. My favorite places are Victoria Beach, my grandma’s garden in Mexico, and pretty much anywhere the sun shines and the flowers bloom! I am so happy to meet you all, welcome to our family!

Justin L Henson

Hey homies! My name is Justin Henson ('20), and I'm Diné and Keetoowah Cherokee, raised in the cool place of SoCal (Riverside, in Southern California). I'm majoring in Human Biology, with an intent to become a doctor to work at IHS clinics later on in life. I love video games, going on runs, and watching way too much Youtube videos. I'm heavily involved with the Native/Indigenous community, a the STEM group called AISES, and can answer pretty much any question you have if you wanna become involved too! LSP has really helped me transition into Stanford, and I couldn't thank it anymore. I can't wait to meet y'all! B)

Betty Lee

Hi, y'all!! My name is Betty Lee ('21), and I'm double majoring in English and Theater & Performance Studies. I was born in Busan, South Korea, but I moved around a lot as kid, so I like to say I'm from the sunny city of Los Angeles since Southern California feels most like home. I'm passionate about creative writing and theater, and I've acted, directed, and produced for many different theater groups on campus. I love creating all kinds of art, even if I'm not particularly great at all of them, because I think being moved by art is a beautiful thing. On a regular day, you can find me flailing about in rehearsal until 11pm, churning out essays the day they're due, watching whatever I'm obsessed with on Netflix, and reading for pleasure because we all need to do that more often. My two main goals in life, which I strive to implement every day, is 1. to have a positive impact on others and in the world, no matter how small or large and 2. to live without regrets, which means I'm trying my best in every moment and taking all the chances I'm given. Most importantly, LSP has been vital to my time here at Stanford, and I'm so excited to be a preceptor and to welcome YOU into the LSP family!! Yes!!

Aron Nunez

What's up guys! My name is Aron (c/o 2021) and I'm majoring in Management Science and Engineering choosing between finance or ops track. I am from a super small town in the (real) northern part of California. My music interests range from Khalid to Take Me Home, Country Roads and Lil Mosey. When I'm not hanging with friends and watching ATLA, I'm probably driving to Chik-Fil-A or Philz Coffee (Iced Philtered Soul). I'm also a huge running and working out guy so let me know if you want to go on a sick run around campus or hit Farrillaga. Also please ask me about my sick biking accidents! Can't wait to meet y'all.

Salei Salanoa

Oh heyyyyy!!! I'm Salei ('21, he/him). I was born and raised in Inglewood, CA and somehow ended up at Stanford studying Psychology and Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CSRE). On campus, I dance with Los Salseros de Stanford, work at the FLI (First-Gen and/or Low-Income) Office as a student staff member, and sing in the shower because I'm not in any a capella groups...I could never hehe. If you can look past the fact that I'm 6'4", then you'll find that I'm just an approachable "smol" boy who loves playing Super Smash Bros and loves eating Hot Cheetos. Although I am also a part of the Queer (LGBT+) and Latinx communities, the FLI community has a special place in my heart. LSP is the only reason Stanford feels like home, and all I want to do is share that feeling. Can't wait to welcome you all to the family!

Shania Santana

Henlo!! My name is Shania (’21) and I was born and raised in Chicago’s Southwest side! Woot woot! I have a lot of pride in my city, so please ask me anything (please) I love talking about Chicago. After many twists and turns in my academics I am so happy to announce that I will be majoring in Urban Studies. Although I am still unsure about what career path I want to take, I know that I want to serve under-resourced communities and address urban issues through environmental justice, health, policy, and education. I am confident that a single person has the power to make so much change, but it takes communities to sustain it. My interests include Loca the Pug, social justice, trying new things, doggos and kitties, languages, art, food, movies, listening to all the musics, hanging out with friends, and exploring. I truly believe that every single one of us is radiant, therefore I can’t wait to be your preceptor and be embraced by your warm rays! Welcome home!

Jamie Seney

Hellooo! My name is Jamie (she/they) and I am majoring in Art Practice with the hope of figuring out the role of art in confronting and healing from trauma. I'm either from Nebraska or Montana or TBD, but wherever home is I'm sure it has many dogs and very blue skies. My favorite conversations are about constructing and conceiving realities, colors, music (ask me about my playlists PLEASE), and anything related to art. My aspiration is to do absolutely anything but a desk job; more specifically, being a full-time artist would be really fantastic. Fun fact: I came into Stanford as a STEM major with a particular interest in quantum physics...Ask me what changed.

Wint Thazin

Hello darlings! I’m Wint (‘20). I am majoring in Medical Anthropology with a minor in Human Biology. I was born in Myanmar, a little-known Southeast Asian country, and immigrated to Tampa, Florida when I was five. Although, I don’t know exactly what I want to do, I know I want to serve under-resourced immigrant communities through health interventions and education. I believe that small acts of compassion can make unprecedented changes in individuals, families, and communities. In my free time, I enjoy practicing calligraphy, watercolor painting, writing spoken word poems, running, and cooking/baking. Fun fact: Farmer’s markets are my happy place. On campus, I am involved in Stanford Cooking Society, Dining Ambassadors, and educational workshops. I can’t wait to meet you all. See you this summer!
