Sabrina's Bio

Sabrina R. Glass is currently a senior majoring in Women & Gender Studies with a minor in Health Science here at West Chester University. Sabrina also works on campus as a resident assistant in Killinger Hall, peer educator for the Center for Women and Gender Equity and a campus organizer for the It’s on US campaign.

Sabrina said that the choice of combining Women &  Gender Studies with health sciences came from their desire to work in women’s health. Being a student in Women’s and Gender Studies combined with my other activities on campus helped me develop an interest in gender advocacy.” Sabrina advocates for the LGBTQ community and has a strong interest in gender inclusion on campus. As a resident assistant, they are working towards accessible and affordable housing for all genders on campus. Some progress has been made; however, there is still work to be done for gender inclusion on campus. In the future, Sabrina aims to pursue a Masters in Social Work and eventually a PHD in Gender and Sexuality Studies.

WGST helped me to prepare to achieve my goals mostly by showing me that I have a voice. The department and the professors in it have encouraged me to speak my mind, express my opinions, and continue to learn.
