Jackson Kadyampakeni

Jackson Kadyampakeni

Hello! My name is Jackson Kadyampakeni, from Malawi and currently in my second year of the MS International and Development Economics (IDEC) program. I have a background in program data management, and providing research based analysis which I aim to apply these at BASE to support and engage with the USF Black Community. I firmly believe in the potential of every student to achieve success. With BASE, I am eager to contribute by tailoring programs that offer essential support and guidance, nurturing meaningful relationships, and fostering a sense of community among USF black students. My goal is to support building an environment where every individual can thrive academically and personally. Beyond academics, I enjoy exploring new places, attending EDM concerts, and seasonally play volleyball.

Hey everyone! My name is Zana Lawrence, and I am from Corona, California. I am pursuing a bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in music. My passion area has always been de-stigmatizing the conversation about mental health in the Black community. The disparities in the healthcare system include mental health. That said, Black people deserve access to health care, including mental healthcare, and we deserve to see ourselves in our healthcare providers. I plan to serve the Black community at USF by creating spaces that allow all Black students to be aware of the resources on our campus to assist them with obstacles that they will face as a Black person, not only at a PWI but also as a Black person existing in an unfair system. I am thrilled and honored to be a part of the BASE family.
