Brandon is especially passionate about issues surrounding men of color, women of color, gender, sexuality and the intersection of those all those identity traits along with class. He also currently works in the Admissions Office as the Multicultural Recruitment Intern and is excited about being a SRP in Tri-co to continue to help students transition to Haverford, while sharing real experiences about Haverford. He looks forward to ensuring that Tri-co is both intellectually stimulating and "quality" as well.

Tiffany Nguyen '16: Born in California, Tiffany currently lives in Philadelphia. She is a sophomore and has not decided on a major yet, but she is interested in English and Political Science. As her family is originally from Vietnam, she enjoys eating Vietnamese food and exotic fruit (ask her about Durian!) In addition she likes to spend her time reading Murakami, writing poetry and watching foreign films. She especially enjoys listening to music and playing the piano. During the school year, she will be a tour guide in the admissions office and hopes to share with others her love for Haverford.
Sam Shain '14: When she's not exploring Philadelphia, cooking dinner parties, participating in protests, working on knitting projects, making maps, or gardening, Sam Shain is a senior at Haverford College studying the Growth and Structure of Cities. She grew up in Central New Jersey on the Delaware River, the same water that brought her to Philadelphia. She's especially interested in radical politics, food and environmental justice and queer and trans* justice. She'd be thrilled to cook you a meal (or cook a meal together) and loves making new friends!
Ramelcy Uribe '16: Ramelcy is a rising sophomore at Haverford, born and raised in the South Bronx. She is positive she wants to be a Sociology major (minors and concentrations are currently up in the air). This year she will be one of two co-heads for the Black Student League (BSL), hoping to create a more inclusive community for students of color on campus and expanding the perception of Black identities at Haverford. Ramelcy is especially passionate about issues surrounding womyn of color, men of color, immigrants and their children, and the intersection of those three groups with class. It will also be her second year playing rugby for Bryn Mawr's Horned Toads Rugby team. Ramelcy enjoys going into Philly whether for clothes, food, and socializing with other students, or simply wandering to remind her of her home city. When she's not an intellectual thug (which is all the time), you can most likely find her blogging and writing or badly freestyle rapping. She's also super excited about being an SRP this year!
