Kaya Gravitter

I am Kaya; phonetically it is pronounced (KAY-YUH). I am a sassy, sarcastic, independent, and pretty comical woman. The Diversity and College Access Director referred to me as a “force of nature”; due to my persistent strive to get things done, no matter the obstacle. “We need to help students and parents cherish and preserve the ethnic and cultural diversity that nourishes and strengthens this community - and this nation.” — Cesar Chavez What I do on Campus: I am a non-traditional student at UW – Stevens Point (UWSP) with a double major in Political Science and International Studies . I transferred to Stevens Point last year from UW Marathon County (UWMC), to take an Arabic class. I used to commute to Stevens Point 4 days a week from Wausau and work full time. It was a struggle but all my hard work is paying off. I am now at UWSP full time! This semester I received a campus leadership award and a diversity and inclusivity scholarship! I will be taking the LSAT (law school admission exam) in October this year! I want to be an advocate for human rights and help create global diversity, and that is something I am really passionate about. I came from a small town in northern WI and I had no diversity experience in my life…. Now making Diversity is my life.
