NPCSC Leadership

National People of Color Student Coalition, Chair

DT Amajoyi, University of California, Santa Cruz

Hi everyone! My name is Nwadiuto (DT) Amajoyi and I am the 2011-2012 Chair of the National People of Color Student Coalition (NPCSC). Words cannot express just how excited and humbled I am to hold this position. Not just because I get to serve the wonderful students of USSA but also because this is a space that is very near and dear to my heart. I am originally from Nigeria, born and raised, and came to the United States to pursue my education during a time of civil unrest and government corruption in my home country. So it’s quite astounding that I now have the opportunity to advocate for the very reasons that brought me to this country! As a current undergraduate student at the University of California, Santa Cruz, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Literature. I have also been elected to serve as the Commissioner of Diversity for my Student Government. My organizing experience exemplifies the passion I have regarding issues that directly affect the student of color communities and our ability to organize, collaborate, and retain ourselves within the institution of higher education. So for me and other students like myself we realize that organizing is not just a way of getting our voices heard, but also a means of survival and securing a future.
Again, I am extremely excited for this year and all the fun we will have together. So, to memories and wonderful times let our work be unforgettable!
