LGBTQA & Social Justice Center Interns and Student Assistants

Max Onofre - Student Assistant
As a Junior from Pace University’s NYC campus, I originate from the deep south, also known as Dallas, Texas. Currently an English major with a minor in communications, I plan to one day become a (successful) journalist. As the previous president of my high schools Gay-Straight Alliance, the Center called to me when I arrived at Pace. My passions include signing at the top of my lungs when I’m alone, doodling, making grill cheese sandwiches, and memorizing useless trivia alongside my ultimate aspiration for equal rights for every person. Though this is my first year working at the Center, I have seen what they’ve accomplished and I can’t wait to work with everyone to make things get even better.

DaSean Young - Student Assistant
Hey all! I’m a sophmore here at Pace. Before my first day, I knew I wanted to work at the Center. I am a Psychology major while still trying to decide on my minor. I have passions for the arts and keeping busy with extracurricular activities. I am from Columbia, Maryland and still working on adjusting to the city. For me the city brings some anxiety but I have Pace and the Center as a “home base”. I am so happy for this opportunity and can’t wait to see what this year brings!
