Hi! I’m Namratha Kasalanati, the President and Founder of Diversity Dispatch. I coordinate all of the groups, but I also write parts of the “Events” and “Featured Figures” sections.

Emma Dillard

Hi! I am Emma Dillard and I am the commissioner for the Publications and Newsletter Management Team! This means I work on everything from the newsletter itself to the social media.

Sheila Teker

Hi, I’m Sheila! I usually write the “Featured Figure” articles, and help manage this website! I think it’s crucial that as youth, we begin to use our voices to emphasize the importance of diversity; share opinions, ideas, and smiles! 🙂 Even if we can’t change the whole world at once, we can all make our small corners of this planet just a bit brighter!

I am a senior this year and have been Co-Comissioner of Diversity since my junior year. I love movies with my favorites being Her, Loving Vincent, and Howl’s Moving Castle.

Juliana Meneses

Since 6th grade, I have participated in orchestra, band and jazz, which has introduced me to a world in which differences do not separate people, but unite them towards a common goal. Diversity Dispatch allows me to share the beautiful music and different musicians’ stories that I have grown to love.

Abby Raphael

For the newsletter I write about Non Profit organizations. I love hearing about different groups in our district that work on things including mental health, racial equity, and women’s rights. I think it’s super important for people to know they have other people around them that are here to listen and support who they are and their rights.
