The 2020-2021 Executive Board
                                                 

Danielle Obisie-Orlu, President

Hey everyone, my name is Danielle Obisie-Orlu and I am the President of RSA! I am a junior pursuing the Bachelor of Philosophy in International & Area Studies with double majors in Political Science, and double minors in French and Sociology. I joined RSA because I believe in the power of community and using our voices as tools of change. I want Pitt to feel like a place where everyone feels like they can belong, and tell their stories through programming, advocacy, and empowering others to take up space and leave their marks. One fun fact about me is that I am also the Youth Poet Laureate of Allegheny County, so feel free to ask me about Poetry, anytime!

Hi, everyone! My name is Ashley Martin, my pronouns are She/Her/Hers, and I am the Vice President of Administration for the RSA Executive Board for 2021-2022! I am a junior majoring in Psychology on the pre-Physician Assistant track. I joined RSA because I wanted to feel a stronger bond with the community that I was surrounded by. After joining, I was amazed by the teamwork, advocacy, and changes that RSA was making, and I want to continue these incredible feats as I work more with RSA. One fun fact about me is that I am a Nationally Registered EMT! I am so excited to get to work with everyone very soon!
