Diversity and Inclusion

Beatrice Fadrigon

Hi folks, my name is Beatrice Fadrigon and I am the Diversity and Inclusion Chair for this year! I’m a senior majoring in Psychology. I was born in the Philippines and moved to the United States when I was 7, living in Central/South Central Pennsylvania most of the time—so i’m somewhere in-between first and second generation of immigrants. Outside of SGB, I am passionate about research and have done work regarding how LGBT people of color use technology to cope with stigma. I’m also the president and co-founder of the Alliance of Queer and Underrepresented Asians in Recognition of Intersectionality to Uphold Solidarity (AQUARIUS). In my free time, I like going to pop punk shows and attempt to learn how to skateboard. Should there be any feedback, concerns, or questions—feel free to message me at!
