RJ Student Leaders
Hi! My name is Ollie, and I'm a junior here at Cal studying Integrative Biology and Conservation and Resource Studies. I love podcasts, animals, and being an RA. I have a passion for restorative justice practices, along with building healthy relationships, dealing with interpersonal conflict, and understanding how to apologize and work to make oneself a better person. I can't wait to work with you to build community and work through issues!
Salomé Ragot is a 2st year intending to major in Global Studies with a focus on Peace and Conflict and hoping to minor in Spanish. As a French immigrant, Salomé grew up immersed in two cultures, surrounded by a strong international community. Because of this, she places a strong value on creating connections across cultural differences. She is interested in RJ because it links her passion for social justice and activism with her interest in community building and conflict resolution. Salomé is in her second year working as a student leader at the RJ center where she co-facilitates the decal, participates in RJ trainings and events, and develops the website.
