Meet Our Peer Educators
Hi! My name is Brianna Sukenik and I am the Student Director of CARE. I got involved in CARE spring semester of my junior year as an intern and became a Student Director the next semester. I originally became a part of CARE to get credit toward graduation but fell so deeply in love with the organization that I stayed involved. The education and relationships I've gained are life long and I owe it all to CARE.
I am the Associate Student Director of CARE. I'm a senior majoring in Sociology. In my free time I like to play sports, spend time with my friends and family, watch the office, and travel! I joined CARE because I have a passion for helping people. I am extremely into social issues and wanting to help and change the world. CARE has helped me learn a lot about those who have struggled through sexual violence and what we can do on our side to help.
My major is psychology with an art minor. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors, movies, and painting. I also love spending time with my friends and family. I joined CARE to become more involved on campus but also to help spread awareness of sexual assault and to promote healthy relationships. I am looking forward to everything I will be able to learn through this experience with the CARE program.
I am majoring in Psychology and minoring in Women and Genders Studies. Some of my hobbies are swimming and other water related sport activities such as canoeing, kayaking, etc. I love summer. I joined CARE because of my interest in helping individuals who experience domestic violence, sexual assault, etc. It's something I would like to do as a career.
My name is Rosa Pacheco, I am in my fourth year and anticipate graduating with my degree in Psychology this spring. I am currently in the process of applying for the Professional Counseling Graduate Program with an emphasis in Mental Health here at the UW Oshkosh. I learned about this internship primarily through my Psychology Professor and the Student Director of CARE. As a Community Advisor in the Learning in a First Year Environment (LIFE) building, I have promoted and attended many of the CARE events on campus such as Take back the Night and speaker series that involved Laci Green and Steve Thompson. Many of the CARE events I have attended have helped me develop a compassionate approach and commitment to assisting victims and survivors of any form of abuse.
I encourage students who want to be part of an organization that stands for positive change, prefer hands on experience rather than sitting in a classroom for credit, and want something meaningful on their resume to consider applying. Many great outcomes follow this internship.
My name is Alex Licari and this is my first semester as a C.A.R.E peer educator. I am junior majoring in Social Work with a psychology minor. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, being outside, and watching new movies! I love working with children and have worked at a summer camp for the past three years. I joined C.A.R.E to learn more about topics dealing with healthy relationships and sexual assault. I am also very passionate about wanting to educate others on these topics. C.A.R.E has given me the opportunity to stretch myself and really step out of my comfort zone.
