Christina Takeda. Our Stories, Our Communities: UO Diversity Christina Takeda 

BS in Psychology. Class of 2017.  Home: San Diego, CA


I am part of the Army ROTC program here at the U of O. Our community is built of students that exemplify leadership skills. We motivate each other to excel not only in our program but in our school work as well. We become each other’s support system when we face challenging moments in life. This community is different from most you'll encounter here on this campus.


A challenge I faced was trying to adapt to a new environment and community that was very different compared to my community back in San Diego. I was able to overcome this challenge by getting involved in ROTC and DEI. Through these to programs I was able to connect with a diverse group of staff and students who motivate me to accomplish my goals.
