Co-facilitator Pairs

Humans of IDP #41: Chelle Davies ’22 and Zara Schreiber ‘21

By April 20, 2020 No Comments

This week for #humansofIDP we wanted to highlight another one of our co-facilitator pairs from this semester, Chelle Davies '22 and Zara Schreiber ‘21. Here's what these two have to say about IDP and each other:

Why IDP?

Chelle:

Why not IDP? IDP was the first space where I felt like I would be brave and challenge ideas and voice my dissent without being labeled “difficult” or a bad person. IDP taught me to be my authentic self unapologetically, and it’s a lesson that I value and practice both in and out of the IDP space.

Zara:

I took IDP on a recommendation from a friend, and now I can’t get enough. For me, IDP is a space on campus where I am valued for being myself, and where I feel that my contributions are heard and important. It allows me to challenge myself to learn and grow, exploring my own socializations and how I partake in systemic systems of oppression and privilege. Everyone I interact with through IDP broadens my perspective and makes me think about things in new and interesting ways.

What is your favorite thing about your co-facilitator?

Chelle:

Her boldness! She’s definitely someone that will fight to see something that she is passionate about through.

Zara:

Chelle is amazing! She is funny, friendly, and deeply thoughtful. She helps me to consider new ideas and pushes me to really think about important topics. She has a clear passion for everything she does and somehow magically gives everything her all despite being involved in a million things. Chelle is a great co and a great friend!
