Damon, QRC Advocate


Hi, my name is Damon(He/Him). This is my first year at PCC. Afterwards, I want to transfer to PSU and further my education in psychology in hopes of being either a therapist or counselor. In my free time, I enjoy writing stories and poetry or just playing video games. As well, I am committed to watching Jeopardy daily. It’s one of my favorite shows and one I’ve been watching since I was a kid. Do I dream of going on Jeopardy? Yes. Do I think I could win? Maybe if it’s a good day. Will I go if I get the opportunity? I’ve done my part, just waiting for a response.

Kara, QRCAdvocate


Hi! My name is Kara (she/her). I have lived in the Portland area my entire life. I am a first year PCC student, and a recent high school graduate. I’m currently studying carpentry, although that is subject to change at a moment’s notice. In my spare time I love to spend time with friends, play games, and ride my motorcycle (a 2006 Kawasaki KLR650).  I’m excited to get to know the queer community at PCC! 🙂

Hello and welcome! I’m mae and I’ve been your Queer Resource Center Coordinator since October 2016. I love working with students and my personal goal is to make higher education more accessible for everyone who wants to pursue it. I’m a community college graduate myself (Seattle Central CC), a Portland State alum (B.S. in Women’s Studies), and a University of Vermont alum (M.Ed. Higher Education & Student Affairs Administration). I love talking about my cat, your cat, educational journeys, social justice, the gender galaxy, fall weather, intersectional feminisms, queer culture, and coffee. Come say hi!
