Camille Borders is a sophomore at Washington University in St. Louis, as a John B. Ervin Scholar. She is the founder of Girls Run the World: Encouraging Political Activism in Young Women. In October 2013 the pilot project was presented in Cincinnati, Ohio. She earned her Girl Scout Gold Award for her work to increase gender equity in politics and was named a 2014 National Young Woman of Distinction; the highest honor in Girl Scouting. On campus, she is a member of Performance Crew, a leadership and performance Slam Poetry group that leads events and workshops on campus and in the community. Her poetry, spanning themes of racialized identity, feminism and sexuality, has been featured across campus in collaboration with The Association of Latin American Students and the Association of African Students. Also, she is an active member of both the Association of Black Students and PRIDE Alliance. She is a facilitator for SafeZones, a student group dedicated to promoting awareness and discussion of LGBTQIA issues. Additionally, as a History major Camille is a member of the executive board for Washington University’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history fraternity. Following the shooting of Michael Brown, Camille joined Washington University Students in Solidarity (WUSIS): a new student group created to fight against police brutality and racial profiling. She actively organizes actions including on-campus walkouts, protests and demonstrations while protesting in the greater St. Louis community. Through WUSIS Camille has grown to understand the necessity for action to create change. WUSIS is currently in the discussion process with administrators concerning a list of demands including increased minority enrollment, more faculty of color and ways to make campus safer for African-American students.
