Uma has attended Oberlin College where she worked at Oberlin’s Sexual Information Center (SIC). The SIC provides low-cost safer-sex supplies, workshops, sexual education classes, and confidential peer counseling to members of the Oberlin community. Uma taught Spanish to elementary school students and was focused on learning pedagogical techniques that promote student choice and output. She is interested in work to combine these two interests within a framework that acknowledges how dynamics of race, class, and gender can manifest within classroom spaces.
