Meet Bree Kalima
Aloha mai kākou! My name is Bree Kalima (she/her/hers) and I am an indigenous pacific womxn, scholar-practitioner, ally, storyteller, and femtor. I was born and raised on the island of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi and identify ethnically as Kanaka Maoli, Japanese, Chinese, English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh. I am honored to be the Pacific Islander, Asian, and Asian American (PIAAA) Student Center Program Coordinator at PSU. Prior to coming to PSU, I pursued my undergraduate education as a first-gen student at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo (UHH) where I studied Psychology, Administrtaion of Justice, and Hawaiian Studies. During my time at UHH, I served as a student coordinator for First-Year Experience, Academic & Career Advising, Residential Life, Peer Mentoring, and Minority Access & Achievement Programs. I was also part of the coalition that reinstated the Native Hawaiian Student Leadership Conference. After taking a working gap year upon graduation, I continued my education at San Diego State University (SDSU) where I will soon earn my M.Ed. in Postsecondary Educational Leadership, Specialization in Student Affairs. While at SDSU, I was a graduate assistant for Commuter Life in the office of Student Life & Leadership, a graduate assistant for the Center for Intercultural Relations, and the graduate intern for (AAPI)phany – a student-centered workshop series that explored identity, culture, community, advocacy and coalition building of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Lastly, I am a Community Engagement Coordinator for NASPAʻs Asian Pacific Islander Knowledge Community (API KC). Outside of my role at PSU, I am a huge foodie and I like to work out, (re)connect to land/culture/community/self, binge watch Netflix/Hulu, and talk story.

Renjeng Su Renjeng Su
As the dean of the Maseeh College of Engineering & Computer Science, Renjeng sees a direct connection between learning and diversity in the classroom. In his experience, a college campus is like any other ecosystem, and diversity is necessary to sustain that environment. “Students learn from the entire ecosystem of learning,” he said.

Jen Armbruster Jen Armbruster
When Jen came to PSU just over a year ago, her family was just about to get a little bigger. Jen and her domestic partner were expecting their first son, and Jen was grateful that her family was recognized by PSU and for how welcome she felt. She also sees that spirit of community extended to students. “Portland State just offers you a niche to fit in.”

Undergraduate Student
Jackie Alvarado Jackie Alvarado
Jackie started dancing to Mexican folk music at age 3 hasn’t stopped since. She’s proud of her Mexican heritage and equally proud to be the first person in her family who will graduate from college. Jackie appreciates the diverse, friendly environment at PSU and goes out of her way to make new students feel just as welcome as she did.
Undergraduate Student
Rebecca Arcos Rebecca Arcos
It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind—something Rebecca has done three times in her choice of career. After studying business and engineering, she found her true calling and majored in social work at PSU. She’s also forged strong friendships with students of very different beliefs and backgrounds.
Alumnus
Smitty S. Buckler Smitty S. Buckler
Skateboarding, biking, surfing, rollerskating—if you can stand on it or it has wheels—Smitty’s all about it. He also loves whipping up something fresh from the community garden and working at the Queer Resource Center. After testing the waters at six different colleges, Smitty says he’s found his home at PSU.
Undergraduate Student
Jimmy Hsu Jimmy Hsu
“What’s up?” When Jimmy was asked that question his first year at PSU, he’d literally look up to see if something was there. His English skills have come a long way since then—and besides the three languages he already speaks, now he’s studying German and Spanish. He credits “Glee” for helping teach him American slang, and PSU for countless opportunities to get involved.
Undergraduate Student
Felicia Bautista Nelson Felicia Bautista Nelson
Felicia is a PSU student, proud Mexican American—and fledgling fisherwoman. Always up for a new experience, she recently took up fishing and though she was at first a little grossed out by baiting her own hook, she now reels 'em in like a pro. Felicia says PSU is the perfect environment for people like her who love trying out new things, discovering new cultures, and connecting with their heritage.
Graduate Student
Valesca Walesko Valesca Walesko
When Valesca arrived at PSU from Brazil, she had a serious passion for AC/DC, limited English skills, and a narrower view of the world. Since then, she’s become fluent in English and says the incredible diversity on campus has really opened her mind to new cultures, ideas and opinions. And while she enjoys discovering new music, she still loves rocking out to old-school metal.
Undergraduate Student
Avel Louise Gordly Avel Louise Gordly
Avel is modest about her accomplishments, perhaps because to describe them all would require a day. The first African American woman elected to the Oregon State Senate, she is a dedicated activist, community leader, PSU professor and author—to name just a few. To top it off, she’s a phenomenal storyteller, as we found out in our interview.
Alumnus
Ahmed Bohliqa Ahmed Bohliqa
How do you say “ambition?” How about arriving at Portland State University from Saudi Arabia speaking limited English, and going on to deliver the commencement speech at graduation four years later? Ahmed’s experience wasn’t always easy, but he says that few words can describe the impact the university had on his life.
