Jacklyn Chanocua is a Latinx student lead and a dual president of her sorority, Kappa Delta Chi, and the Greek Council.

 After becoming a Latinx student lead, Chanocua had to navigate the position by herself. As she adjusted to her new role, she learned a lot about what it takes to be a strong leader thanks to guidance from the Santos Manuel Student Union's associate director, Rosemary Zometa. "She wasn't afraid to speak what was on her mind and that is what I really loved," said Chanocua.

Greek life has also played a huge role in Chanocua's Coyote leadership experience. She has had powerful CSUSB women staff members set the example of advocating for what is right for students. "I knew I wanted to be that kind of leader whether it be in the Latinx Student Center or in my sorority," she said.

Throughout March, CSUSB is holding a series of virtual events honoring the accomplishments of womxn in celebration of Womxn’s History Month. Nationally, Womxn’s History Month is celebrated during the month of March. It began as a local celebration in Santa Rosa, Calif. At CSUSB we intentionally spell womxn with an X as an objection to the patriarchal idea that womxn are an extension to men and the inclusion of all womxn go beyond just cis-women.
