Elia Wiese

BSW Intern

While attending San Diego State University, Elia has appreciated the opportunity to work towards social justice in education. Elia was a representative of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee for their Department; in this position, they worked to enshrine these values in the Department’s policies and curriculum. At the start of their second year, Elia became a tutor for the Educational Opportunity Program on campus, acting as an academic support for students of marginalized identities. Building on this experience, Elia worked as a college mentor at Wahupa Educational Services, a community-based nonprofit organization that serves low-income and first-generation high school students.

After graduating from SDSU, Elia plans to pursue a Master’s of Social Welfare and become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). They aim to become a therapist and work with children, as they continue to advocate for the welfare of children. Elia is passionate about working with students, in part, because of the unique challenges that students face. Elia feels lucky to be able to build community and support students as they empower themselves.

Elia loves creating art, experiencing nature, and spending time with friends. They would rarely be found without an earbud in their ear.
