The VRA encourages a diverse board to represent the countries, cultures, religions, and ethnicities of Village residents.
Esther Ramer - Chair
Hi Village Residents! I am a graduate student, a parent, and a village resident since 2015. I grew up in the country in northern Wisconsin, and navigating urban life and academia has been a challenge for me. I joined the Village Residents Association in order to help foster a sense of community and to advocate for policies that help student parents succeed in their careers.
Sara Amiri - Board Member
Hello University Village! I’m Sara. I’ve been a resident here at the Village since the beginning of 2017. As someone who has greatly benefitted from the opportunity of being able to live here, I would like to give back and contribute to the improvement of the community. In my free time, I love spending time with my bunnies, finding yummy pastries around Berkeley, and hunting for cute stationery.
