The VRA encourages a diverse board to represent the countries, cultures, religions, and ethnicities of Village residents.
Mae Ramirez - Board Member
Esther Ramer - Chair
I am a graduate student in the Classics Department. 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.
I have experience in many different fields: dairy farming, gardening, construction, and education, to name a few. I hope to use my variety of experience to help understand and advocate for improved policies in housing, transportation, sustainability, and social support networks.

Sydney Ikegami - Operations Coordinator
Hello all! I am currently a third year Political Economy and Sociology major at UC Berkeley. Outside of school, I am a mentor in the club OASES and am part of a research lab that focuses on privacy. In my free time I love to bake and craft!
I started working as the operations coordinator in August 2018. Since then, I have learned a lot about the village and am excited to keep on learning more and hopefully better the village as a whole.
