Makayla Boucher ’23, one of the newest members of the Athletes of Color Coalition, was drawn to the organization by her own experiences and through the leadership of Johnson and Foster.
“As one of two athletes of color on the softball team, I wanted to seek ways in which I could connect with and support other athletes across campus. Also, through the initiatives and leadership that I saw in my first year, I knew that this was an organization that I could stand in solidarity with,” Boucher said.
Boucher credits the Athletes of Color Coalition with helping her network with other student-athletes of color across campus, coupled with giving her a voice to speak on racial and societal injustices outside of her team. In the future as a member of the ACC, Boucher would like to use her status as an Asian-American to shine a brighter light on challenges faced by the Asian-American student-athlete community at Trinity.
