Cahron Cross ’23. Pre-COVID, Cahron was an avid hugger of friends. Now he resorts to zoom-mojis, socially distant hand waves, head nods, and hidden smiles behind polyester masks, but there’s love behind it just the same. He has dabbled in numerous creative fields from hip-hop music to speech and debate, and his knack for self-deprecating humor is only eclipsed by his ineffectiveness in writing bios.

Regina spends a lot of her time meditating on the relationship between humans and the natural world, as well as (in no particular order) trees, poetry, clawhammer banjo, trailrunning, boatbuilding and love letters.

My name is Alinea Lei Ann Tucker (they, we, she) and I was born in Long Beach, California. I took time away from Stanford in 2018 and began learning in community with traditional midwives, doulas, and abortion providers. Now I'm a coterminal graduate student in Earth Systems - Environmental Communication. I have deep roots with the African & African American Studies Program and the Institute for Diversity in the Arts here at Stanford. You can call me Mama Crab -- it's how I'm known in community. I talk about old old stories, bodies, water, soul-recovery, and spacetime. I should name that I'm creole and can't help but hoodoo (you do?). I'm here for your fullest expansion.
