Name: Tamara Lash


One time I was challenged at OSU was…

In planning out my time between internships, courses, assistantship, and self care. I felt that I always was stretching myself in a million different directions. It took me a couple of terms to truly get into the rhythm of grad school and find a schedule that made the most sense for me.


The people who helped me get to where I am today are…

My parents and sister, they supported me throughout my internships and always took the time to make sure I was okay. I would also say my partner was really instrumental in making sure I got my coursework done by designating homework Sundays and staying up with me when I needed to finish a paper. Whitney Archer, was a massive support at OSU as a CSSA Alumn she helped with recommending classes, tips for scheduling, and provided a lot of emotional support throughout my grad school process.


After graduation, I am…

Looking for jobs! My dream is to work in a role that centers the advancement of social justice, equity, and inclusion. Whether that be as a cultural resource center director on a university campus or working in the equity and inclusion department for a corporate organization I know that I want to be doing work that is grounded in those principles.
