Meet Our Staff
Estevan Parra, Higher Education Administration and Leadership, M.A.
Responsibilities: Provide encouragement, support, resources, and education to meet the needs of the LGBTQ+ community.
Interests/Hobbies: I love dancing! Fun fact: I have been dancing professionally for over a decade. Secondly, I cherish Sunday BBQs with my family (mom, dad, 10 siblings, and 15 nieces and nephews). Lastly, I am always open to learn and travel the world with my partner.
Why do you do this work?: In the last ten years that I have spent at Fresno State, I have noticed the great work that has been completed to make this institution an inclusive and welcoming space for our LGBTQ+ students. I also recognize there is an achievement gap. I do this work with passion and dedication to support in reducing the gap and fight for those students who feel like their voices are unheard or invalid. You matter

Loves to travel as much as possible with
her partner and her pup, eat all the local food,
and drink all the coffee. Unashamed bad dancing.
Why do you do this work?: Helping others is
what I was called to do, and advocacy is the perfect area for folks to use their voice to make change!
Educating others about identities/experiences is
a large part of the job, but I also learn something new almost everyday which is awesome and beautiful!
