At Nexus:

I joined Nexus as the North Star Black Cooperative Fellowship Summer intern and now am a program assistant. I support programs across Nexus, including the North Star Black Cooperative Fellowship. Support I provide includes cohort engagement and development, communications and research and technical support.


My name is Keliyah Perkins and I am an alum of Gustavus Adolphus college. I graduated with a Philosophy major with minors in Film and Media Studies and English. I am here because I believe that the problems that exist in this world cannot be tackled from just one angle, that if we want radical change we must advance from all sides. Therefore, becoming aware of varying perspectives provides me knowledge of the issues that still need to be challenged. In my free time I write creatively and listen to podcasts.
