Hey y’all! My name is Ivan Montik. I am a proud first-gen college student, born and raised in Springfield, IL and now living in Dunster House (D Haus best house!). My interests are greatly rooted in educational justice, and this year I am writing a thesis and working as an after-school teacher off-campus. On campus, I focus on facilitating inclusive, welcoming spaces, both formally and informally. Outside of those activities, I enjoy writing poetry, spending time with friends, FaceTiming people from back home, and reading.
