Chelsea is a fourth year undergraduate student at the University of California, Santa Barbara majoring in Classics with a Language & Literature emphasis. She has served as a Resident Assistant (RA) for three years in UCSB’s campus-owned housing and knows all too well the strain on college student workers to maintain a well-balanced college experience. Brandwein is most excited to learn about the experiences of other RAs through this project and to take a critical look at the emotional and risk-oriented side of labor. To this project, Brandwein brings skills in journalism, lifestyle writing and blogging and a deep appreciation for the sacrifices students make to include employment in their undergraduate experience.
