Disability rights champion urges Cal State LA graduates to fight for justice

Haben Girma, Commencement Speaker 2019

Haben Girma, a disability rights advocate and the first deafblind graduate of Harvard Law School, encouraged students in Cal State LA’s Class of 2019 to break down barriers and fight for justice. Girma, a champion for equal opportunities for people with disabilities, delivered an uplifting keynote address on Monday during the Commencement ceremony for the Charter College of Education at Cal State LA. “You’ve developed many skills and talents over the years. Please use your skills to remove barriers. Even if it’s a small barrier, it will make a huge impact for other students, teachers and everyone else who’s struggling,” Girma told hundreds of students who filled the rows of seats at the May 20 afternoon ceremony in the University Gymnasium. “Inclusion is a choice. The barriers won’t dismantle until we take the steps to remove them—and I hope you’ll all join me in making our world more accessible.”

Jenny Chow Chiappe Commencement Success Story 2019

Jenny Chow Chiappe likens pursuing a doctoral degree to running an ultramarathon. These races, which are even longer than a marathon, test your endurance, resilience and determination—similar to weathering the grueling years leading up to a Ph.D. Chiappe, a 34-year-old Lincoln Heights resident, once ran a 50-miler in the mountains of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. She had to navigate the route with only tags on trees marking the terrain. Her body fatigued. The end, at times, was nowhere in sight. “Of course, you are anxiety-filled,” she recalls. “You don’t see the finish line until you get closer and closer and when you finish, it doesn’t really feel real. When you do cross, you’re delirious. I think that’s how I’m going to feel when I graduate.” Chiappe will culminate her educational journey on May 20. She will graduate with a 3.9 GPA and a Doctor of Philosophy in Special Education. The degree is offered through the Cal State LA Charter College of Education/UCLA Joint Doctoral Program.

Alumna's school unveils Nipsey Hussle memorial basketball court

Alumna's school unveils Nipsey Hussle memorial basketball court

Cal State LA alumna Hattie Mitchell's school in South Los Angeles unveiled a memorial basketball court in honor of rapper and businessman Nipsey Hussle. Hussle was shot and killed on March 31 outside his clothing store in Hyde Park. The school, Crete Academy, worked with Veniceball, a community organization in Venice, to create the court, which is adorned with a painted mural of Hussle by artist Gustavo Zermeno Jr. "For our kids to look at Nipsey and to see everything he's done, what he was able to accomplish and how much he gave back to the community is huge for them ... because he looks like them. He grew up where they grew up. He's the epitome of everything that they want to be and aspire to be," Mitchell told CBS Los Angeles. Mitchell, who founded Crete Academy in 2017, received a bachelor's degree from the Urban Learning Program in Cal State LA's Charter College of Education.
