Alumni Series: Satomi Kikuchi, Making the Most Out of CARP

Alumni Series: Satomi Kikuchi, Making the Most Out of CARP

My name is Satomi Kikuchi. I graduated from California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology-Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Exercise. CARP only became an official club at CSULA for my final year as a student, but because I’ve been able to stay involved as an alumni, I’ve been with CARP for about a year and a half now.

As CARP CSULA grew bigger and I became more involved and had more opportunities to witness the impact CARP had on people’s lives, my perspective about it changed completely and my motivation for being involved became more personal. I saw so much beauty in the genuine relationships CARP students create among each other based on honest and open conversations about things that matter. I realized just how valuable it is to have a place where students can voice their own opinions about things that are important to them.

My name is Samuel Tamura. I am a first year student studying Physiology at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis).

CARP has brought me an immense joy and conviction to work hard with my life of faith and with my education, and I want to share the organization and truth that drives me every day. Knowing that I am influencing my fellow CARP members to think deeper within themselves and about these topics continues to excite my conviction to go forward with my efforts.

Chapter Leader Spotlight: Marcus Orlando Fuller, Jr.

My name is Marcus Orlando Fuller Jr and I'm a CARP Las Vegas member. I think many people exaggerate when they say that “so and so saved my life”. Still, I think that's the only way to describe the immense and deep impact that CARP has had on me. Over the last two years, I have had countless other experiences with the CARP members, each one showing me time and time again that the culture we have in CARP is one of family and love. Even though I have an older sister and three younger brothers, I believe that once I met CARP, I finally understood what it meant to have a family.

“I can honestly say this is what CARP does for its members: clarify the division within ourselves and, more importantly, offer, with open arms, solutions to this problem and an understanding that we are all in this together. CARP has created an atmosphere where I’m able to discover more about my purpose and give others this same hope.”
