  • Cheryl Fok ’21
  • SEEDS @Schools Coordinator
  • I'm Cheryl, one of this year's SEEDS @Schools Coordinators! I'm an international student and junior from Hong Kong, so I'm super excited to get in touch with Portland's community and culture through SEEDS' work. My prior experience has been working with foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong, so I'm looking forward to participating in a whole new form of community engagement with new people! SEEDS stuff aside, I'm really just a nerd with a sweet tooth and the proud owner of a big fluffy Samoyed, so I'm always happy to talk about anything community-/food-/pet-related.

  • Kyla Hayworth ’21
  • Reed Community Pantry Coordinator
  • My name is Kyla (they/them) and I'm a Reed Community Pantry coordinator! I'll be a junior this year, which is interesting considering that I was really just a first-year yesterday. You'll see me around campus a lot because I live in the Student Union - come drop by and say hi to my cat, Bean (no guarantees that he won't bite or scratch you, also no guarantees that he won't just hide). I help run the RCP because I care about food justice on this campus. Reed is hard enough with an empty stomach.
