Lee Roy Esposo
Hello! My name is Lee Roy. I am originally from Southern California and moved up here to Spokane to pursue my Doctorate in Pharmacy. I’m a current 3rd-year student at the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and I graduate in 2021. I am a lover of food and prose. I also love meeting people and making connections. The best part about working in the Diversity Center is meeting people from all walks of life. Come down and say hi! I’d love to hear your story.
Hello, I’m Tara! I am from Seattle, WA. I attended Whitworth University for my pre-requisites, and now I’m here at WSU College of Nursing. I love meeting new people, exploring different cultures, and building community. I’m excited to be apart of the Diversity Center team this year and would love to meet you!
My name is Vanessa Tuy, and I am from Lynnwood, WA. I attended WSU Pullman and received my Bachelor’s in Biochemistry, and I am here at WSU Spokane, going into my third year of the pharmacy program. I love diversity because it brings many views to a situation and helps the community grow. My hobbies include playing video games, crafting, and playing with my cats.
Hi, my name is Sharan Kaur! I am originally from Yakima, WA, but I made my way over to Spokane for the WSU Nursing program after attending WSU in Pullman for my pre-requisites. Diversity and culture have always been a huge part of my life. It is important to embrace the differences between us; otherwise, life would be a lot less interesting. I love learning about diversity by traveling and immersing myself in different cultures and exploring the world around us. I am very excited to be a part of the Diversity Center team and look forward to meeting new people and learning new things!
“Being open to trying new things, though sometimes daunting, is the best way to broaden the world around you.”- Humble the Poet.
My name is Ciera Sitton, and I grew up right here in Spokane. I did my undergrad in Pullman and am glad to be back. I am a student in the Doctor of Pharmacy class of 2023 and am beyond excited to be serving this campus as part of the Diversity Center. I hope this opportunity allows me to get to know everyone a little better. I love bringing people together, getting outdoors, attempting to be creative, and sushi. Please stop by anytime!

International Student Life Student Coordinators
Hey everybody, my name is Jeremy Li, and I am from Hawaii. I attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa and received my bachelor’s in biochemistry from there. I am here at Washington State University Spokane, attending my second year of the pharmacy program. I have grown up surrounded by diversity. It has become an integral part of my life and a part of who I am; constantly being exposed to many different cultures and different types of people have taught me valuable lessons in patience and acceptance. I will be serving as the International Student Life Student Coordinator. I would love to meet you, so please come by and say hello! My hobbies include video games, reading (LOVE Harry potter), and baking.
Hello! My name is Puneet Kaur. I was born and raised in Punjab, India, but moved to Spokane 3.5 years ago. I am pursuing the Doctor of Pharmacy program (Class of 2022). From India, I graduated with a Master of Pharmacy (Quality Assurance) and Bachelor of Pharmacy. I then got fortunate to work as a research fellow in a Federal government-funded research project on diabetes. Diversity has a huge impact on my life as my father lives in Kuwait for work and mother in India, and my brother in Sydney, Australia. I also serve the Court as a social and medical Interpreter for Punjabi and Hindi languages. It enriches my experience as I get to meet different folks and learn about diverse life situations. Student Diversity Center will be hosting many educational and fun events, so please come by and say hi!
