Kahlil Greene has made history by becoming Yale first black student student body president.
Greene is a Maryland native and is currently preparing for his junior year at the prestigious school.
In an interview with Fox5DC, Kahlil stated that he decided to run to “amplify the voices of undeserved communities on campus, especially students of color.”
Kahlil continued, “So being the first Black president, I feel like I’m in a position when I can really do that.”
His election, he added “symbolizes the progress the university has made over the years,” but also adds there is still so much to be done.
“I think that we can be a more diverse and inclusive campus and I’m grateful for the role that I’ll have in making that happen,” Greene added.
