Who Am I?

I am no one special.

My name is David Riviera.


Bachelor of Science, Theatre, Communication, and Youth Studies — University of Minnesota, CCE, Inter-College Program

Master of Education, Youth Development Leadership — University of Minnesota, CE+HD, School of Social Work (Anticipated August 2018)

About Me

I am a student at the University of Minnesota. I started in 1994, have a Bachelor of Science, and will finish a Master of Education in August 2018. I hold an Advanced Certificate in Equity & Diversity from the University Office of Equity & Diversity.

My primary research topic is youth suicide prevention, awareness, and response. I am creating the Suicide Prevention, Awareness, and Response Network as my final graduate portfolio. I have experience in residential life and student housing, and am a lifetime inductee of the National Residence Hall Honorary. I am also a member of The Society for Collegiate Leadership & Achievement.

I am a disabled working adult, which means I have abilities, but cannot meet the full demand of a standard 40-hour work week. I personally and carefully crafted a health care team, and participate in medical research studies.

My professional work is dedicated to nonprofits with environmental- and youth-focused programming. I own a business, Oz Technology Company GBC, a certified SBE and LGBTBE® public benefit corporation; I am a NWS Skywarn® spotter and NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™.

This propaganda has been carefully crafted to make you believe I am a particular type of person. Your interpretation may vary.
