Maika Moulite is a Miami native and the daughter of Haitian immigrants. She loves writing: books, think pieces, journal entries, neverending lists, you name it. When she's not scribbling every random thought into her notes app, she's sharpening her skills as a Howard University PhD student. (That means more writing.) Her research focuses on representation in media and its impact on marginalized groups. She’s the eldest of four sisters and loves audiobooks, fierce female leads, and laughing.
Maritza Moulite graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s in women’s studies and the University of Southern California with a master’s in journalism. She’s worked in various capacities for NBC News, CNN, and USA TODAY but her favorite roles were Head Start literacy tutor and pre-k teacher assistant. She loved working with young people so much that she is now a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania exploring ways to improve literacy through children’s media. She clearly couldn’t get enough of school. Her favorite song is “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire.

Chloe Charco is an English major and aspires to become a teacher in secondary education, with plans for graduate school. She is also a student assistant with the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity Programs. Additionally, her favorite color is black.
One Book, One CSUF Program Overview
Over 40,000 different stories comprise our CSUF community, making us one of the most diverse campuses in the country. To celebrate the power of our many stories, we are happy to launch our third annual One Book, One CSUF program, a part of our Titans Together: Striving for Justice, Equity, and Inclusion initiative. The One Book, One CSUF program will help to create an inclusive campus environment through conversations and engagement among all members of our community. Each year, members of the CSUF community choose a book that explores themes of diversity, inclusion, and equity. Throughout the year, students, faculty and staff will come together to share stories, invite dialogue, challenge perceptions, and build community.
ALL students, staff, faculty, and administrators are encouraged to participate in the One Book, One CSUF initiative. Readers will have plenty of opportunities to engage during the 2022-2023 academic year, including numerous chances to receive free CSUF swag!
