The Haven Community
The Haven Community is a
student organization formed
to better society and
encourage growth in community.

What We Do

Our Mission Statement

The Haven Community strongly believes that everyone deserves emotional strength and their voices to be heard. We believe that emotions range in many complexities and the distinctiveness of feelings belonging to a person are worthy. The Haven Community is strong in certifying that the leadership and information that gets pushed out to our viewers are for the whole consideration of society, community, and the well being of everyone.

Celebrating Pride Month

The Haven Community celebrates Pride Month and acknowledges the accomplishments made up until this point, while also recognizing the work that is yet to be done. The Haven Community continues to call for action for LGBTQ+ communities while ensuring our mantra and ethos of unifying and building each other up, with an emphasis to communities still being denied equal treatment, inclusion, and equity and stigmatized in society.

The Haven Community: Inside the Teenage Mind

Listen to our podcast where we dive into the teenage mind! Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google, Amazon Alexa, and many other platforms!

When considering the emotional circumstances of the complex mindset, we often forget how to pour out. In simpler terms, we're secluded and closed and purposely forgetful. In the back of our minds, we know we need to reach out but our arms and legs wrap around each other instead in that position of ``no, I don't want to talk about it``. Sometimes, we got to just throw ourselves. Literally. We need ourselves to take shame out.
Nathan Lim


Perhaps it’s neither unfortunate nor a blessing that we can so easily be overcome with emotion, whether for years or in a matter of days, that we can abandon ourselves in a single second. Without rationality, we put all the negatives in front of us, expecting a perfect life or even a potentially bearable life, forgetting the rest of the world in front of us.

Chief Writer

I feel lost– lost in my sorrow, lost in my sadness, lost in my anxiety. Everything seems blurry during those days, but a beacon of light comes from those around me. They make me forget; forget that I am lost. Relying on these people is what has gotten me out of the depths of hell. These feelings wont dissipate easily but depending on those close to you can help in ways unimaginable.
Sai Brinda Kotthru

Executive Vice President & Staff Manager

You can’t change how others act and they may just have different ways of expressing their emotions so it’s not worth being disappointed in yourself based on them. You should just commend yourself for your efforts and remember that in the long run, you are loved and valued and shouldn’t be disappointed in yourself.
Katie Trieu

Chief Financial Manager

Happiness comes from yourselfーinternal happiness. What this means is that you yourself has to be satisfied and happy with who you are and what you’ve become as a person mentally and physically. Indeed, this is a tricky state of mind to achieve, but it is doable. Once you are happy with yourself, no one can touch you. You’re basically invincible. Happiness is reachable, it just takes time. Everyone has their own paths to their ultimate happiness.

Words can't express how grateful I am for all of the people who've been there for me. They showed me how amazing it feels to have good friends by your side, who will support you no matter what. I don't know if they know it, but they really impacted my life in the best way possible.

We don’t understand the value of life, of human interaction, of all the beautiful things we have in front of our eyes until they’re gone.

Our Initiative

We know that the teenage society has more open access and comfortability when it comes to digital mediums. So, The Haven Community team continues to curate content that is relevant and easily accessible.

Why We Do It

It’s simple. Our organization is run by the same age as our intended audience. We gathered together as a team in recognizing that our society needs work and we are devoted to building change little by little.
