Elijah Bennett (he/him)

is a USC Student Navigator working for Rise. He is currently a sophomore in Public Relations at the University of Southern California. He started working for Rise in September of 2022 and is excited to help other students from diverse backgrounds as a Student Navigator. His interest in Rise came from his background working with several different service organizations that provide aid to youth and as such is excited to dedicate his time to helping out a similar underserved demographic once again. Having seen people in his own personal life struggle simply because they didn’t have access to resources he would like to help others avoid those problems. Outside of that Elijah is interested in dancing and swimming and one of his favorite things to do on a Friday night is to spend the night in, either alone or with friends, and binge a new show on Netflix with lots of popcorn and/or instant ramen and ice cream cones.
