John Sunil Kaleekal
Graduate Assistant for Special Projects
His interests lie with serving the LGBTQIA+ Asian American community in Chicagoland/Midwest from a public health perspective, particularly in mental and sexual health. He is an avid fan of animation and keeps up with the newest cartoons. He is currently fond of Steven Universe, Twelve Forever, and Summer Camp Island. One of his favorite memories growing up in Kansas was going on a trip with his parents to see the world’s largest ball of twine. His favorite museum in Chicago is the MCA.
He is actively engaged with organizations in the city such as Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) and is a core leader for Invisible to Invincible (i2i): the Queer and Trans API Pride of Chicago. He hopes to better serve the midwest Asian American community through public health practice. He loves working at AARCC and the community it provides.
