Robin Galas attended Mills College from 1995 - 1997 and was a member of the crew team for nearly her entire tenure. During her first year, she served as co-captain of the novice team. The following year, she was awarded the Arthur Ashe Scholar Award recognizing combined excellence in academics and athletics by students of color. She began working at the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) two and a half years ago in order to further justice and equal rights for all LGBT people. She is currently the Director of Operations at NCLR. She identifies as a bisexual, biracial (half Thai, half Polish-American) woman and understands the barriers that LGBT athletes of color often face both within the LGBT sports movement and athletics at large.
