Peter Trejo

5th Year | Sociology Major

Hello everyone! My name is Peter Trejo and I will be serving as your Academic Affairs Vice President for the 2019-20 school year. I am proudly from Vista, California which is in North San Diego County and a little interesting fact about myself is that I have two dogs named King and Ace as well as two 1957 Bel-Airs which each have, you guessed it, two doors. I am excited for this upcoming year and I am open to any suggestions, comments, or concerns so please feel free to email me or stop by the Academic Affairs office! My biggest goals for the office are to create a positive impact on the academic journey students undertake here at UC Irvine, especially those who come from underrepresented and marginalized communities because I believe it is important as a student leader to represent those who are underrepresented in higher education. As well, I want to ensure that students from disadvantaged backgrounds have academic resources and support accessible to them so that our office can contribute to students who need it the most. Thank you for showing interest in what the ASUCI Office of Academic Affairs is all about!

Sungmin Park | Chief of Staff
3rd Year | Criminology Major

Hello! My name is Sungmin, but you can call me Sung! Words can’t express how excited I am to be serving as your AA Chief of Staff for the 2019-2020 school year! A few facts about me: I like to watch basketball (#Lakers4Lyfe) and MMA. My favorite animal is a Honey Badger. Over the summer, I got into gardening *I like it but I’m not very good at keeping plants alive 🙁 * 

Having been a part of this program since my first year, I believe each commission has tremendous potential to assist students from all aspects ranging from academic resources and programs to a friendship that will last beyond the walls of campus. As the Chief of Staff, I understand the tremendous responsibility of this position and having been able to humbly  experience what it was life to an intern and commissioner, I plan on working directly with each commission so they can carry out their mission to better student experience at UCI and making sure that we hold ourselves accountable for our actions.

Robin Allas | Chief of Staff
4th Year | Public Health Policy Major

Hi friends! My name is Robin Allas and my pronouns are she, her, & hers. I have gratefully been a part of this office since my first year as a Visions Leadership mentee, a Visions mentor for the next two years, and am blessed enough to be ending my fourth and final year as one of your Chief of Staff! We should all be proud to represent the Office of Academic Affairs, as our mission of helping other undergraduates academically succeed is such a fulfilling opportunity to take part in! 

On campus, I am a part of this year’s cohort for the Public Health Honors Research Program. I am also serving as the ACTIVE coordinator through UCI’s Cross Cultural Center, and am involved in several of the cultural Filipino Organizations as well! I enjoy personal fitness on my free time, but also ironically am a bit of a hardcore foodie as well. I have a passion for Hawaiian/Tahitian dancing, fashion, makeup, and face masks. I could talk about dogs all day and recite all of the High School Musicals by heart (lines and choreography included!). 

I hope you are all as excited as I am to make this year as great as it can be. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you tremendous souls and learn about our abilities as we tackle this office’s tasks together!

Lannhi Nguyen | Assistant Chief of Staff
4th Year | Biological Sciences Major

Hello hello! My name Lannhi Nguyen and I am super excited to be working as part of the  Chief of Staff for AA this year. I have been a part of Academic Affairs for the past two years, serving as an intern and then a commissioner for the Speaker’s Commission. I am grateful for everything that this office has taught me and I cannot wait to see and help every commission achieve all of their goals for the school year. 

My goals for the office this year is to create a safe space for every member. I hope that by doing so, every member of the office will not only find a friend in each other, but have a second family within the office. In addition, I hope to help the office improve their programs that not only benefit, but also empower students on campus. 

On a less serious note, some fun facts about me!

My dog named Atlas has my whole heart. I also love anything water based such as swimming or going to the beach.
