Mission Statement

The Academic Resources Commission is a brand new commission that aims to provide free exam/class materials (i.e. Scantrons, Green Books) to students, as well as establish a rental system for electronics (laptops, calculators, etc.) in order to lessen the financial burden of attending a university. In addition, the commission researches & informs the student body of various scholarship opportunities.”

Description:  Hello! I’m Amberly and it is an honor to serve as one of your co-commissioners of Academic Resources! I am from 626 and I believe it is accurate to say that is where all the best boba is! I am a big foodie and going to the 626 Nite Market is an absolute must during the summer time. As much as I love eating, I also love to stay active by going to the gym and swimming! 

I first got involved in ASUCI my first year in Spring Quarter as a mentee for Visions Leadership and I served as a mentor/intern for the next two years. Through Visions Leadership, I was able to implement projects to improve campus life which I never thought was possible as a student. From there, I hope to take the professional and teambuilding skills I’ve learned and showcase them to this new branch in Academic Affairs- Academic Resources. 

With that being said, I am supppperrr excited for what the school year has to bring and can’t wait to work with my commission to put our best work and foot forward. I hope to learn as much as I can from my commission and together I want to be able to implement some very exciting, yet beneficial projects for the study body! As this is a new branch, there will be trial and error, but with that also comes with new learning experiences for everybody and to grow from them.

Major: Public Health Policy, minor in Management

Description:  

Hello! My name is Gabriela but you can call me Gaby! I was born in the beautiful island of Java in Indonesia and moved to the 626 area in elementary school. I’ve lived there ever since, so I’m super familiar with the area and can give you the best recommendations for food and boba!!  

I’m very excited and honored to serve alongside Amberly as the first commissioner for the Academic Resources Commission. Because this commission is newly established for the 2019-20 school year, my goal is to establish our presence on campus and inform UCI’s undergraduate student body of all the resources available to help them, from free testing materials to scholarship opportunities. By the end of the school year, I would also like to establish a laptop and calculator rental program. I think that it’s important for the school to give back to students as much as possible, and my goal is that no student will be unable to perform the best that they can academically due to financial burdens. 

Aside from school, my favorite things to do are traveling, eating, and shopping– in that order. This year alone, I was fortunate enough to be able to explore New York, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, Chicago, as well as travel internationally to London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. 

If you have any ideas you want to see implemented by the Academic Resources committee or if you have suggestions for a restaurant I should try or place I should visit, feel free to message me! Ciao 🙂
