I am a fourth year Political Science major. I have been in ASUCI since freshmen year and I am beyond excited to be External Vice President for the 2018-2019 school year. I am thrilled to work on advocacy projects because it is a dream come true. I remember coming into the EVP Office my freshmen year and finding sure a deep passion for the issues being brought to my attention. I have since been in the Election commission, Retention and Recruitment Commission and the Chief of Staff of the Internal Vice President. Outside of ASUCI some of my interests include, eating bananas, working at Puerta del Sol as a Community Assistant and listening to rap and indie music. Also, I love comedy – but keeping it wholesome is most important to me, always trying to find to ways to self care and replenish myself. Please feel free to email me to set up an appointment to meet or drop by the ASUCI to see if I am able to speak with you. Since my schedule is frequently changing an email would be the best way to catch me!
The Office of the External Vice President primarily focuses on advocating for the most marginalized voices on UC Irvine’s campus. The goal of the office is to uplift the voices of folks who traditionally have been excluded from spaces of higher education. The External Vice President Office works to promote student advocacy on a local, statewide and national level in order to bring awareness to the importance of affordability, accessibility, quality, safety and diversity at UCI. The EVP office organizes around tuition, worker solidarity, and advancing human rights, the EVP office hopes to address injustices and support advocacy work and legislation that further challenges these issues.
This year our Office will focus on local efforts. It is my observation that traditionally the office will focus on national efforts but I would like to turn the focus on our immediate Anteater community and work with on campus organizations to bring a cohesion on what the community needs and work from the group up. It is my mission to bring the ASUCI Office of the Internal Vice President and Office of the President to my side as well for these efforts.
