Hello! My name is Holly Marie Woods. I am a third year Political Science major at the University of California Irvine. I am currently the Chief-of-Staff of the Internal Vice President’s Office of ASUCI. I am particularly passionate about this position because I get to work with some of UCIs most passionate student leaders as well as serve the student body on an intimate level. The Office of the Internal Vice President focuses primarily on issues which affect students day to day -starting a conversation that is often overlooked- issues of access and affordability of basic resources. I have had the pleasure of being part of ASUCI since I started my academic career here as a freshman during the fall of 2015. My first year I was an intern in the Elections commission. My second year I was a deputy in the elections commission as well as an intern for Retention and Recruitment. Outside of ASUCI, I have worked within housing in such positions as an Attendant and a Resident Life Assistant which were both in Middle Earth Housing. I am currently a Community Assistant at Vista Del Campo Norte. My passions lie directly in education- I hope to help this campus grow and challenge the norms created by our school administration in order to improve conditions for our students, staff and faculty.

Hurro Hurro! My name is Sanjanaa Ellur and I am a third year Biological Sciences major at the University of California, Irvine. I currently serve as the Chief of Staff for the Office of Internal Vice President, ASUCI. I was the Food Security Commissioner for the academic year 2016-2017. Through this position, I have worked to provide resources for my fellow Anteaters to engage in critical conversations about food security and have helped develop a long-term strategic model to increase food access and security at UCI. I am currently leading an initiative called Zot Out Hunger at UCI which is a program that would redistribute excess meal swipes, guest swipes and flexdine dollars to students who are in need of them but cannot financially afford it. Throughout my time at UCI, I have successfully co-hosted UCI’s Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, addressed critical parking issues, made parking available for 24 hours during finals week for students as an ASUCI Campus Task Force intern, and helped successfully pass the crucial Food Pantry Referendum. In addition, I participated and served as a mentor in the Summer Multicultural Leadership Institute (SMLI), served as the co-president for the Scientastic club, worked as a marketing intern for the California Higher Education Food Summit 2016 (CHEFS) hosted at UCI, served as the marketing lead on the Food Pantry Initiative, and have been serving as a student representative on the Bren Events Center Advisory Board since Winter 2016. As a Biological Sciences major, I am currently working on a UROP project, “Therapeutic Effects of Idebenone on Mice with VCP Disease”. Along with some passionate activists on campus, recently I started an organization called the South Asian Student Union (SASU) and I currently also serve as the Vice President for it. It has been my passion to dedicate time and energy to working for and advocating for students’ interests on campus.
