Hi y’all! My name is Jocelyn Evens and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a 4th year Campus-wide Honors Collegium student double majoring in Criminology, Law, and, Society and Psychological Sciences. I have been an intern for the Food Security Commission for the past 2 years, and I am looking forward to be one of the commissioners this year.
The past couple of years as an intern has been more rewarding than I expected them to be. I get to help students and read their testimonies about how the actions of the commission has helped them. Being able to make an impact in others’ lives has allowed me to feel more connected to the compass, which it is easy to feel alone on such a large compass. The people that I have met in this commission are such caring and passionate individuals who have become close friends and people that I can count on. I decided to become a commissioner because I feel that my experiences have prepared me to keep making a change while leading a new group of intern.
This year, the commission will be working closer with other commissions under the Office of the President. This is a change from the past years, but I think that it is for the best that we have the opportunity to work with other commissions on basic needs. I look forward to the new faces, and maybe some returning faces, to the commission as well as working closer with other commissions.
