Goals For 2021-2022:

My goals to to streamline a successful return to campus. I want to focus on the overall well being of students and find ways to ease anxieties of coming back to in-person lectures. I would like to create a list of possible accommodations professors should consider when students get sick. I also hope to create legislation that will gain back the trust of students towards student government. Within the school of Social Science, I hope to create a community that is confident in their professional growth. I will work with DAC to create events centered around professional development and academic achievement.

Why did you join ASUCI?:

I joined ASUCI as a response to distrust towards the student government. While being highly involved within the School of Social Sciences, I was made aware of student concerns within campus.

Personal Facts/Passions:

I’m very passionate about politics and am a proud member of the College Democrats at UCI. I actively follow political news and current events. I’m interested in voting rights, redistricting and democracy reform and have worked to turn my interest into action. Before starting at UCI, I helped shape the district lines used in last year’s school board elections for two of the largest school districts in my native Marin County, and I currently serve as the youngest member of the Marin County Redistricting Commission.

Goals For 2021-2022:

I hope to continue the difficult but important task of reforming the ASUCI Constitution and other ASUCI governing documents to make ASUCI more transparent and accountable to the student body. I want to work to protect students’ political power both within UCI and at external governments so that we can be heard and represented.

Why did you join ASUCI?:

I joined ASUCI last year to fight for policies that benefit all UCI students. I served as a Legislative Affairs Staffer in the Office of the External Vice President and helped advocate for students at the state and local levels. I ran for Senate last year so I could fight for students and for badly needed reforms to strengthen transparency and democracy in ASUCI.
