Hello Anteaters, my name is Josh and I will be your Student Talent Assistant Commissioner for the 2020-2021 school year. I am a third year double majoring in Chinese Studies and Political Science. Since quarantine started, if I’m not performing my basic needs of sleeping, eating, or studying; you’ll find practicing my new hobbies that I’ve accumulated to cure my boredom. They include cooking, gardening, reading, online shopping, and my favorite Chloe Ting. Beyond that, I’m a pretty normal college student who like many of you are ready to get out of this crazy dream. I’m always here, (literally in my house all day) so if your have any ideas or concerns, feel free to contact me. :)
The Vision for Soulstice 2021 is to provide students with a platform for original talent while also providing a diverse and inclusive programming that authentically reflects the unique voices that comprise UCI.
The Student Talent Commision will utilize various platforms to reach out to diverse talent.
The Student Talent Commision will engage in courageous conversations with prospective talent about the need to address unconscious bias and systemic bias as they create their content.
The Student Talent Commission will maintain ongoing communication with prospective talent in order to share timelines, deadlines, and sources of support.
The Student Talent Commission will utilize, and approve, the use of public funds to support programming delivered at Soulstice 2021 that honors and respects the unique voices and talents at UCI.
