I've been involved with SUA and student government since my second year here and I genuinely enjoy learning about other peoples perspectives and how their personal stories and experiences has led them to where and who they are now. I also absolutely love meeting other students and showing them the beauty in the juxtaposition of our campus having a forest a few miles from the coast, which is why I enjoy giving new and potential students tours and a huge reason why I chose to come make my life here at UCSC. I also spend way too much time near the coast, either in the water or just overlooking the ocean, so if you're ever near the Seymour Centre it wouldn't be surprising to find me there. On my own time, I like to balance any stress that I have with painting and doodling, spending time with my sorority sisters, or planning trips all over the world.

Besides that little bio, I'm excited to do what I can to help my fellow Banana Slugs succeed.

My biggest projects this year will be:

  • Working to open up a library space for 24/5 access to students
  • Expanding the Class and Lecture Availability Student Survey (CLASS) to show what we as students really need from our University in order to succeed
  • Working with the different services on campus to see how we can best accomodate the needs of students, on both a campus and individual level
