What is your favorite part of UW? The culture being built here, one hundred percent. There’s so much energy and drive/determination around here. I remember visiting as a high school student and noticing how everyone seemed to walk around campus with purpose, as if they were on a mission.
How did you get involved with ASUW? I actually was not fully involved in ASUW until the end of my third year when one of my acquaintances contacted me about this position. It was such a unexpected call but they saw my leadership work and positions in HS and decided to message me. Eventually, I got more involved in the campaign and with the win came some invaluable life-long friendships which I cannot be thankful enough for.
What does your job entail? As Director of Campus Partnerships, my job entails the liaisoning to multiple on-campus as well as off-campus entities that regard well-being, campus safety (and it’s alternatives), and student improvement. This position also introduces the concept of interdisciplinarity that would allow me to practice collaborating with other members within our community to become more progressive and enact change. These motivating active actions were what inspired me to run for the position in the first place.
What are your goals for the future, beyond UW? Hopefully pursue further schooling and become an educator/work in the field of education!
