How did you get involved with ASUW?
As a first year, I joined Student Senate as a Hall Senator, the following year I was Chair of the Committee on Oversight. Being involved in ASUW has allowed me to build better leadership skills and learn from a wide range of students!

What does your job entail?
In relation to Board, I am Student Senate’s liaison and present and advocate for decisions made by the Senate.

In Senate, I schedule forums to promote student input in outside decisions and serve as parliamentarian during meetings.

Eventually, I hope to go into policy drafting or political consulting to help create a better life for future generations.
