Office Hours: TBD

 

Being a part of Associated Students the past two years has allowed me to not only be an advocate for students, but also learn about how A.S. can be improved. As IVP, I hope to make Associated Students more accessible, especially for students who have only experienced a remote UCSB. As your 71st University Owned Apartments Senator this year, I have helped our community navigate through recognizing the outstanding and extenuating circumstances of students with marginalized identities.

I have advocated for the recognition and support of the physical, mental, and social impacts of online instruction during the pandemic, and also the condemnation of all acts of discrimantion and harassment of marginalized groups. I hope to continue to foster an environment that supports and uplifts all UCSB students. Whether it be over zoom or on campus. I want to build and strengthen our Community.
