Year: sophomore
Party: Revamp
Major/Minor: Spanish/ Italian

Why did you decide to run for the Associated Students’ Government?

One of the main goals of the Revamp platform is to increase campus security.

This will make the (students) feel safer on campus, thus engaging the students to be involved and ensuring their success.

In one sentence explain why students should vote for you.

Returning ASG Members

What was the most significant change you have made or were involved in making during your time in ASG?
I worked with the Student Organizations Team to implement the use of OrgSync in our student organizations at CSU-Pueblo. With OrgSync, students will be able to find more information about campus organizations a lot easier, while the organizations will be able to communicate with students and other organizations with less difficulty, as well. I feel that by being able to communicate and finding more information, students will be more drawn to campus involvement.

What has being involved with ASG taught you and how can you apply that knowledge to this term?
By being involved in ASG, I have learned about teamwork and group dynamics which will enable me to express my views and empower the students to be active on campus.
