What makes you a representative of the student body?

I understand both sides of the spectrum: the perspective and voices of those who voices aren’t usually heard and the voices of the majority.

What will be your top priority once elected?

My top priority once I get elected is to hear the programs that students want to see next year. 

What do you think can be improved on with USG and campus in general?

I believe that USG can improve on its connection and relationship with students. A lot of students feel a disconnect between themselves and USG.

How will USG handle the growing prominence of diversity-related issues on campus?                                      

I believe that if I’m elected, USG will handle the growth in diversity-related issues because I am a student who understands the diverse issues.
