Why did you join USG?

I joined USG as a freshman because I love my community and I want to make it an even better place. Since joining, I have found USG to be the most incredible aspect of my Fordham experience and one which allows me to advocate for what I’m most passionate about.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

As VP of Health and Security, I intend to advocate for holistic student health —the mental, physical, and emotional well being of each student at Fordham. To do this, I plan to partner with CPS and Public Safety to effectively reach the wider student body. As Chair of CSM, I intend to continue the work of my predecessors in combating cultures of violence and silence on our campus. Additionally, I would like to collaborate with other clubs and committees on campus whose missions intersect with CSM’s and create relationships of long-term collaboration so as to connect more deeply with Fordham students.
