Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I, and the people who helped elect me, believe Fordham should play a more active role in improving the student experience. People want to see Fordham address housing, commuter, safety, and social concerns. I want to advocate for that change on behalf of our class and USG is the place to do that.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

My goal is for Fordham to implement an Asian Studies program this year. My hope is to work with the Commuting Students Association to push Fordham to provide commuters with Metro cards. I plan to talk to administrators about the lack of access to clean water within the residence halls and on campus. On a lighter note, I am looking into local BX artists that we can invite to campus for concerts 🙂

Where are you originally from?

Bay Area, California

What is your favorite quote?
