Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I hope to initiate as much positive change as I can. This change may start with a photo, a conversation, or an event, and I am grateful to be a part of it all. I believe that you can solve almost any problem through open communication, and so my goal for the future is to have many more constructive conversations with Fordham students.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

As the VP of USG I hope to continue to help our organization grow and I hope that we are able to care to the needs of as many students as possible. Within the next year I hope to offer support to every VP and senator within USG as we continue to work on initiatives that impact the student body.

If you really knew me, you’d know that…

I love graphic design and modern art

What is your favorite quote?

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” ― Frida Kahlo
