Why did you join USG?

After joining the Operations Committee as a freshman, I found that my passion was helping other people achieve their goals, whether it be putting on a small event or creating an entirely new organization on campus. On USG E-Board, I have been able to help facilitate communication between the student body and the faculty/representatives that can give them the resources they need.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

As we explore existing resources on campus, my goal is to fill in the gaps for various student needs. All students, especially club leaders, need access to mental health resources, as they carry the weight of event planning, budget allocations, and overall creating the best environment they can for club members. Additionally, we must expand upon the accessibility of existing clubs: by creating more opportunities for inclusivity training regarding sexual orientation, gender expression, and culture, Fordham can provide a safe home for every student, regardless of their identity. Finally, the Operations Committee is working on streamlining the New Club Process to better serve each individual applicant.

What is your hometown?
