Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I recognized it as a club that empowers its members and, for lack of better words, enables them to get stuff done. Throughout my life, this has been the main task I seek to accomplish. I’ve always wanted to be on the front line of progress, constantly collaborating with my classmates and enacting changes that will benefit everyone. The United Student Government is easily the best medium to do this, so I joined it when I arrived at Fordham, and I intend to stay involved for as long as I am here.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I hope to enact changes that will break down barriers on all fronts of Fordham. I will do this by pushing for Hughes Hall to be a collaborative space for both colleges at Fordham, for printing to be free to FCRH students, and for resources to be shared more evenly for each school such as guest speakers and college recruiting events. I also intend to unify Fordham with our home, New York City. I will organize a summit for the respective student governments of each major NYC university. These actions will hopefully bring about renewed collaboration between the schools of Fordham, and the schools of New York City.

What is your favorite quote?

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it.” – Wayne Dyer
