Why did you join USG?

I joined USG for the opportunity to represent the student body to the best of my ability and to create positive change on campus.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I hope to strengthen communication between USG and the student body and be more transparent overall with what representatives are working on and how the process works. Throughout the next year, I would like to streamline communication using USG’s social media outlets and allow students to have easier access to information and representatives. 

For dining, I hope to work with Aramark to provide healthier food options and more sustainable practices.

Where are you originally from?

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

When I was a freshman in high school I named my dad’s virtual reality start-up (and it still goes by that name!).

My favorite place on Fordham’s Rose Hill campus is…

Eddie’s, preferably 70° with a light breeze.

What is your favorite quote?
