Why did you join USG?

Coming from Venezuela, I learned the face of bad policies, false representation, and fake speech. I want to implement policies that are contrary to what I saw, helping my community thrive and interact better. I want to share the ideas of the student body, exploring better ways to communicate concerns and issues.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I hope to bring an international perspective to the USG, representing those who were virtual for the last year. I also wish to communicate better what the USG is trying to do, having a direct connection between students and representatives in order to improve mental health and solve concerns.

Where are you originally from?
