Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I believe that I can act as a representative of the student body of my class and fight for their demands in the senate. I believe that it is important to have a representative who truly believes in what the people who elected them want. As such, I joined USG to represent my classmates and act in their best interests for the upcoming year. 

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

My main objective this year will be campus food reform. I am well aware, as so many students have had it known, that the food in Fordham can be considered sub-par, to say the least. The fact that it has turned into a joke for most is indicative of the need for reform in our cafeteria. I also hope to expand our options beyond what is already available, and bring the food from the community around us into campus, further integrating ourselves into the Bronx. 

Where are you originally from?

Paris, France

What was your top song of 2021?

Doomsday by MF DOOM

What is your favorite thing about Fordham?

My favorite thing about Fordham would have to be the people. I noticed the first day that I got here how everyone seemed so thrilled to be at Fordham. I feel like a part of a unique community of people who share the same love for this school.
