I am a Communications Studies Major with the hopes of working in Human Resources Management or something similar. I do not really know too much yet as it is my first year in college. However, a goal I have set for myself is to apply and transfer into a UC or private school, preferably UCLA, UCSD, USC, or possible Cornell. A little cool fact about me is I absolutely love ramen. It is one of the most spectacular foods in the world to me. Of course, you are more than welcome to debate that with me if you think otherwise as I am also on the Speech and Debate Team here at ELAC. In fact, I encourage you to always argue for your beliefs as long as you can back it up with facts because no one should be able to tell you how to think. But anyways, more importantly, I am here to represent you or any ELAC student so please feel free to come talk to me at any time because connecting with people is the foundation of creating understanding between one another. I look forward to representing you on the ASU Board and I will do my best to come up with solutions to any problems that might affect any ELAC student. If you are interested in asking me anymore questions regarding ASU or just want to get to know me a little better, I will usually be in the Students Activities Office (Room F5-212). I am looking forward to representing you because everyone deserves to express themselves, and I will make sure your voice is heard.
