Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I want to help make Fordham, which is already a home to me, a safe space for all students. I want to do this by uplifting minority and LGBTQ+ voices, often overlooked both on and off campus, in order to give these students a platform to express their concerns. It is important to me that we ensure the university is continuously advocating for — and more importantly, implementing — inclusive programs and messaging.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

Along with student outreach and transparency, I want to help Fordham connect and work alongside more local Bronx outreach programs in order to mend the relationship between Fordham and the Bronx.
