Why did you join USG?

I hope to make the voice of my class LOUD and heard. Individually, we are full of amazing ideas and talents. Collectively, the sky is only the limit to what we can accomplish. I would like to provide that platform for my peers: to ensure that we are heard. Change can only come when the hearts and minds of the people come together. I am also hoping to bring about more transparency between the student clubs and government with the whole school. I feel like often times there are great events or opportunities around campus, and yet few to no people show up to them. I want everyone who walks this campus to get the whole Fordham experience. This includes trying to bridge the divide between the commuter students as well as resident students. Together as one voice, one mission, and one family, we can make this University the best it can be.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

More connections with the neighboring community/ giving students the opportunity to make connections with the environment around them.

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