Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: Since coming to Mac, I was constantly challenged to speak up about issues I believed were crucial to creating a safe campus environment and to stand up for myself and others like me. I fell in love with carrying out social justice at Mac and improving students’ lives, and I am grateful to be a part of MCSG. Every student has the right to be heard and live in a healthy, supportive environment.
I am here to work towards empowering POC, creating systems to support students with mental illness, educating campus on healthy relationships, making the CDC more accessible for first-generation, low-income students, and so on. (If you have questions or just want to hang out, please visit me at my office hours.)
