Why I ran

I’ve always prioritized giving back to the communities that have surrounded and supported me and our organization. I’ve witnessed firsthand the compassion, selflessness, and support that FASA members have to offer, and I really want to facilitate the translation of these values into action.

How FASA has impacted my college experience

Moving from Texas my freshman year, I felt both out of touch and out of place at UW. I found my second home in FASA; the people I’ve met and experiences I’ve had within this organization created a sense of welcome and tahanan for me. (also my grades are better because we were always at Ode lmao #StudentsFirst)

Fun Fact

I once met B.J. Novak (Ryan) from The Office and said, “Thank you,” when he asked me what high school I went to.
