I am beyond honored and excited to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year at the beautiful University of San Diego! I am thrilled to be able to serve as your student body President for this upcoming year, and I cannot wait to begin doing some great work in order to make your lives here amazing! I have been lucky enough to work with various student organizations, administrators, and offices on campus, and I know I will be able to use what I have learned from them over these years to be a great leader for the USD community.
This year’s AS Team is an exceptional one! Our team has been working since May to brainstorm ideas and put into action some initiatives and changes to campus that will make your lives as students undoubtedly great. Our goal is to promote USD Spirit, connect all students to each other more, make student life more exciting, promote Changemaking initiatives on campus, enhance professional development, and more! Plus, this is just the beginning—throughout the whole year we will be dedicated to making USD a place of exceptional academics, student life, and social justice that produces some of the top graduates in the nation.
One of my favorite quotes is, “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club,” (Jack London). At USD, we want our students to be inspired! My hope is to help provide all students here with the tools they need to be inspired to become changemakers, knowledge seekers, fighters for justice, and opportunity-takers. USD is an extremely beautiful campus, but the true essence of our school’s beauty lies in its creative, diverse, and driven student body. You all deserve a unique, inspiring, and incredible student experience!
As your elected student leader, I promise to always serve the students and USD’s mission. If you ever see me around campus, please say hi and tell me about what you would like to see here! I am always here to help with whatever you need, even if you just want to sit down and have some coffee!
