As Director of Internal Policy I will make ASUW accessible and transparent. I bring relevant experience as a former intern in the State Senate and Office of Governor Inslee, and my knowledge of the legislative process will make me a valuable asset in working with the Senate. Incorporating diverse points of view is the only way to create an institutional framework that will benefit any student that wishes to engage with student government.
