Hi everyone! I am so excited to be running as your Director of Programming! Through my time as the President of TEDx, a highly active event-focused RSO here at UW, I have extensive experience with dynamic programming. Executing meaningful events requires expertise in funding, marketing and liaising between different groups, all through the lens of empowering marginalized voices and sharing their stories. I have dedicated myself to these principles and plan to reflect those values in the Director of Programming role through the following:

  • Work with the proposed Office of Inclusive to connect RSO’s to accessibility resources, ensuring ableist event practices do not continue on our campus
  • Create a centralized event database for RSO’s to increase public awareness of events, including the accessibility of events
  • Connect RSO’s and Student Senate to increase involvement and representation in Student Senate
  • Collaborate with the SAO and RSO’s to create an infrastructure for expanded initial RSO contact and trainings upon the creation of a new RSO in fall quarter

TEDx of UW Curator 2019-20

Spark Northwest “Solarize” Initiative Intern 2018-19
