I have lived in the East of the world and now the West. I came here with nothing and now I manage multiple businesses while simultaneously being actively involved in student committees. Throughout my journey I have seen and learned how important my voice and service to students can be in the community representing my fellow students, especially international students, who have been overlooked. This is what motivated me originally to get involved in student leadership. And this is what motivates me now to be that voice for students and why I feel I am competent to run as Vice President of the ASUW. I feel the ASUW deserves a strong voice for students all around and that should definitely be inclusive of the international community.

Previously, I have been the Legislative Affairs officer and chair of the Student Advocacy Committee to help get students involved in the legislative process. One of my big events was getting students down to Olympia to meet with their legislators and bring their voice to the table. I think this is important work and needs to be continued here at UW more than ever. As chair of the Student Advocacy Committee I was involved in getting students registered to vote. As an international student I see the value and power in it even though I am unable to do so here in the United States. Last year, I immediately got involved and joined the Legislative Steering Committee to help shape our legislative agenda. It was great to know I was adding my voice to the conversation. This year I have the honor of sitting on the Student Technology Fee Committee to bring more technology to more deserving students and clubs on campus. Allocating millions to just causes that push our research university further and more competitive is something I take pride in. If elected I promise to work as hard for all communities regardless of background.
