What is your biggest goal for USG in the 2014-2015 Academic Year?
My biggest goal for USG this year is to make sure that students are aware of policies and programs that are intended to help them. I also want to make sure that students have more ways to contribute their ideas and opinions to USG

Other campus positions outside of USG: 
Photographer for the Observer, Member of the American Medical Student Association and the Pre-Dental Society, Future Camp Counselor for Camp Kesem, UH Hospitals Health Coach Volunteer

Prior USG experience / initiatives undertaken
Freshman Hitchcock Representative and part of the Academic Affairs Committee. Initiatives were focused on trying to increase accessibility of the SI Program.

What is the biggest issue you see your position having to face? How do you specifically plan on tackling it?
The biggest issue I see in my position is trying to increase awareness of programs available to students. I plan on tackling this program by increasing advertising around campus, sending out more fliers and having meetings outside of General Assembly that students can attend so that they can understand the current issues that we may be facing that current month.
