What’s your position/role in ASUWB?

Currently I am the Vice President for ASUWB. I support the President, help supervise the Senators, lead project/event organization, and fight to advocate the truth told by students.

What projects are you currently working on?

Most recently I have been working on ASUWB’s By-Laws and Constitution restructure for the next academic school year with fellow team members, looking for ways Admin/Staff can better communicate and support students, problem solving for better food options, and most importantly supporting the Senators so they can outreach successfully (they’re killing it, and working on some pretty awesome projects – Husky Pride, Greek life, diversity, outreach, etc.)!

What has your experience on ASUWB been like so far this year?

I’ve served on ASUWB for three years now. I started as an elected first year Senator, Sophomore Senator/Director of Public Relations, and now my current role as Vice President. To me ASUWB is taking the time to listen and then implement the student voice. If that may be leading new initiatives, fighting for them, and ensuring that change will take place on-campus. I’ve also been able to develop lifelong friends and see change make impact here at UWB! I definitely encourage students to swing by our weekly meetings that are on Friday’s from 5:45-7:45pm (location changes – email our team: asuwbteam@uw.edu).

In your opinion how does ASUWB help the campus?

UWB students wanted a field on-campus to participate in intramural sports. ASUWB was able to help advocate for it. UWB students wanted more student space. ASUWB was able to help advocate and fight for the ARC. UWB students wanted more food options on-campus. ASUWB was able to work with admin (still currently do) to bring the food trucks. UWB students wanted a safe place to embrace diversity and receive resources. ASUWB was able to drive the foundation of UWB’s Diversity Center. ASUWB listens to students to make impactful change.

If you could recommend one food item to the students that is available to purchase on the UWB/ Cascadia campus, what would it be and where can you find it?

I recommend giving Peach a try! Peach is a new delivery service that is pretty affordable, diverse, and time sensitive. If you’d like to find more info you can find it here: https://www.peachd.com/uwbothell. **not a sponsored ASUWB or UWB option**
