Hi everyone! My name’s Amanda and I’m running for SAS Rep. In my past years at Penn, I’ve gotten involved in various micro-communities on campus. Being a latina significantly involved in the international community on campus, I aim to better integrate and involve the minority communities into the Penn student life through this position. Through my work with the Assembly of International Students (AIS), I’ve already been involved in discussions for potential collaborations between AIS and UA. Some of these include an event during International Student Orientation that will encourage international freshmen students to take part in Penn’s Student Government from the start, or a buddy system to pair international and domestic students in a mutually beneficial way. I look forward to using my experiences with the various communities on campus to collaborate with UA members on these issues, in addition to issues that pertain to the general student body.
