Why did you join ASUCD/Exec? After spending a quarter in Washington, D.C., I was highly motivated to become involved in local/university government. Because I do not have previous ASUCD experience, I am very thankful that Josh & Adilla took a chance on me to be there C.O.S. It has been especially humbling to understand and see how much work is involved behind-the-scenes to make our university so great!
