Hey there, y’all!
My name is Diego Reyes (he/they) and I am a Queer, Latinx student leader from Bakersfield, California. I am a 1st year Pre-Biology major and I am running to be your next On Campus Senator!
Since attending UC Santa Barbara, I have experienced the burdens and beauty that come along with being a queer, Latinx student and coming from a low-income family. My experiences have paved the way for my passion towards making higher education affordable for all students and that we all feel SAFE and VALUED on our campus. As your next On-Campus Senator, I will work to REPRESENT our amazing communities and ensure that EVERY STUDENT has a voice on our campus because our identities are what make our campus beautiful.

Currently involved in A.S. Student Initiated Recruitment and Retention Committee, a committee that focuses on helping low-income, underrepresented students who are striving for a higher education, but lack the resources to do so.
