It’s ya girl Kellie McManamon and I am a third-year student double-majoring in Communication and Sociology. I am excited to be running as YOUR next College of Letters & Science Senator!
As a Senator, it is my goal to create a better relationship between Associated Students and the student body. I want to create an atmosphere where students freely present ideas to enact change and also come in to laugh at relatable mapache-gaucho memes together. As a first-generation, Chicana student I relate to the struggle of navigating through campus resources. I want to make that process easier and ensure that it isn’t just my voice at the A.S. table but YOUR VOICE.
