My name’s Andy Arciaga, and I’m a third year transfer student majoring in Psychology and Brain Science and minoring Applied Psychology. I am beyond excited to ADVOCATE for you and SERVE you as your next OFF-CAMPUS Senator with ISLA VISTA PARTY!
My involvement on Katie Hill’s campaign and membership in Kapatirang Pilipino’s (KP) Political Chair has taught me the importance of the effects of intersecting identities especially on resource accessibility. I consider myself to be very fortunate to be here at UCSB where I feel like I belong for the first time in my life. I’m running as your Senator because I’m passionate in making our school a COMMUNITY that welcomes all identities and fosters academic and personal excellence.
