Hey Gauchos, this is Bruce, a 2nd year economics and political science (hopefully) double major!
As an international student, I’ve served as a student representative at large at AS IAC and have successfully led the process of writing joint letters and petitions to UCSB with other international students to de-triple dorms and maximize social distancing. My unique background enables me to experience diverse college life and fight for Gauchos’ needs from multiple perspectives. Although the vibe and tolerance of our community are among the best I’ve seen, I want to be honest with y’all-: this position is not about emphasizing what we are already good at.; This position is about fighting for greater justice, transparency, equality, and recognizing what we can change!
