STATEMENT

Hey y’all!
I’m Connie Huerta(she/her), a 3rd year, first-generation Nicaraguan, Promise Scholar student studying Sociology and Black Studies with a minor in Spanish from Hayward, CA and I am running to be your next AS Off-Campus Senator with Isla Vista Party! Throughout my time at UCSB I have crossed paths with many passionate and strong-willed students that enhance how amazing this school can be. Everyone on this campus has something to contribute, a voice that deserves to be heard, and everyone is here for a reason. Gearing through higher education is difficult enough and there is no reason why anyone should feel alone in the process. That being said, the university could use improvements to ensure students have a much more enjoyable experience, particularly for communities traditionally marginalized and alienated, as this should not be a discouraging environment, but one that provides support for success and growth
