STATEMENT

COVID has changed our entire society by developing a new set of issues and worsening old ones. One of the most affected demographic is us, college students. For many, college represents a pathway that can lead us into a better life. Many students don’t have a safety net to fall back on, and instead depend on institutions like UCSB to help facilitate their career goals, and to establish a network of peers and mentors. It is unethical to simply strip away this opportunity to students, especially when many issues may extend far beyond the walls of UCSB. It is the responsibility of SAG to speak up for those in tough situations. I know what it's like to struggle, and I am willing to fight for each member of the student body. We all have something to bring to the table and provide a lot of value to the UCSB community.
