Q: Why did you choose to be on the Activities Council?
A: What I find appealing about the council is the opportunity it presents to be me more involved in the politics of club formation. The council also provides the experience of managing a budget.
Q: What do you see the Activities Council as?
A: The council is a medium by which students can create clubs. It also acts as a manager of activity and event-related funds.
Q: What clubs are you involved in, and how did you get involved?
A: I am involved in Mixed Identity Student Organization (MISO). I revived this club as a place for mixed-race people to organize and socialize.
I am also involved in Independent Thought, which I started to discuss films and to provide resources for indie filmmakers. I joined the Latino Student Union (LSU) to connect with my cultural heritage, assist in event planning and to discuss issues concerning Latinos.
Q: Give a brief description about yourself and what you like to do for fun?
A: What can a brotha say? I am a junior at Western via Decatur high school in Federal Way, Wash. I am the product of a multicultural love affair, and I couldn’t be more proud. I respect and cherish my family.
Since coming to Western, I have been involved in radio, mixed-race advocacy, Latino issues and filmmaking. Finding the comedy in everyday situation is what keeps me going. I enjoy writing poetry and raps. Last but not least, I am completely addicted to MySpace.com.
