As part of our elections coverage, The Lion is sharing responses from candidates about the following questions:

  1. What motivated you to run for this position?
  2. If elected, what would your goals be?
  3. What is something you want to fix at Columbia? How would you plan to address it?
  4. Any additional comments you would like to share with voters?

Below, you can find the candidate(s)’s unfiltered responses to help in deciding who you choose to vote for.  The Lion has yet to endorse any candidate at this time and the views below do not necessarily represent the views of our team. For more information, email

1. I want to get more involved on campus in a meaningful way. I am very sociable/open person, and I place a lot of importance in Networking. I figured I can use that and contribute to helping our student body access and expand our Networks, starting with Alums.

2. One of my main goals is to strengthen FLIP alumni relations and incorporate them to our Alumni Mentorship program. FLIP Alumns are wildly successful in their fields, but tend to lose touch with Alumni Networks at times. Bringing them back into the fold will impact the success and motivation of student, especially current FLIP students, immensely and add a lot to our community here.
3.  Columbia is a relatively large school on a very large campus. This can make it difficult to foster a sense of community. It is not so much a problem, but it is something that we can work to improve. We can do so by encouraging students to go to things like sporting events more, and having more events like Glass House Rocks and small concerts on low that brought students out of their rooms or Butler.
