Candidate Statement:

Hello Hornets! My name is Samantha A. Elizalde and I am joined by Joseph W. Sais. Together we are running to be your next ASI President and Executive Vice President.

This past year has presented challenges to our campus community like no other and has highlighted the importance of equitable representation in all spaces. This pandemic exasperated the struggles that students face at Sacramento State and throughout the CSU system; from issues of access and resources to dealing with racial injustices in our country.

Returning to campus will not be easy and the transition back to in person should be safe for all. We will continue to face challenges with the unknown, but it is crucial that the student voice is amplified and is brought to the table where decisions are made to find unified solutions.

During my time at Sacramento State, I have been able to serve students in various capacities. I ran for the ASI Board of Directors two years in a row, and served as ASI Director of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies during the 2019-2020 academic year, ASI Vice President of Academic Affairs in fall 2020, and now ASI Executive Vice President. While being on the board, I have dedicated my efforts to gaining a better grasp of the challenges our students face. Successful initiatives that I have been a part of are the Fall 2020 Convocation, advocating for Credit/No Credit, and campus voting efforts. I have also advocated for access to food and housing through collaboration, drafted a plan to minimize campus food waste to increase sustainability efforts, and increased communication between students, faculty, staff, and administration through committees. My passion is being able to amplify voices and helping students succeed in higher education.

Joseph currently serves as the ASI Director of Arts & Letters and has a passion for showcasing and empowering the voices of Sacramento State. Joseph has spent his time focusing on initiatives that would help students succeed in their academic careers. He has also pushed for spaces for the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ community to have much needed conversations. He collaborated with the PRIDE Center on The Allyship Program to provide space for honest discussions. He has been involved in several antiracism committees such as the A&L Antiracism Work Group, the Antiracism Work Group for Theatre & Dance, and SPACE ( Student Performing Artists Creating Equity.) Through the Student Social Justice and Equity Council, he co-created a fall forum on police presence in the community. He has even successfully advocated for an additional class section, to help students graduate on time. Joseph’s main goal is providing students opportunities to succeed through collaboration and unity.

As President and Executive Vice President, our number one goal is representing and amplifying the student voice. We are running to ensure that students are being heard, are able to return to campus safely, provided with the necessary resources, and are able to overall succeed throughout their time at Sacramento State.

We will be Leaders Who Listen.

Candidate Statement:

Hey Hornets! We are Michael Beller and Francisco De La Torre III, we are running to be your next ASI President and Executive Vice President. Currently, we’re active in our campus community by serving in ASI Lobby Corps and as the Vice President of Academic Affairs respectively. A vote for us would ensure that you the students are first. Our platform prioritizes providing equitable resources for those in need and expanding opportunities for we the students. We want to ensure all Sac State students voices are represented and amplified by our position as President and Vice President.

   Hi I’m Michael, a third year majoring in Political Science, minoring in History, and running to be your next ASI President. I am a first-generation college student and have served in several leadership roles at Sac State. I’ve served as a Philanthropy Chairman of Pi Kappa Phi and led the Interfraternity Council as President where I advocated for more risk management. Most recently I served as Resident Advisor for University Housing Services at Riverview Hall. During my tenure as a RA I was a leader to a variety of students both traditional and transfer students, who I provided guidance and introduced them to our resources. If elected your President I would ensure you all a leader who will be innovative and creative to find the tools necessary for student success.

    I’m Francisco and I am striving to become your EVP. I’m a third year Political Science major, with a Global Engagement & Leadership minor. My current ASI experience as Vice President of Academic Affairs has taught me representation and because of this I would be honored to continue to represent you as EVP. Additionally, my time as President of the Environmental Student Organization showed me what it takes to have effective communication that produces results. Similarly, serving on the UNION/WELL Board of Directors as a student representative, I am familiar with how our campus departments operate and how to effectively represent student voices in these spaces. Finally, I intern at Sacramento City Hall where I research policy. As the grandchild of immigrants, it was clear to me early that I needed work twice as hard to become a successful first-generation student. To do so, I chose to be a part of Sacramento State’s Honors Program which has allowed me to represent my community on campus. My various levels of campus involvement have prepared me to serve you.

   Our platform will make sure that the student voice is always first to breaking down any barriers on the pathway to academic and career success. We’re aware that during the COVID-19 pandemic student success, access to basic needs like food, housing, internet service, and mental health resources have been challenged. For this reason, we are determined to advocate and support basic needs efforts that will provide students the fundamental necessities. Most importantly we will ensure Sacramento State remains on track for a secure reopening, prioritizing students and members of our community’s safety. A vote for us puts the Students First!

Candidate Statement: 

My name is Lovepreet Kaur and  I am running for Vice President of University Affairs. I become a part of ASI in 2019 and since then learning new things every day, meeting new people, and improving my network. I have been serving on several university committees and clubs. By serving ASI for two years, I understand the importance of being involved with campus and stay connected with people. We learn about our field/major through classes but to understand life, we have to deal with the world outside the class. Sacramento State gave me many opportunities to improve myself and one of them was getting elected for ASI VPUA 2020. This position gave me a chance to work on ASI priorities like holding donation drives, helping students managing their finances, and providing resources to students to make their school year as easier as possible. By serving in the ASI VPUA position, I got a chance to know students closely and tried to understand the issues they face and the improvement that need to bring to make their student journey worthwhile. By electing for this position again, I will be meeting with students and will make sure to find the right committees of their interest that can work with their schedules as well. I will provide my full support to students because after all ASI is a student government, run by students and for students. I firmly believe I am the most qualified candidate because the relationship I have made with students will motivate me to keep moving forward to support students. Please vote for me on April 7 and 8.

Candidate Statement: 

My name is Sadia Ashraf and I am running to be your next Vice President of Academic Affairs. My involvement with ASI as the Director of Undeclared Students has made me realize my passion for helping students. I brought forth concerns pertaining to my constituents to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies where we worked together to come up with solutions. I made sure resources were readily offered on campus, with myself being easily accessible to students as a resource. My life in many ways has changed this past year; I learned skills that will be helpful for when I do eventually become the VPAA. I grew more confident in myself, and met some amazing people who encouraged me to strive for the best. I brought change to the ASI board by being able to provide a different perspective on things. As a first generation student who is a minority from a low income immigrant family, I feel that my perspective is very unique, but also representative of the student body. It is important for me to recognize my background and advocate for issues that I see as a problem on campus. The support and expertise I have been granted by professionals and family alike has made me the person I am today. This year, I would like to Pay it Forward by dedicating my time and energy to becoming the next VPAA to advocate for student rights and improving college success and accessibility for all students. I am committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and diverse campus for all students. So allow me to Pay it Forward by electing me as your next VPAA.

Candidate Statement: 

Hello Hornets! My name is Nataly Andrade, and I am running for Director of Social Sciences & Interdisciplinary Studies. In my first semester at CSUS, I joined two committees to get involved with ASI. The main reason why I chose Sac State was to get involved with ASI and help serve the student body. Since I am only a freshman, I don’t have much experience in working within ASI. However, in high school, I was a part of my school’s student government and student council. I was Senior Class President, and I know about the responsibilities of holding a government position. I was also one of three students who served as a student representative in our student council to discuss items such as the school’s budget and student discipline. I worked with a team to plan and organize events, fundraisers, and school dances. I was a part of the weekly board meetings to discuss how we can help serve the student body. I am now also working at a Non-Profit Organization called “In The Making” that helps foster youth, undocumented immigrants, and low-income families by providing essential living necessities, job training, and mentoring. I have always had a strong passion for helping people and making my community a better place. If you vote for me, I promise to not only fulfill my responsibilities as Director of S.S.I.S but project the issues that students bring to me. I will dedicate my time and energy to making sure your voices are heard. Therefore please vote for Nataly on April 7th and 8th. Thank you

Through increased committee action, I plan to assemble a collaborative student effort that will focus on reaching out to all Sac State students and ensure every one of your voices is heard.

        I currently am a member of Sac State’s Lobby Corps, have served as the captain of a collegiate basketball team at my prior college, and previously worked with Sac State’s Elections Ambassadors – but I believe that my great work ethic and unwavering passion for leadership and activism is what makes me most qualified for this job.
