Candidate Statement: 

My name is Veronica Boulos and I am running for your Director of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies! I am a great fit for this position because of my passion and experience. As the vice president of the Arab Student Union, I’ve developed valuable leadership qualities and I genuinely enjoy the celebration of culture. I have served on the Student Academic Senate and currently sit on three ASI committees; City Ambassadors, Lobby Corps, and Appellate Council. Sitting on these committees has shown me the importance of getting involved and having a voice in the decisions being made on campus. It has shown me that students are often unaware of these conversations and decisions being made about their future and experience at Sacramento State. It is important that students are properly represented and advocated for, especially when they are unaware or unable to do so themselves. I am not running for this position for myself, but rather for all the students at Sacramento State. I am running for this position because every student here at Sac State deserves to be heard, represented, and validated. So this April 6th and 7th, go out and vote! And remember, a vote for me is a vote for progress!

Candidate Statement: 

Hello fellow SSIS students! My name is Alec Tong (he/him), I am a student majoring in Political Science, and I am absolutely thrilled and humbled to announce that I’m running for Director of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies. Arriving at Sac State on campus for the first time since the pandemic, I recognize that many students have very little understanding about the services that the ASI Student Government delivers. Being on multiple ASI committees made me realize the abundance of resources that the university provides and the lack of knowledge from fellow students to access them. Serving as your advocate and representative, I am committed to ensure fellow students receive the most out of your tuition; including scholarships, financial aid, student employment opportunities, academic support and many more. With prior experience working in my local city council, and having successfully advocated for changes and improvements within my community. I’m more than confident that my skills gained from these experiences will help me in advocating for more opportunities, while promoting additional campus resources to everyone in the College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies. As your Director, I will continue my work on developing better transparency on Sac State services to students and improve on delivering efficient, effective, and accessible resources within SSIS. It would be a tremendous honor to serve all of you, and I look forward to working for you this coming fall. GO HORNETS!
