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

Candidate Statement: 

My name is Anna Hollister, and I am excited to run for the position of Director of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies. Throughout this past year, I have seen incredible dedication from our students and faculty in enriching our (online) community and working towards a better Sacramento State – despite the challenges that COVID-19 has presented. Now, I believe is the perfect time to engage in solidarity. I plan to help bridge the gap between the student body and the Board through intensifying our focus on student outreach and engagement. 

        As a transfer student, I’m aware that many of you have never met or seen me in real life. However, I cannot express in words how much I care about each and every one of you, and how passionate I am about getting the opportunity to represent 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.

        I, personally, have learned a lot this past year. Above all, I have understood the value of human connection. I would be honored to earn your vote so that, together, we can create a better connection between us all.

Candidate Statement: 

My name is Sloane Vanciel, and I am running to be your Director of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies. I am a third-year Political Science Major and a member of the GE Honors Program. On-campus, I am heavily involved with the College Democrats, participating in outreach, fundraising, and advocacy. I served as the Vice President of the SSIS Joint Council in the 2019-2020 school year, giving me insight as to the role of the SSIS Director and the needs of the Department. I participated in multiple internship programs within the Department, including the Panetta Congressional Internship and the Sacramento Semester Program. I am an intern in the Legislature, working on issues important to students and the community.

My experiences give me a unique perspective on what being an SSIS student entails, and how to make the department serve its students to the best of its abilities. In this position, I would focus on making sure all SSIS students are aware of the numerous opportunities available to them, including scholarships and internships, and expanding the resources available. I further want to facilitate cohesion between the SSIS clubs and student organizations, through an active SSIS Join Council,

I’m running for you Sac State; to hear your concerns and opinions, and advocate for you. I have a passion for education and student success, and this position will allow me to make fundamental changes that students want and need. Thank you for your consideration, and I hope you vote for me on April 7th and 8th.
