Hello Fellow Hornets My name is Maanvee Mehrotra, and I am running to be your next Director of Undeclared Students. To be able to represent students at large, one has to have a positive influence and dedication to the success of fellow students. I discovered these traits that encouraged me to run for office through my experience as a student assistant for the Office of The President, vice president of International Student Life, president for the International Friends Association and vice-chairing the ASI Finance and Budget Committee. I have a natural inclination towards helping and encouraging others to succeed. We at Sacramento State are always encouraging students to push their boundaries to discover their interests. I am aiming to continue these efforts for undeclared students by connecting them to correct resources which would include academic advising, reaching out for necessary guidance and holding events with different entities. This would help them tailor their decisions which would, in turn, help them to find a major to pursue. I believe myself to be the most qualified candidate because of my experience as an undeclared student, which led me to branch out to the resources on campus. If elected, I will work towards the growth of my fellow students and become the voice that is by the students and for the students. I understand the struggles of being a student and I am certain if we all work together as a team we can go far, in the desired direction. Let us all win together. Undeclared, not Underestimated.
My name is Sadia Ashraf and I am running for Director of Undeclared Students. I am part of the Honors Program Committee here on campus in which I serve as the Social Events Coordinator to help plan events and help with logistics. Before that, I served as the Honors Representative. I was also part of the ASI Alcohol Advisory committee where I helped make important decisions regarding the issues on residential life on campus and drug abuse. Through these experiences, I truly learned not only about the importance of quality leadership but also learned what it means to navigate life as an undeclared student. There is often a social stigma on being an undeclared student, yet the possibilities to explore career opportunities are endless. My first step as the Director of Undeclared Students will be to highlight the importance of career explorations by hosting events and workshops pertaining to different interests of the students. In addition, I will make certain that students have the right resources and support in order to be successful. Finally, I will ensure that the Dean of Undergraduate Studies is regularly informed about issues and concerns pertaining to Undeclared Students. I love Sacramento State. I cannot express the amount of unconditional love and support I have received from everyone, and I believe it is my time to pay it forward. I sincerely hope you make the right decision by voting for me since I believe I am the most qualified candidate.
My name is Sabrina Fernandez and I am running for Director of Undeclared Students. I work for Sacramento State’s Admissions & Outreach office as a graphic design student ambassador and am currently expressing interest in the Graphic Design program. As a member of the GE Honors Program, I am exposed to boundless opportunities that allow me to stay involved with the campus community. Being an undeclared student, I realize that many students are unaware of the many resources offered to them to aid them in the journey to finish in four. I know how important it is to make decisions in college, especially when we are unsure about the path we want to follow. In this position, I will advocate resources to the students and empower them to voice their needs in order to become future leaders. I will begin by researching to meet the needs of current students to capitalize on what ASI should fund. In doing so, we can create events and fairs that cater to their interests and enhance their overall college experience. Furthermore, I will also highlight the various tools that ASI offers like employment, local, state, and federal advocacy, and committees in order to broaden perspectives and support the concerns of students. By voting for me, we will open windows of opportunities that enrich student life at Sacramento State.
