Fall Senate Elections: Meet the Candidates

Freshman Class Representatives

Sasha Anyal

Hi! I’m Shashi Anyal and I’m running for freshman class representative. I’m from Denver, Colorado, and I’m a biology major. I love spending time with friends and family, working out, reading and going on hikes. I’ve always been interested in leadership clubs and was a part of a high school senate. Voting is very important and it’s important to get your voice heard. I want to represent the freshman class and help to make their first year memorable.

Anjouni Singh

My name is Ajouni Singh and I am a communications major from San Diego, California. I would like to be elected your freshman class representative because I am eager to start our freshman class right. I want to be there for our class to help and listen. I have two years of experience from student council, and was president of my school’s culture show. I am anxious to take this experience and help increase communication between our class and the school. I would like to improve our school, and hope to represent the freshman class in a positive light.

My fellow freshmen, I’m Ariel Ling and I need your vote. I hail from Palo Alto, CA. I love to play sports, sing, dance, and most of all be a leader in whatever I do. In the past I have been on student council for two years as well as held the position of freshman class president and spirit commissioner. I know that if you vote for me I will make sure the voice of the freshman class is not only heard, but also listened to. It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got the LING!

Junior Class Representatives

Javier Peraza

My name is Javier Peraza and I am running for junior class representative at USF. I recently moved to San Francisco from my hometown of Dallas, TX where I was doing legislative organizing for America, a continuation of President Obama’s campaign. As the son of an immigrant, I was raised to believe that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. I believe that as a student we have a responsibility to this school and should leave it in a better place. As junior class representative I will work for the junior class by fighting for things that will enhance their experience at USF.

Bryan LaDow

Live with a conviction for life and take an active responsibility in shaping your scholastic future, while making the most of your time as a Don at the University of San Francisco! It is my honor to campaign for your vote during the start of this amazing new endeavor at USF. My name is Bryan LaDow and as your new Junior Class Representative, this year will be best yet. Whether you’re a student in the Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Law, or Nursing, we all have a hand in how the building blocks of our education are set. I ask for your vote. Let me, Bryan LaDow, be the voice of our Junior Class.

School of Arts Rep

Alden Cruz

Hey everyone, I’m Alden Cruz and I’m back and more determined than ever to provide a great student experience aas your representative for Arts and Sciences. The great thing about the USF community is, unlike most other universities, we have a heart and soul. Our community of students understands that we never live in a bubble. We always make it a point to serve the city, the world, and each other. And at the very heart of the university is the Arts and Sciences. Help me harmonize the social and academic mission of this great institution. Thanks for your support.

School of Nursing

Anthony Rivera

I am Anthony Rivera, a nursing student here at USF coming from American Canyon, CA. I would like to be a part of Senate because I enjoy the environment and community that it is all about, and I want to exceed my goals and accomplishments from the last time I was elected. I also want to take home what last year’s School of Nursing Representatives did and build upon that. With that said, remember to vote 9/20-9/23, and let me be your voice for the School of Nursing.

International Rep

Nicole De Sousa

Diversity, multiculturalism and global aawareness are issues that I believe to be highly important in this culturally diverse world we live in today. I am Nicole De Sousa, an international student from England, and I believe that I would be an excellent voice for the international students here at USF. Coming from a diverse background myself, I am able to communicate and relate to students of different backgrounds. My overall vision for Senate is to unify all the students as well as promote multiculturalism and the celebration of different cultures.

LGBTQ Representatives

Porshay Hart

My name is Porshay Hart and I am from East Palo Alto, California. I have openly identified as homosexual since I was 12 years old. I would like to be a senate member because I feel that the LGBTQ community is under-represented and I want to be that positive representative. At my high school I was the founder of the poetry club and I organized all events we had on and off campus. My vision for Senate is to bring more awareness to LGBTQ and help others who struggle with identity. I just want to help our community better ourselves.

Kevin Longboy

Hello, my name is Kevin Longboy. I am a freshman architecture major. Being a part of Senate would give me the opportunity to properly represent students who don’t feel like their voices are heard. I encourage everyone, especially those who are not usually participatory to vote! This is your opportunity to influence the school! I have four years of student leadership experience, including positions such as Secretary, Vice President, Special Events, and commissioner at-large, as well as the Gay Straight Alliance Club Vice President. I envision Senate to be a diverse group of people, properly representing the campus community.
