2017 A.S. Platform


As Jackie Robinson once said, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.”

Hello Spartan Community,

I am the proud son of two immigrant parents, both who made many great sacrifices to provide me with the life I have today. My father came to this country about 30 years ago, escaping communist Vietnam to offer his sisters and future family with a chance to obtain success and the American Dream.

This attitude of serving and putting others first is a lesson I have tried to live by throughout every stage of my young life. That is why in a span of six months as your Director of Internal Affairs, I succeeded in fulfilling my campaign promises from the previous election season.

If provided the privilege to represent you for another term, I plan to:

  1. Clarify: The more efficient an organization can be, the better. Having someone with current experience in Associated Students return will allow for a smoother governing process.
  2. Modify: This position is primarily responsible for two documents: the Bylaws and Elections Regulation Manual. While numerous changes were made to each, improvements are always welcomed.
  3. Unify: It is now more important than ever that this community unites and supports one another. Social media will continue to play a significant role in spreading awareness of issues that resonate with students.

As I stated last year, happy students result in a happy campus. Let us continue working together in 2017, and further our progress in making SJSU a campus filled with Spartan pride.
