Non-official Candidate Statement
My experience: Currently, I am a member of Phi Alpha Delta Co ed Pre Law Fraternity where I have served as pledge educator for the fall 2005 psi pledge class. I also am the Transfer Student Association Social Vice President where I plan academic and social events to help ease the transition and provide a social network for transfer students here at UC Davis. Currently I am working with the ASUCD Academic Affairs Commission planning events such as Diversity Days forums and the Last Lecture Series. I have worked for UCD Preview Day as well as spoken on numerous panels for prospective transfer students. I also intern for California Capital which is a non profit non partisan organization that focuses on teaching students leadership skills while working towards the development of school based health programs for lower income high schools. I have been an employee at Arden Hills Resort Club and Spa for the last five years.
Hey Aggies! My name is Naomi Amaha and I am running for ASUCD Senate on the L.E.A.D state. I am 4th year student from Sacramento, CA majoring in Sociology and Communication with a minor in Political Science. My main goal, if elected, is to help ease the cost of a higher education for students at UC Davis through realistic and achievable methods. I will work with the ASUCD book exchange to increase the availability of this resource for students as well as advocate for its relocation to a more centralized area. I also intend to continue improving ties with CalPIRG and ASUCD to collectively fight budget cuts that affect higher education and promote textbook affordability. I also plan to carry on efforts started by AAC to improve students access to advising services by working to update the Degree Navigation website. I feel students have a preconceived notion about what it means to be an ASUCD senator and would like to break that mold and act a representative of this diverse student body and its needs. I am determined to show students ASUCD is an asset to this University and something worth getting involved in and believing in. My participation in L.E.A.D has shown me that students do have the opportunity to make a change but the key is showing them how. Thank you for taking the time to learn what I am about and remember to make your voice heard and get out and vote Feb 22nd and 23rd at elections.ucdavis.edu! Vote Naomi Amaha #1 for ASUCD senate as well as the rest of the L.E.A.D slate, Andrew Bianchi, Jarvis Burston, Ravi Deepak, Dwaimy Rosas-Romero and Marvin Zamora.
I love this school and want everyone to have the same possiblities I have to make a difference and be involved at UCD.
