Trinity Moore & Julian Lin

SENATE CANDIDATES

JOIN CANDIDATE STATEMENT

Hello! My name is Trinity Moore and my name is Julian Lin, and we are thrilled to announce our senatorial run! For the past year, we served in the USG’s funding board, receiving the privilege of listening to personal narratives and handling various administrative tasks to financially support student initiatives, community outreach, and cultural celebrations. Hearing students’ stories is what continues to drive our efforts in promoting active advocacy. While we immeasurably enjoyed the financial side, as a senator, we look forward to dedicating our efforts to expanding resource accessibility, improving student well-being, tackling housing concerns, and extensively working towards more flexibility within students’ pursuit of professional exploration while balancing academics. With your support, we would love to contribute our abiding work ethic and ability to malleably conform to the demands of any professional environment to the USG Senate, all the while serving as a bridge between students and administration.
