Freshmen Representative Candidates

Ella Stewart

Major: Political Science and ESG

     Hi! My name is Ella Stewart and I am a freshman, double majoring in Political Science and Environment, Sustainability and Geography with a minor in Business. I am very outdoorsy and love to hike, rock climb, kayak and more. I am very passionate about social and environmental issues, making change is very important to me.

     I believe I would make a good leader because it is very important to me that everyone feels welcomed and included. I am very sociable and often find myself leading in group situations. I have experience as a leader being President of DECA at my high school. I led meetings, welcomed underclassman and assisted members with competitions.

     I think during COVID it has been especially challenging to connect with people like we used to. It's really important for new students to feel welcomed on campus and get involved. I would plan events where all students feel welcome and comfortable getting to know others. I have a lot of experience using social media for clubs which could be a great way to connect with more students.
