Personal Statements by Nominees
Ella Wassweiler, Candidate for Co-President
In this last year as the VP of Academics and Diversity, I’ve tried to capitalize on the momentum to revitalize the diversity aspect of GSA and bring new activities and community building into focus. With this goal, we have partnered more strongly with EECS REFS and GW6 to bring events such as the Wellness Dinner and Women in Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon. As your new Co-President I want to maintain our diversity initiatives as well as continue to build communities at all levels as we transition to being split between the School of Engineering and College of Computing.
