Through her experiences, Apaza learned that every student requires a support system. As ASI vice president, she hopes to improve resources that are provided to students to ensure their pursuit of success.
Apaza decided to run for ASI vice president after the pandemic started. Along with other students, she found it difficult to cope with the stress it brought on. She faced housing and food insecurity, a lack of study space, mental health relapses and family sicknesses. In response, she reached out to campus resources and was met with limitations. She realized students need more support services, whether that be financially, in Counseling and Psychological Services, or securing food. She is driven to expand the resources already available for students and advocate for new services. Vice President Apaza is excited to serve the student body and work alongside the ASI executive board.
