Evelin Espino

Senator At-Large

Hello Bobcats! My name is Evelin Espino and I am a rising first generation, third year student majoring in Sociology. I was raised in Richmond, CA, a city that has inspired me to lead in strength and pride in everything I do. My family's immigration journey in the early years of my life ignited my passion to serve as a resource and help the undocumented community along with other marginalized communities, ultimately inspiring me to pursue a path in immigration law. As a senator, I want to help amplify the voices of the students here at UC Merced. I aim to lead based on students' concerns with an emphasis on being transparent and holding accountable those that need to be held accountable. Additionally, I hope to increase student success through providing funding and support to clubs and organizations that are crucial in aiding student growth. In order to have a level playing field, we must fully invest in our students the same way that we do in other aspects of this institution. Students' needs should always come first.
