My name is Laura-Alexis Linares, a fourth year majoring in Global Arts Studies with a minor in Writing, and I am a Senator At-Large for ASUCM. As Senator I have the ability to make important and necessary changes to improve and maintain strength of our campus and community. I aim to promote growth and diversity. I am passionate about helping others and the community, and I enjoy participating in many community service activities and volunteering events. One of my major projects under this position will be to begin a new student-led newspaper. This project will serve to educate the public and keep the people of Merced unified and up-to-date with a variety of topics to appeal to a range of interests. As Senator At-Large, I further aim to promote the positive environment of our campus and the success of, and availability of resources to, students here at UC Merced. I believe every student, regardless of background, sexual orientation, background, or ethnicity, should have equal opportunities and representation.
