MEET THE TEAM
“As a second-year student studying honors political science and english, and student leader at the University of Utah, I have witnessed the passion students have to make campus a better place while listening to their concerns and ideas. As a queer woman, there have been many times where I have had to fight for a seat at the table. I will hear all students and help them thrive on our campus by giving them a seat at the table to create lasting change on campus. As your next student body president, I will advocate for a safer, more accessible and affordable campus- both in person and virtually- especially for those disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, our Black, Indigenous and students of color. The Wojciechowski Ticket will elevate students’ your and empower you to ignite the change that we need here at the U.”
"My name is Tiffany Chan and I am running for Vice President of University Relations. I am a first-generation Honors student majoring in political science and economics and minoring in philosophy, with plans to attend law school. As a current student leader at the University of Utah, I actively participate in diversity, equity, and inclusion reform dialogues, all of which are fundamental to the roots of our education and wellbeing as students. My involvements have culminated into firsthand insight of the U’s area strengths and weaknesses. As a BIPOC woman, I understand deeply the discorporate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on marginalized identities and experiences, so I will utilize my position to be proactive and responsive with your voice channeling better, lasting change.
"My name is Maryan Shale and I am running for Vice President of Student Relations. I am a first generation refugee student. I ran because I want to see more people who look like me in spaces where decisions are being made that could impact their livelihood on and off campus. As a black woman, I would say that my experience at the U has been different, there are times where I’ve felt invisible so I took the initiative to be heard instead, and I did that by getting involved on campus. I was an Orientation Leader, Beacon & Diversity Scholar, and held leadership roles in organizations such as The African Student Association and I am the current President of Black Student Union. I want the U to be compassionate, collaborative and open to change. I believe our ticket will elevate student voices and be a counterbalance to the University Administration. I am currently a junior majoring in health society policy with minors in leadership and sociology.”
