to help those around me. If elected president, I will do everything in my
power to ensure that students have the most memorable and exciting experience
while at Foothill. I will ensure there are more events on campus, better
advertisement of activities, and to serve the student body as best as I can
so that every student at Foothill College is represented and to provide

here I have significantly contributed to the Foothill community through my
involvement in Campus Activities. I have been a Peer Advisor for the Map Your
Future Program, and I'm currently the Lead Ambassador for the Community Ambassador
Program, in which I give Campus Tours and workshops to new students. I joined
Student Government in Winter Quarter as the Footprints Newsletter Chief Editor,

for itself, Vote Adiel for ASFC President.
Hi! My name is Lauren Wilson and I would like to be your 2013-2014 ASFC
President. I have been part of ASFC as Media and Communications Coordinator
for one year now and I love being part of this amazing group. I was a major
part in Eco-Pass Committee, March in March Committee, Political Awareness
week and I lobbied in Sacramento for Higher Education. Currently I am an
intern for Senator Jim Beall, as well as part of the Ambassador program on
campus. I firmly believe that the communication about Foothill's events and
taking care of the needs of the students should be top priority for Student
Government. With my leadership we can make this happen!
VP of Activities Candidates
I have been an Activities Coordinator for 4 quarters. During my time I have experienced
what it takes to be VP of Activities by planning events, chairing activities meetings,
working with our budget, attending shared governance's, participating in president's
cabinet meetings, and working with the current VP of Activities daily. Having worked
with the Activities Board for the last year I would love to become VP of Activities
and create events that enrich student life and promote organizations like ASFC,
Ambassadors, and Clubs. I am committed to holding weekly college hour events and
building stronger relationships between students and ASFC.
My name is Arielle Roy and I am a single mother. I am running for the ASFC
VP of Activities because I want to bring diversity through our activities and
to make sure everyone's interests are fulfilled. I want to make sure everyone
is seen and heard. I have a deep passion to help people and I understand the
values of the student body. I am dedicated and will always put my best
foot forward in anything I do on campus. When you vote for me, you vote
for someone that puts the students before herself.
VP of Administration Candidates
My name is Newton He and I am a student running for Vice President of Admin.
I was born in Los Angeles and stayed there for 15 years of my childhood life.
Then I moved up to Northern California in 2005 until now. In My previous years
in ASFC, I have served on four boards through different positions and how each
VP before told me many advices on goals and on being successful. I am now the
current Senator of the academic year 2012-13 year. As Vice President of Admin, I
want to increase the opinions and voice as a way to build a connection with ASFC
and the student body. This year as your current Senator, I made huge accomplishments
this year that would make you satisfied. I was active participant in March in
March 2013, the eco pass was passed and I encourage students to Vote yes
on Prop 30. I hope that as your VP of Admin, I could expand the Footprints,
address the sustainable issues, have a SSCCC rep address the current budget
crises that Foothill is facing in some minor portions.
I am Edward Kim (Youngwan) from South Korea and this is my 3rd quarter of
studying in Foothill College, majoring in mathematics. Before I came States,
I served to Korean National army for two years. During the last six months,
I became a squad leader. It was mandatory as a citizen but I actually learned
a lot of things about leadership. After that, I decided to study abroad to
States because I wanted to experience a real cultural diversity. Now I have
not only met a number of great friends but also enjoyed my academic life in
here Foothill College.
VP of Finance Candidates
My name is Yanitsa Mihaylova and I wish to become your next Vice President
of Finance. I'm currently majoring in Business Administration at Foothill
College. I have been actively involved in ASFC student government this year,
serving on the Finance Board as Business Operations Specialist for 3 quarters
and on the Budget Commission as a voting member. I'm very passionate and
dedicated to my work. I will strive to improve campus life by supporting
vital programs, seeking to offer more benefits to students and represent
your interests, and overall encouraging student success!
My name is Jason Rusli and I have been part of ASFC as the budget analyst since
Fall quarter 2012. As an international student from Indonesia, I had made a bold
decision to go to the United States to pursue my further studies, hoping to obtain
a better education. Being in the budget team for almost a year, I learned how to
allocate student body's resources wisely and effectively in order to support
school's activities and campus services. It would be a great opportunity and
blessing to keep on serving the students and I will certainly lift up to your
expectations as the Vice President of Finance for 2013-2014.
VP of Organizations/Clubs Candidates
Hello, my name is Rehaan Jahanghir, and I have been deeply involved with
clubs and OBD at Foothill for three years. I have been the OBD representative
and founder for three clubs: Energy Service Corps, Computer Science and
Engineering, and the Techo Club. In addition, I am currently president of
the Techo Club. As someone who has been involved with so many clubs, I feel
that the policies of OBD have been stifling club development. As OBD Vice
President, I would reform OBD so it will be more streamlined, efficient,
and conducive to club activities.
Harim Hayly Kang
I am an international student here at Foothill College since Fall 2011.
I am originally from Korea and came to US when I was 14. I joined ASFC during
my first quarter and I really fell in love with the OBD Board. I will
continue my work as a VP and get more people to start clubs and join clubs.
As an OBD VP, I am going to be very easy to communicate and reach. I think
it is very important not only to study at Foothill, but to also to make
friends and enjoy the Campus Life. Let's work on extending our Foothill
Family and enriching every one's experience with good club experience!
Jessica Audrey Wijaya
Hello everyone! My name is Jessica Audrey Wijaya and I am an international
student here in Foothill College since Winter 2013. This is my 2nd quarter
serving as the OBD Secretary where I get to learn to more about the campus'
varied clubs, socialize with more international students and develop my
leadership skill. It has been an amazing experience for me to join the OBD
board and if I could be granted the opportunity to be the next VP, I would
devote my effort, commitment, and dedication to support the campus clubs and
student body to bring positive changes to the campus. It has always been my
interest and motivation to maintain a better sense of unity and harmony to
create a stronger bond between all the clubs at the campus. I believe that
when there is a will, there is a way! :)
VP of Senate Candidates
My name is Hannah Teter, I am in my third quarter here at Foothill College.
I am currently a full time student, a senator, an ambassador, I have a job that
requires me to work organized events and work with all different types of adults
and children. In my position as senator I have worked with the Eco-Pass committee,
and worked hard organizing March in March. I was not only a marcher within the
event but was also a lobbyist; the experience was nothing short of amazing.
Within my time being a senator I have grown as an individual, and exercised
the right of free speech as well as learned how to communicate with all
different types of personalities. I've recently attended the latest SSCCC
conference in Burlingame and perfected my parliamentary procedure skills;
while coming back with an even greater understanding of how my position can
help the students at the school, and how much more I want to do for Foothill
College as the VP of Senate.
My name is Daniel Vignon. I have been at Foothill College since the Winter
Quarter 2013. I chose to run for the position of Vice President of Senate
because I felt that we, the Associated students of Foothill College, needed
to better interact with our fellow students to effectively take care of their
needs. What makes me think I can make this change happen as VP of Senate?
Not a lot of things except that I am really attentive to people and I love
interacting with the Foothill community; I would be glad to use these
qualities to make the ASFC more successful in meeting our students' needs.
While I don't have much background experience in government, student or
otherwise, I do have several qualities that make me a good candidate for
senator. I am a good active listener and always have time to hear personal
issues. I am also not afraid to put forward controversial opinions and
fight for what is right on the behalf of others. I think it is vitally
important that the voice of the students have a strong advocate in student
government and the governing bodies that are directly responsible for making
decisions that impact the lives of Foothill College students.
My name is Christian Gonzalez a currently enrolled student at Foothill
College, ending this quarter will complete one full year. Over this period
of time I have taken on responsibilities such as being a student ambassador
for the Community student ambassador program, here I would give tours
around campus to students that would be considering Foothill College as
an Institution they would like to attend. Also we would help set up events
on campus for various clubs, and individuals. I have also been interacting
with many Foothill students on and off of campus leading me to want to run
for a position as student senator. Being part of this has also lead me to
learn more about on campus programs and services that are provided for enrolled
students. Other possible qualification are that I currently hold a job at the
library, give music lessons at the Alum Rock School District Mariachi Program,
and like to interact with people in general.
My name is Jeffrey Wong and I am a Bay Area native. This is my third
quarter at Foothill College and I have been active in a variety of campus
clubs. After two quarters of club involvement, I am ready to take on the
next challenge of bridging communication between students and the ASFC.
As a student who has spent most of my campus time outside of student government,
I intended to offer a fresh perspective in ASFC as a senator. By actively
listening and voicing the interests and concerns of students, I hope to make
a meaningful contribution in the community and within Foothill College. I
will use my privilege as a senator to ensure that all Foothill College
students are represented.
Student Trustee Candidates
My name is Aaron Baker, and I'm running for Student Trustee for the 2013-14
school year. I attended Gunn High in Palo Alto, where I spent time on
student government, serving as Treasurer. Now, what does the Student
Trustee do? The Trustee attends board meetings, where issues such as budgets
and school goals are addressed. The Trustee represents Foothill College as a
voting member of the committee. I believe my experience attending school
board meetings as Treasurer and my political science major give me the
interest and experience necessary to best represent Foothill College as
The Student Trustee Position is seen as one of the most important roles
in student government. Serving as the Bridge between the students and the
Board of trustee's is an awesome responsibility that I would love to have.
One of the goals I would like to achieve during my term, as trustee is to
better communicate to the students on the current projects that go on in
the Board's meetings. Even as a member of student government it always seemed
a hazy to me on what was going on, and would like to make it more accessible
