What I’m looking forward to doing for the IFC: “I am working to tackle issues of sexual violence, hazing, classism, and discrimination in Greek life through policy, programming, and involvement with the Cornell community at large. I believe in building relationships with community stakeholders because all student voices matter, and they can share perspectives that we would never see in IFC Greek life alone. I am also working on engaging the IFC within its chapters to talk about identity and unity. I hope that the efforts of the Executive Board will see a more inclusive and forward thinking IFC than our predecessors.”
