I'm the International Student Senator @ Teachers College, Columbia University

Thank you, fellow students at Teachers College! It is an honor to be your elected International Student Senator for 2016/2017. Honestly,  I didn't expect to be elected as all 10 candidates are true contenders with something unique to bring to the table. I will do my best to serve both the internationals & US students at TC. Our interests are not mutually exclusive, inclusiveness benefits all. As promised when I announced my candidacy , I will use the resources afforded to my office as International Student Senator to: improve the way that international students are included & engaged with at TC; become accepted & empowered members of our new community connect international students with local students, unique experiences in NYC, & awesome food places, as well as give back to the gem right under our noses, Harlem; ensure that none of us to come to TC & leave as the same person; and make our time here as enriching as possible.
