Constructing the Legacy of the Class of 2020
Class Council President
Major: Economics and Political Science
Hometown: Miami, FL
Campus Involvement: FSU University Ambassadors, Alpha Kappa Psi professional fraternity, DeVoe L. Moore Center for Economic Research - Policy Intern
Why Legacy: Legacy is composed of normal students with leadership experience. People forget that SGA is just a tool to help students. It's easy to get 'lost in the sauce', as many people feel SGA people have become. Legacy stands out in this race as a true grassroots operation with no pre-existing network of support.
Favorite Platform Point: Student involvement is my main platform point. With over 700 clubs here at FSU, there's no reason why anybody should feel lonely. I want the class of 2020's legacy to make it easier than ever for the next class of freshmen to get involved!
Fun Fact: My father is an immigrant who came here from Spain in 1980 with nothing but two briefcases (one full of books) and $300.
Major: Psychology, focus in Clinical Research
Hometown: Riverview, FL
Campus Involvement: Black Male Initiative: Board of Directors, 70th seat Student Senator, Sophomore Class Council: Member at Large, FSU's Florida Reading Research Facility: Student intern, Pre-Health Living Learning Community: Representative, Vires Torch Award winner
Why Legacy: I choose Legacy because here I can align myself with a team of leaders who strive to not only build excellence but make it accessible. It only takes a few passionate people to make a huge impact and with Legacy, I know FSU's community will see a new wave of student involvement and achievement.
Favorite Platform Point: Academics. I believe we have a talented student body who deserve to be recognized. I also believe as a student body, we should have a unified voice in holding FSU accountable for continually providing an excellent education. With Legacy, I see those points becoming a reality.
Fun Fact: I've traveled to 12 different countries!

I want to empower students to realize their leadership potential and give them the tools to achieve financial freedom beyond their college career.
