Daisy Lewis | 2nd year
I am extremely passionate about leadership. I was involved in Student Government in high school, and was class president all 4 years, and was Student Body President for my junior and senior years. I was also a part of the California Association of Student Councils and acted as secretary and outreach director of the Sacramento region. I hope to continue to be a part of leadership organizations and advocate for a better experience for those around me. Coming from a very diverse city and school, I have learned the importance of diversity and equity in education. So far, this college has been very welcoming and seems like the type of place I would love to work with and be a part of the great changes being made. I hope to also be able to combine this with my love for the environment and sustainability.
I want to connect CED to the rest of the university and make sure more people know who we are, and perhaps work with other colleges on projects to create bigger changes.
I would like to advocate for an entirely sustainable and waste-free college, encouraging reusable and/or used materials.
I want to create a space/place where students can voice their opinions and suggestions for the program, and/or a place to easily connect with the career center to get started on ideas or career goals they have as soon as possible, and connect with professionals who can help guide their ideas, thinking, and path.
Camila Stacchetti | 4th year
In 2018-2019 I was a member of SED Inc and attended the first town hall for my major. I witnessed the impact of sharing experiences amongst peers and brainstorming solutions for ongoing areas of improvement within the major and the college. Through these small initiatives I realized how I wanted to increase my involvement within CED.
Make it more feasible to major and minor within the college by providing more information and guidelines that map out this academic prospect.
Increase SED's presence within the college by showcasing students work and projects.
Broaden students' scope of life after college by hosting social events that connect student with CED alumni that represent alternative career paths.
Yorgelys Monroy | 4th year
I would love to contribute to the legislative process affecting my fellow peers and me.

My professional goal is to earn a position in the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Host educational events/ symposiums for the broader Berkeley community and neighboring cities;
