 Ciarra Dela Cruz

I want to make more for myself- to meet new people and create long lasting connections, further my own leadership and communication skills, and take any opportunity I can to make the best out of my college years. For me, college is more than getting a degree- it is important to also develop as a person. Getting more involved and reaching out to my community is how I plan to reach those goals.

I’m passionate about people and working with people, which is why I’m now a public health major! Helping people reach their true potential is a crucial component of becoming more empowered and happier and healthy individual. I strive is to help out however I can- and with animals too !! Part of my job includes working with reptiles and amphibians, and I enjoy the moments I am able to spend with them as well.

Berlinda Kuo

Hello everyone! My name is Berlinda. I am a junior Graphic Design major. I came from a small island called Taiwan. Our culture has been influenced by other cultures based on our history and background, so I grew up in a place that has enrich with cultures. Therefore, I loved to learn and experience all kinds of cultures in the world. That is also why I traveled across the Pacific Ocean to this diverse country.

In my leisure time, I like to travel and go on photo shoots with my friends. I believe that camera is magical because it can capture and record our memories, either happy or sad. And we can always enjoy our time looking at the pictures with our family and friends. This reason inspired me to join the hall government as a Historian because I want to record the moments that all residents spend while they enjoy their time in the residents halls.

I am very optimistic when I encounter a situation and I love it, I believe it’s one of my good qualities. During my spare time I enjoy reading motivational books as well as videos. I love learning about new cultures because it shows that not everything has to be done a certain way and that not everyone has the same beliefs.

Publicity Officer

Sarita Sachsel

I always find that to truly learn and experience other cultures are through their food. It is the reason why I like trying new cuisines and spices through cooking and eating. Like life, we can never truly understand one another without going out there and experience the world through different lenses. An ability to read and understand others helps me to communicate with others. Social skills are as important as an abilities to be empathize with one another and be open mindness about our differences. Which led me to joined Hall Government as one of the Public Officer. I want to make a different in our residences life by creating a community that they can thrive in. To be there as a friend, as a mentor or as an outlet to heard their troubles is our purpose as a member of Hall Government.
