Audrey Hoehner My name is Audrey and I am a sophomore studying history and environmental studies. I wanted to be on BORSC because I feel like it is an opportunity to really listen to the student perspective and make a real impact on campus on the student body’s behalf, especially during these tumultuous times. Besides my involvement in SGA, I mostly like to spend my free time having fun and laughing (and maybe studying) with my friends. Claire Shaw I’m a senior Biology major (Pre-Vet) and my motivation for being on BORSC is rooted in bringing more awareness to the student body about what exactly this committee does. I have prior experience working with student organizations in SGA. Edwin Le Hello! My name is Edwin and I am a senior with a Biology major and Neuroscience concentration. I joined BORSC in order to promote developments that will allow St. Olaf to better fulfill the ever-changing needs of current and future Oles. This will be my third year on the committee; however, I am also a Mentor for TRIO Education Talent Search, the Commodore for the Executive Board of the Rowing Club, and the President of the newly-founded Red Cross Club. When I am not on the Hill, I enjoy finding new cafes to fuel my caffeine dependency and going on hikes back home in Portland, Oregon. Guadalupe Guerrero I am a senior majoring in Political Science, Japanese, and Asian Studies with concentrations in International Relations and Race/Ethnic Studies. Being a proud south side Chicagoan from the West Englewood neighborhood, my devotion to my community enabled me to take on leadership roles concerning social justice. In high school, I was on the student advisory committee for Janis Jackson, the CEO of Chicago Public Schools, where we developed, and implemented initiatives aimed at improving education inequality. I continued my passion for community organizing and uplifting marginalised student voices at St Olaf by taking active roles in the Political Awareness Committee and Student Senate, to name a few. I hope to bring these experiences to her work on BORSC, as a new cultivation of her passion. Outside of school and advocacy, my hobbies include reading, learning languages, and strength training. Imani Mosher I am a senior majoring in political science with a concentration in environmental studies. I was drawn to Borsc by the opportunity to amplify student voices for the board of regents, with an emphasis on environmental issues. I’m very involved with climate justice on and off this campus, which is why I bring a unique environmental perspective to this committee. Furthermore, I believe that the environment and a lot of the issues students are facing on this campus intersect in ways that we don’t always see. So, I am committed to working with borsc to shed light on the connections and opportunities to improve many of the issues on this campus. Tatev Gevorgyan My name is Tatev and I am a rising junior at St Olaf College. I come from Yerevan, Armenia and that is where I am spending my quarantine. At St Olaf I major in Economics, Political Science and have a concentration in International Relations. I have experience in being part of Student Government branches as I served as the bi-weekly and special events coordinator in the Political Awareness Committee last year. I wanted to be a part of BORSC because I am passionate about the social issues that the students face on campus and want to bridge the gap between the board of regent and the student body that is addressing those issues. Belky Hernandez I am a declared psychology major, but I am considering adding a second major (philosophy or political science). I wanted to be a part of BORSC because I desired to bring to light the concerns from a side of the student body that may not have been as present as it could have been in BORSC. I felt that my background could help me understand/empathize with a specific demographic of the student body whose voice may not have been considered when concerns where being brought up to the administration. I also wanted to be even more active with my community because I feel that although there remains many things St. Olaf could improve on, the community that I have been exposed to is a place that is open to listen. In addition to advocating for the student body, I fill my free time with reading from my favorite authors, playing my clarinet, and sketching. Claire Wu Hi ! I am a junior pre-vet math major. I am from Hood River, Oregon. I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and have been in the States since I was 13. I am passionate about representing anyone who wishes to have a voice as an ole. Besides my love for math and animals, I enjoy running and looking for good napping spots on campus. Excited to meet you all next fall! Dan Reiter Hi! I am Dan Reiter. I am an airplane enthusiast, sports fanatic, and Cage cookie lover.This year I hope to bring some new ideas and a fresh perspective to BORSC. Julia Himmelberger Hi! I’m Julia and I’m a junior from Wellesley, Massachusetts. I am majoring in Political Science and French with a concentration in International Relations. This is my third year on BORSC and I keep coming back because of our power to enact structural change on the campus and serve as a liaison with the Board of Regents and the student body. Outside of BORSC, I play on Vortex (the women’s ultimate frisbee team) and I am president of Women in Politics and Law. Logan Graham Hello! I’m Logan Graham, and I’m a sophomore double majoring in philosophy and economics. I’m very excited to spend my second year on BoRSC, and I’m ready to advocate for policy that makes St. Olaf a place where everyone can feel at home, especially in these turbulent times. I love poetry, music, board games, and getting to spend time with interesting strangers. Have a nice day! Modupe Botti Hi! I’m Modupe Botti, an international student from Nigeria. I am a junior double majoring in Economics and Political Science. This is my second year in BORSC, I’m very excited to continue conversations on bridging the gap between the student body, President Leadership Team and the Regents. One of the things that motivated me to join BORSC was hearing numerous complaints and suggestions from various students who did not know the right source to take these to. Further motivated by my interest in public policy, I believe it is important for the student body to be able to share their thoughts with those that play a vital role in running the school. I would particularly like to help strengthen the voice of smaller parts of the student body whose concerns are often overlooked, e.i. international students.” Apart from school related activities, I enjoy reading African literature, catching up on ‘gist’ with friends and experimenting with new cooking recipes. Providence Diomedi My name is Providence Diomedi. I’m a sophomore from Toronto, Canada and am so excited to be serving on BORSC this year! I am currently undeclared but will likely be majoring in French, Religion and maybe fit in some PoliSci in there, if I can. I’m looking forward to serving through BORSC and advocating on behalf of the St. Olaf student body. Some of my favourite hobbies including listening to murder podcasts (my favourite podcast being “My Favourite Murder”) and paddleboarding! Fricka Lindemann I’m the chair of this year’s committee, and very excited to realize our plans for the year and make BORSC a resource for the St. Olaf community as social justice is my big passion. Currently, I am a Political Science and Race and Ethnic Studies Major with a concentration in International Relations. In the future, I want to serve people by creating living and community spaces as an urban planner. I’m from Berlin, Germany, where my engagement started at Greenpeace. Then I went to the United World College in Germany, became the leader of the International Student Union at Semester at Sea, and worked full-time at a start-up for half a year before coming to the US. This year, I am a junior and live in the Intersectionality House. I also work for the German Department and the International & Off-Campus Studies Office.
