Why did you join Senate: I joined senate because I am passionate about representing my peers and having the opportunity to be their voice. To me, the being on the CSB senate means that I can become closer to my peers as well as learn more about them so I can represent them as best as I can. It means that I have the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself.
