My name is Pari Cariaga and I am running for Sophomore Representative. When not studying political science and history, I enjoy singing in Madonna Della Strada, going to Taize prayer, and exploring Chicago! I want to be a member of Unified Student Government because I have come to love Loyola University. Someone once told me that you should leave a place better than how you found it. That is what I wish to do at LUC. I want to be a member of an organization that helps make this university a wonderful place for people to learn, live, and work. Some of my past leadership experience includes president of my high school’s drama club, the largest student organization on campus, and Link Crew Student Coordinator, a mentor program. Through these different leadership opportunities I have learned how to work with large, diverse groups of people. I have also acquired skills at being a good team member. I appreciate the challenges and rewards that come from collaboration. As your Representative, I will work my hardest to help make Loyola University a welcoming, accepting, and exciting place to be!
