Campaign Promises: Senator Paulina Brambila is a newly elected senator as of Spring 2018. She is interested in giving back to the community and supporting the sciences. As she is a STEM major, she wishes to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in ASUCM. She plans to promote STEM by advocating for more STEM related projects in ASUCM. Outside of ASUCM, Brambila has designs to campaign for STEM related clubs and organizations receiving better funding. Finally, she wishes to not just create an outreach to STEM majors, but all other majors to inform them more about ASUCM and other club related projects. She maintains that it is important for all students to have equal opportunities and outreach; she believes she can help to accomplish this.
