As Co-Director of Disability Advocacy in this year’s ASSU Executive Cabinet, I have had the honor of serving with both Kimiko and Bryce throughout this academic year.

Over my past few years at Stanford, I have been able to witness both Kimiko and Bryce grow and develop into prominent change makers on campus. Based on their past successes, I firmly believe they will substantially improve the student experience at Stanford and address the concerns of Stanford’s most underserved communities. Simply put, Kimiko and Bryce know how to get things done, and that is why I am voting for them as ASSU Execs.
