Hello! I am a third year Political Science and Africana Studies double major and member of the Weber Honors College. I grew up in the East San Francisco Bay Area and I have always been passionate about public service and learning from the diverse communities I work with. I am a member of the SDSU Rotaract club, student in the Weber Honors College, employee of the Office of Admissions, and a research assistant for the Political Science department. I hope to gain a dual degree in law and public policy so I can help empower marginalized communities and facilitate access to local resources and government. As the President, I am looking forward to working alongside the CAL Council and assisting all of the students and organizations that represent the best qualities that or university has to offer!

Zakkiyya West

Zakkiyya West 
A.S. Representative

My name is Zakkiyya West and I am a graduating senior. class of 2018, double-majoring in Political Science and Africana Studies and minoring in Sociology. I pride myself in being an over-achieving activist because I am not only dedicated to the needs of others but will work to find ways to ensure their experience at SDSU and other needs are met and are accomplished. I am extremely excited to serve on CAL Council because for one we are in entering a transitional period, not only in America but on our own campus in regards to the executives at the top. I feel that because of this, we as newly selected campus reps will be able to broaden all concerns and of course possible solutions (if any) to students and executive officers which will move our school in the right direction. I am excited for my team and am looking forward to working with everyone. A change will come as we stand as OneSDSU!
