Why I joined: The reason I joined the ARH Leadership Team is due to the numerous counts of community members not getting the daily amount of meals they need per day. Serving our community for the betterment of their basic needs is a strong passion that I have. I also joined knowing that I would be working with a group of passionate members who are strongly committed to fighting food insecurity in the San Diego community. I want this to be a great experience where I can look back and remember the positive impact we left on the student campus / 619 community.

Year: Senior (4th Year)
Major: Business Management, Marketing Minor
Hometown: Dos Palos, CA
Why I joined: I joined ARH because I know how much students can impact a wide range of people by bringing awareness and using our resources to help those who may need it. Coming from a low income community, I have seen my peers and families deal with food insecurities and I wanted to help showcase the importance of community resources that fight against the ongoing food insecurity issue in CA. Being a part of a campaign that promotes the fight of food insecurity has encouraged me to continue to use my voice as a student leader to help SDSU students and families in my new San Diego community.

Why I joined: Aztecs Rock Hunger is a campaign that directly affects the communities I serve on campus and I want to further be a part of helping and connecting our campus to something so great! I grew up utilizing my local food bank and have then since strived to fight food insecurity and be an advocate for those who need it most. ARH allows us to give back to our larger SD community while also representing student voices locally on campus. I look forward to challenging our limits of service while also supporting our AS pantry for the rest of the academic year.

Year: 4th Year
Major: Business Management
Hometown: Ramona, California
Why I joined: I joined ARH because I believe that food insecurity affects the whole person, physically and mentally. It can have a large effect on children’s performance in school and adults keeping work. Hunger is a root problem that creates a chain of tough events for individuals and has a large impact on health. As I think it’s important to fight for others to live their life to the fullest, it’s vital to fight for those experiencing food insecurity.
