SBC Vice President Candidates
Hi everyone! I’m Ethan and I’m running to be your SBC Vice President. For the last two years, I’ve been the Treasurer and VP of LSA 2022. During this time, I’ve done a wide range of work from planning elaborate events and fundraisers to overseeing five committees. This year, we started a project called “Newsweek,” in which we made informative posts on current events. We also put together a couple of wildly successful fundraisers as well as game nights to give students the opportunity to maintain relationships with peers.
Next year, in addition to planning all the events you know and love, I want to take the lead in making our incoming Lowellites feel at home. I plan on hosting bonding events for freshmen to build comradery. I hope to create Club Publicity Panels for students to discover new interests or develop existing passions and to help clubs expand. I look to continue the rapid growth of Social Awareness Week to bring attention to the issues that affect our communities
I want to leave Lowell a safer and more inclusive place in my final year on LSA. Be sure to vote Ethan Liang for SBC Vice President!
Karissa (Qian) Yan
Hello, hello! My name is Karissa, and I’m running to be your SBC Vice President! I may not be a familiar face on this ballot, but despite not having prior experience in student government, I have been lucky enough to remain active within the Lowell community as an officer of multiple clubs like Red Cross, TedEd, and Science Research, as well as participate as a peer mentor and company dancer. Throughout the years as a student leader, I have had the opportunity to plan and host meetings and events, learn how to effectively lead and be a part of a team, facilitate conversations on diversity and social issues, and most importantly, I have learned the importance of proactivity and compassion.
I am a person with strong diplomatic qualities, and I value communication and individuality. I believe that the only way to honor diversity is through truly respecting—truly seeing—every student, and I believe that the solution to any problem can only begin with effective communication. If given the opportunity, I hope that on top of regular SBC duties, I can also help spotlight student voices and clubs, boost student activism, and improve the communication between the student body and Lowell administration.
