Ingrid Cruz is a third-year studio art major.
What kind of experience would you bring to the office of the Vice President?
As current at-large representative on the ASUCI Legislative Council, I have familiarized myself with the needs of students as a whole. As executive vice president, I hope to organize UCI and make students aware of the role we play in fighting for fair tuition, changing our educational system and demanding that student interests are put first in our agenda.
What is the state of external affairs and what would you do differently?
One of the things that I’m ashamed of is that not a lot of students know about it on campus. But I feel that if we use whatever resources, like UCSA, it will give us a lot of power.
