My name is Mirella Ceja-Orozco, and it would be an honor to be voted your 2L Student Representative. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from UC Davis in 2008 with degrees in Political Science and Native American Studies, and from UC Berkeley in 2009 with Paralegal CertificationI am the first person in my family to seek higher education, and the first person in my family to receive a 4-year degree. This, in part, epitomizes my commitment to overcome any obstacle and my continued passion to become the change I wish to see within my community and my school.

Coming from a diverse cultural background, I am eager to foster a diversity of experiences and viewpoints within the SBA. As a student representative, I intend to be the desperately needed liaison between my classmates and the university. I want to be the person my classmates can feel comfortable expressing their concerns to big or small. I want there to be more transparency for students to know what is happening on and around campus without the burden of having to hunt for it. Information will become more readily available so that everyone knows what is happening at any time of their choosing. So make the right choice by voting for a representative who represents!

Thank you so much.
