EXECUTIVE BOARD

Hi all! I'm excited to be serving as your 2017-2018 president! As president, I'm here to ensure that all of your needs are met. Outside of RSS, I'm an RA for Rieber Vista, and I'm also interning at the UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations and at GLAAD. I love food, graphic design, complaining about school, and everyone in RSS! See you in the fall - I'm known for looking angry all the time, but please still say hi!

Hey everyone! My name is Irena, and as IVP, I'm in charge of planning general meetings, Winter Retreat, and Spring Banquet - get excited! Outside of RSS, I work on research, and I've also interned at the NIH. I'm also really involved in the Learning Assistant program at UCLA, so you might find me in one of your life science classes! Personally, you'll probably catch me watching movies or talking about Disneyland. I'm excited to meet all of you!
