Bryn Barasha
Civic Engagement Director

BrynI am junior from Glendale, AZ double majoring in American History and Sociology with plans to attend law school after I finish my undergraduate studies. I have been involved in multiple ASU activities such as: a Peer Mentor for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Vice President of Fundraising for Dance Marathon, Vice President of Campus Relations for Alpha Gamma Delta, and was also a policy intern for USG last year. I love to read, go on Reddit, and hang out with my sisters. My goals as Civic Engagement director are getting ~1,100 people register to vote for the 2013-2014 school year and educating voters on voting issues so they can be educated and informed at the polls. My future ambition is to be the next Elle Woods.

Amy Umaretiya
State and National Affairs Director

AmyI am a junior at ASU majoring in civil engineering and political science. I really believe that it is important for students to be politically aware, regardless of their majors or interests. That is why one of my goals this year as the Director of Community and Local Affairs is to hold a monthly speaker series where students can learn about current issues and local elected officials. I also want to make sure students know the direct impacts of local government on their lives, so another goal of mine is to distribute information on city ordinances that have been passed or are being considered that affect students. I’m looking forward to working with the other Policy Department directors to foster a more politically engaged student body.
