Emmanuelle Yakana, Candidate for International Student Senator

As an international student, I am drawn to people from all over the world. So far being at UIS, I have made connections with people from all around the globe and it has been a great experience for me to get to know them and their culture. As I am President of the International Student Friendships Organization on campus this Fall, and considering the current situation, I know there is so much more that can be done to help ease the experience of my fellow international students in the US, and I am thriving to make suggestions and get involved as much as I can with question that concern international Students. I will be honored to serve my fellow international students and work with other SGA officer to make our campus home for us all no matter where we are from.
