She is also active in the California State Student Association (CSSA) for the past three years, one of the largest student advocacy groups in the nation. Most recently, she steered the committee that organized CSSA’s premier event, the California Higher Education Student Summit held in Sacramento. In its 17th year, the summit attracted over 250 student form the 23 CSU campuses and worked to empower students to become change agents for an accessible, affordable, and quality system of higher education for California. Her focus for this conference was also to integrate social media into the program so that they could bring increased awareness and interaction with CSSA.
