Candidate for ISLC Vice President: Jaweal Hakoum, 20’
As an immigrant here, I understand the obstacles in adapting to a new environment and the amount of stress associated with it. Our international student body is an integral part of the LC population, and it is enriching diversity on our campus tremendously. As the Vice President, I want to further integrate international students in the LC community by advocating for topic and issues of interest for both the American and the international students’ population. I will do my best to raise awareness for the needs of international students and the necessary resources to ensure their prosperity in the LC community. Ultimately, I will try to bring together all the cultures on our campus through the annual International Fair in 2019 and though the ISLC events throughout the year. I aim to achieve this mission as the Vice President of ISLC. Thank you for your vote!
