In a new Q&A series, The Echo reporters ask Student Government Association candidates about their Spring 2016 campaigns. Elections will take place April 6-7 on Org Sync.

Q: Who are you and what are you running for?

Bertha Barrientos

My name is Bertha Barrientos and I’m running for Senior Class President.

Q: Why did you decide to run for SGA?

I want to serve and lead the UCA students and make this year as good as possible for all of us. I want to make sure that students feel like they are being heard and included, and that someone cares about them.

Q: Why should UCA students elect you?

I love this school, I want to be helpful and I want us all to build memories we’ll remember and treasure forever. I am a leader that tries to make a positive impact on everyone that comes across me. Serving is my passion.

Q: Have you been in a leadership position before?

I am the current president of the Latino Student Association, media chair for the Student Activities Board, Vice-President of the Finance and Investments Club, and I am a Resident Assistant.

Q: What’s something unusual about you?

I am originally from El Salvador.
