Jessica Romero

Regional Student Representative | University of California, Merced | Mechanical Engineering

Why did you run for this position?

SHPE has helped me out in so many ways but the two biggest ways is by helping me grow into the person I am and by providing the supportive community that helped me get to where I am. Through this position I want to improve the bond among all members within the region and bring awareness to topics that aren’t talked about often such as imposter syndrome, mental health awareness, entering spaces that were not designed for us, negotiating, and especially understanding that we all have a different story that we write. I want all our members to be able to succeed because that is what we are here to do, as we say at UC Merced “Lift as you climb”.
