CAB Social Issues and Community Engagement Coordinator

jaredName: Jared Trinka

 

Title/Position (Student Leader): Cascadia Activity Board - Social Issues and Community Engagement Coordinator; I will be programming and coordinating events and activities that enhance the overall education and awareness of diversity and social justice topics, as well as service-learning and community engagement throughout the year.

 

High School you graduated from (and city): I was raised in the greater Bothell area, and graduated from Bellevue Christian High School in Bellevue, WA.

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?: I am going to community college because of the cheaper cost for the first 2 years of college as compared to a 4-year institution. I also chose Cascadia specifically because this school is local for me.

 

What are your hobbies/interests? (Outside of school): Music is one of my greatest passions; I love a wide variety of genres, and am a musician myself, playing piano and singing for collectively 19 years. Besides music I also enjoy reading, playing video games, hiking and running, spending time with my loved ones, and being overall productive.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia and how is Cascadia helping you reach those goals?: This is also my third year here at Cascadia, and afterwards I intend to transfer to a 4-year university to eventually finish up my BA in Business Administration. A goal of mine is to eventually have a job in the business world where I will not have to worry too much about my finances, and Cascadia is helping me to reach this goal by giving me a safe space to pursue my education, as well as to intentionally network with a wide variety of people.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life? Cascadia Student Life has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me thus far. This is my third year being in this office (2 years on Cascadia Student Government, and now on CAB), and I can definitely say that I would not be the same person I am today if I had not been involved. I have made so many connections, learned so much, and gone through many rewarding challenges because of the fact that I have been involved on-campus. I would definitely recommend it to anyone else, regardless of who they are! I am so excited to work with CAB over the next year! If you see me around campus please feel free to say hello, and approach me with any ideas for programs you would like to see on campus, questions, or just random conversation!

 

See y’all around!

CAB Art and Culture Coordinator

vickyName: Hi, my name is Jui-Chi Wu, and I go by Vicky.

 

Title/Position (Student Leader): Cascadia Activity Board Art and Culture Coordinator

 

High School you graduated from (and city): I was born on a small island called Taiwan on the Pacific Ocean at East Asia, thus, I am an International student here. If you have no idea where and what the island is, just remember that the food in Taiwan is awesome!

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?: I chose Cascadia, because Cascadia went to my country to promote themselves and it is literally the only school I have heard of at that time. The fact that Cascadia shares campus with University of Washington Bothell and even has access to library resources in all three campuses of University of Washington: Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma, caught my attention.

 

What are your hobbies/interests? (Outside of school): I like listening to music, watch videos on youtube and chat with my friends during my free time.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia and how is Cascadia helping you reach those goals?: I plan to transfer to a 4-year university after Cascadia, and University of Washington is my first priority. Saying this, Cascadia can help me reach my goal because I am already able to grab a hint of what University of Washington is like since we share campus and resources, and also, the tuition for the community college is just much cheaper.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life? Getting involved in Cascadia Student Life makes me more engaged. Also, I gain experiences in programming and socializing with people. Most important of all, being a part in student life just highlights your personal statement if your goal is to transfer to a 4-year university after Cascadia. To be true, I just started this position one month ago, and I already feel my life being lit up!

CAB  Series Event Coordinator  

criss

Name: Carissa, but you can call me Criss!

 

Title/Position (Student Leader): Cascadia Activities Board - Series Programs Coordinator

 

High School you graduated from (and city): I just moved up here from Jakarta, Indonesia about a year ago and am currently living in the beautiful city of Seattle. I didn’t graduate from my high school back in Jakarta, instead, I left my home country when I was a just a sophomore and immediately attended Cascadia the next year. The fact that I can never say that I graduated from my high school upsets me sometimes, but I am glad that I moved to Washington and have already met so many amazing people as well as gained a lot of new learning experiences in just a year.

 

What are you studying? This is my second year attending CCC and I am here to finish my high school completion program and to receive an Associate’s degree.

 

What are your hobbies/interests? (Outside of school): When I am not in class or working, you can always find me at the art store buying supplies for my next big artwork/project. This hobby made me interested in getting a major in design. If I’m not listening to music on my phone, others can usually find me playing different instruments and singing every song that comes on the radio almost 24/7. Music has always been a huge part of my life and that was what encouraged me to go for a minor in music too. I also love to travel and go on spontaneous road trips with my friends. I always love a good adventure!

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?: After Cascadia, my plans are hopefully to continue studying design and music in New York City.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life? I feel that the students of Cascadia should be involved in Student Life; to be able to create and maintain relationships outside of the classroom environment. It would be a great opportunity for students to interact and connect with many different people during their leisure time.
