CLASS OF 2019
Chris Umanzor, President
I’m a WWS major from New Jersey and really look forward to the opportunity to serve on USG this next year. Coming from a diverse background, my goal in working with USG is to try to provide access to opportunities for marginalized and underserved groups on campus, especially the Latinx and First-generation/Low-income communities. Outside of USG, I also serve on Princeton Latino y Amigos’ Executive Board, volunteer with El Centro, and am a Head Fellow for the Scholars Institute Fellowship Program (SIFP).
Susan Liu, Vice President
I am so excited to represent the Class of 2021 in the USG this year. I hope to be an advocate for my class and to make the USG accessible to everyone. I also seek to increase mental health resources, women's leadership in the faculty, and textbook availability for students on financial aid. Finally, I would like to help implement changes to the school calendar. Outside of USG, I am a member of the Club Sailing team, a copy editor for the Daily Princetonian, and a member of the Student Volunteers Council. Being from Atlanta, I am a huge fan of college football, Chick-fil-a, and peaches.
Carly Bonnet, Secretary
It's awesome to return as a U-Councilor with USG. In the past I have worked on the Eating Club Referendum Response team and the women's leadership task force, and look forward to continuing work as the team leader of the women's leadership task force. I'm so excited to be involved in USG, as it is a body with such potential for effecting lasting positive change on campus. I am a junior in the economics department, with certificates in finance and environmental studies. On campus I'm also involved in environmental sustainability and serve as an RCA in Wilson. Feel free to send me a message or email -- I would love to hear from you!

CLASS OF 2020
Alaa Ghoneim, President
I am thrilled and honored to represent the Class of 2020 in the USG Senate this year. As a member of USG my priorities are to increase student involvement, transparency, and clarity in regard to student government, and create a more active and engaged campus that looks outward as well as inward when thinking about progress and reform. I will be working with the Financial Reform Committee and the Transparency Task Force to help accomplish these goals, and I am eager to hear any input that you may have! Outside of USG I work with the Pace Center, specifically Breakout Princeton, to help students engage in service-learning opportunities and will serve as an RCA at Rocky starting next fall! I was born and raised in Nederland, Texas and will do anything for sushi.
Ellen Scott-Young, Vice President
This semester is about strengthening student rights by empowering student-led organizations. As the leader of the Financial Reform group, I hope to increase funding sources for Projects Board and more generally facilitate funding requests by students. Additionally, I want to tackle the question of how best to improve advising on campus. But more importantly, I absolutely love Wawa, advocacy work, and helping others.
