A familiar face is taking on a new role for Associated Student Body Government (ASBG) this school year.
QuaNisha Smith is the new ASBG president for the Fall 2013 semester.
The new president is entering her term with a direction toward students.
She has plans for events in the near future, such as Soul Fest this month, and plans on continuing to move ideas forward.
“We are students here to advocate for the student body,” Smith stated in an e-mail interview.
Smith’s background with ASBG started with volunteering during former ASBG president Nicholas Aguirre’s term.
With a background in customer service, Smith said she feels that helping people is one of her many passions.
“Helping someone in any way possible brings joy to my soul,” she said.
Throughout her life Smith gained a large number of role models, one of the biggest being former ASBG Vice President Bronche Taylor.
“Bronche Taylor is one of my biggest role models. He inspires me to go BIG in what ever I do and just do it,” Smith said.
Another major influence is her mother.
“My mother…my greatest role model period,” stated Smith.
Before becoming president, Smith held the position of Senator of Activities for the Fall 2012 term of ASBG.
