Senate Candidate Profile: Kira Monji

College: Dietrich

Why are you running for Undergraduate Student Senate?
Minority representation matters. Senate makes decisions on policies that affect all undergrads, and I want to run to represent the minority groups and to protect and promote our interests.

To you, what is the purpose of the Undergraduate Student Senate?
We care about you. Your opinions, your beliefs, your voices are heard and addressed by your senators to make life at CMU the best it can be.

Why do you consider yourself qualified to serve on the Undergraduate Student Senate?
I have extensive experience in student government as a former President and current Senator, and I represent many different interest groups, including varsity athletics and Tartan Scholars, plus the Asian, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ communities.

Anything else your would like to say/potential voters to know about you?
If you get oat milk with your lattes, you better vote for me. I also work at Capital Grains in Tepper on the weekends, stop by and say hi! (and buy a bowl too)
