Race for 2010: Party of Five
Written by Bwog Staff
This week, Bwog will be featuring candidates for leadership of the Columbia College class of 2010. Tools? Visionaries? You decide–vote next Tuesday!
President, Party: AJ Pascua, Party of Five
Hometown: Union City, California
The man: I’d normally refer you to my publicist, Mark Zuckerberg. But I’ll make an exception. My name is Anthony Guiuan (Ghee -wan) Pascua Jr. but I go by AJ. I’m a political science major and I want to practice law in the future. I live for conversation and I love to watch comedies; I’m not much of an intellectual but I try. One of my favorite things to do here is to dissolve the palpable awkwardness of elevator rides. Music: hip hop and alternative, and even a little Beethoven.
The plan: As president, I would like to actually inspire and catalyze change. Fortunately, student government in college, unlike that in high school, can turn thoughts (or at least some) into action. I’ll make it my priority to communicate the concerns of the Class of 2010 to the respective Columbia departments and administrators in an effective and efficient manner. If I have to stand in front of Bollinger’s house to make sure that our class’ concerns are merely acknowledged then I’ll do it. Miscommunication is truly the root of most, if not all, problems; miscommunication is therefore my sworn enemy.
Historical figure with whom he most identifies: Well, according to Quiz Galaxy, I most identify with Amelia Earhart. I guess it’s the boobs and my aeronautical prowess.
