As her workmate on the RCSA Executive Board and her friend, I can easily say that Ana is absolutely brilliant. As one of the Directors of Programming, she is a powerhouse, co-directing all initiatives for 26 successful programs per quarter for the residential life community. If there is anyone who knows how to make the most out of their college experience, it is Ana. She is not afraid to voice her opinions and always contributes ideas, making her a valued member on the team. Though she takes her work very seriously, her bubbly and humorous personality creates a fun and friendly environment that everyone loves. On and off campus, in and out of the classroom, Ana shows exemplary leadership and always holds herself with grace and poise. She values people’s strengths, is a team player, and encourages people to reach for their dreams. Not only is Ana a leader on the board, she is seen as a resource and a friend on campus. She always has everyone’s best interest at heart, and although very busy, is always willing to help others. Ana, without a doubt, is an inspiration. She will invest her time and effort to help anyone, and encourages her peers to grow. Her hard work and dedication is constantly exemplified through all her contributions to UW. She has become a valuable gem on the RCSA Executive Board and it is an honor to work with her. Ana’s devotion to our school and region most definitely deserves a recognition!
Ana is one of the hardest working individuals I have had the pleasure of meeting in my time at the University of Washington. Having known Ana since she first came to our campus as an ambitious first year student I can truly say that she has not only grown as a person but also that she has made an impact on the UW community. I have seen Ana take on roles that would otherwise be difficult to a newcomer and navigate through them with such grace and professionalism that one could not tell that she was just a student. Ana has helped make the residential community a more enjoyable and lively place to be in her two year being involved on the Programming Board. Not only has Ana contributed to the on campus community but through her involvement with ASUW she as also become an advocate for the common student on our campus. Ana is not even halfway through her time at our campus and already she has made an impact much more noticeable than others around her. I am certain that she will continue to make the University of Washington a better place in the years she has left here, and for that she deserves recognition.
Ana is an exceptional representation of the quality of women that the UW cultivates. While keeping high academic excellence, she works as the Director of Programming for the Residential Communities Student Association to plan community events for students in the residence halls. She holds this job with class and professionalism, even when the craziness of event planning arises. She has managed many changes in staff extremely well, and always leads her employees with positivity. Aside from her involvement in RCSA, she interns for the ASUW, is a member of the Undergraduate Women in Business Association, and performs musical theater with UW’s Stage Notes. Every one who has the chance to get to know her knows that she is a co-worker and friend who would do anything for you in any situation.
