Message from the ASO President
To all Los Angeles Mission College students—my name is Sonia Meroian and I am your ASO president for the 2020-2021 school year. Previously, I served as your Senator of Political Affairs for the Spring 2020 semester, a duty through which I was able to grip an understanding of what it truly takes to represent the hardworking students of LAMC. As a Political Science major with an undying passion for leadership and activism, I ran my platform on bolstering participation in club meetings, fundraisers, and other on-campus activities for YOUR collective benefit.
A little about myself—I am an eighteen year old first-generation Armenian immigrant from the Middle East who has always sought to fight for the marginalized and underrepresented, and has done so through whatever means granted. The teachers, professors, and employers of my past have described me as a strong-willed young woman who always takes the initiative to speak up against what is wrong, and proudly encourages what is right. Through this position which I am so grateful to have obtained, I will do my best to act upon their words.
Throughout our journey together, I will still be your peer, your classmate, and your friend-- ready and willing to stand by your side at any time. Contact me! I will always be open to your comments, suggestions, criticism, or general conversation.
To the wonderful things we will do together!
