Deena Gharibian

Arts and Humanities Senator

Hello, My name is Deena Gharibian, my pronouns are she/her/hers, and I am the current Senator of Arts and Humanities with the Associated Students. I am a Philosophy and Political Science double major and a member of the UCSD Mock Trial Team. I ran for AS, despite never participating in student government, in order to give students like me a voice on our massive campus. I want to improve the undergraduate experience for those in Arts and Humanities majors by listening to my peers and hopefully instituting meaningful change for future students. Please feel free to send me an email at regarding any questions or comments you may have.
