ASU Executive Vice President
Hi my name is Marlene Enriquez-Zapien! I am currently an applied mathematics major
and hope to transfer to a UC in the near future. I am a non-traditional student due
to the fact that I enrolled at ELAC two years after I graduated high school. I also
participate in the MESA program and work as an SI Coach for the Math Department which
have helped me develop my communication skills with students and faculty. I’m looking
forward to engaging with any students who have any questions about programs and benefits
offered here at ELAC.
ASU Vice President of Finance
As a returning member to the ASU board, I hope to be a better leader, student and
friend. I want to start this academic school year strong, motivated and impactful
in all areas; not just on campus but also around the ELAC, South Gate community and
in my studies. If you see me walking around, don’t hesitate to start a conversation.
For the most part, I’m very extrovert. If you have any questions, student related
issues or want more information on ASU, feel free to contact me: Casillas.email@example.com

Hello ELAC Students! My name is Anthony Dominguez and I am the first Vice President
of Advocacy. I am a Biochemistry major and hope to transfer to a UC for Fall 2019.
This is my second time joining the ASU board and I hope that I can make it better
for this upcoming year. I want to inform students on not only what ASU offers but

Hello! Due to my passion for social justice I decided to be part of Associated Student
Union Government. I would like to continue advocating for students and keep helping/create
events that will benefit ALL students. My major is Child Development; I would like
to be an Elementary School Teacher when I earn my BA. Later on in my career when I

promotional things to the 1K scholarship that we offer. Also remember that everything

ASU Chief Delegate
Greetings everyone! My name is Allissa Alexandria Diaz, and I am happy to act as your
Chief Delegate for Associated Student Union at East Los Angles College. I understand
the key to bringing a community together of a specific concentration to create a support
system of a similar culture is important. As a student and representative of East
Los Angeles College, I am now honored to act as your bridge between the ASU Government
to promote cultivation and diversity of all cultures. My intention is to give support
through understanding and direction for all. I believe that we can altogether, reach
the objective of development for every student through a powerful sense of commitment
and unity within our campus. As a non-traditional student who has faced adversity
throughout my academic career, and changed my major multiple times before selecting
a major that I am now fulfilled with; gratifies me to leave my footprints behind by
giving back to the ELAC community before my farewell when I transfer. I encourage
all of you to explore your resources on campus for tutoring and guidance for student
success. I was once a student with no guidance, who was unaware of resources that
were available and beneficial for my success. My adverse experiences have inspired
me to pass along a helpful message as a small token of gratitude, that I hope you
all will come to appreciate and carry with you throughout life; effort, perseverance,
and grit is omnipotent over wit or talent. Please feel comfortable to reach out, and
communicate with me, or any of our ASU officers for any assistance. All are welcome
to the ASU office for further questions about ASU membership benefits or information
on campus resources. I am delighted to be your connection for student advocacy and
diversity to make life a little easier, and enjoyable for academic success, while
reaching your career goals.
