Hi y'all! I’m Katelynn Vinegas (She/Her/Hers), Kate for short, and I’ll be your Associated Students Liaison this year! I serve as a representative for AB Samahan, giving reports about what’s going on in A.S. as well as fill allocated seats by A.S. and participate in the Student Diversity Commission. My goal is to connect students to all their possible resources on campus (we’re paying like thousands of dollars for this, we gonna get the bang for our buck).
I am a third year Chemistry major with an emphasis in Biochemistry so if you ever need any help, or just someone to rant to about classes, I’m your girl! (-: I was born and raised in San Diego or more specifically, Chula Vista, where basically everyone knows everything about each other. In my free time, I love binge-watching Netflix or teen romcoms, going to the beach, spending hours on TikTok, stress baking, or reading/writing! I also love listening to different kinds of music. Since quarantine began, I picked up different hobbies like baking and surfing as well as getting back into reading - I’m always open to new recommendations!
Going into my first year and even second of SDSU, I was determined to keep to myself. I was content with having a small circle and even if I wasn’t totally happy all the time, I preferred to stay in my comfort zone. By chance, however, AB Samahan gave me so many different things. They gave me a chance to step out of my comfort zone, new and lifelong friendships, and an entire family that I can rely on. I went from doing almost nothing at SDSU to acting and dancing in FCN and being on LegacyBoard (FCN 35 and Cristal will always have my heart (-: <3). I also participate in other organizations on campus so I’m a big advocate for getting involved! If there’s one thing I know, AB Samahan is my safe haven.
Everything is kinda overwhelming right now but I’m so excited to meet everyone and please come say hi if you see me around! If you want to get to know me more, my socials are:
