Meet the Leadership Team
Hello! My name is Martha and I am a fourth year student Science, Technology, and major with a Nonviolence Interdisciplinary Studies minor at Cal Poly Pomona. I am one of the co-chairs for Welcome Week 2018, and this is my fourth year being involved in Welcome Week. Maintaining a schedule and having something that constantly enriches my brain are two things that I have learned to curate while being in college. As much as I passionately love helping others, I wholeheartedly enjoy recharging myself by being alone. To help you out with my personality traits, I am an ENFP and a Slytherin. Naruto is my current anime obsession; please feel free to stop me to discuss anything and all things Naruto!
Hello! Welcome to my bio! My name is Gavin Smedt. I am a second year, Chemical Engineering major from the Bay Area. I am also one of the Co-Chairs for Welcome Week 2018. As part of the Welcome Week Leadership Team, we will do our very best to provide guidance and direction for all first-year students entering Cal Poly Pomona in a fun and inviting way. Aside from planning Welcome Week, I enjoy partaking in various activities. The Harry Potter series has been part of my life since day one! I also enjoy doing origami, learning new languages, and hanging out with friends! I look forward to seeing you all during this year's Welcome Week!
