SENATE LEADERSHIP

IMG_1471 - Hanna Dworkin.JPG

Hi there! My name is Hanna Dworkin and I am a junior studying economics, political science, and philosophy here at BU. I am a student in The Kilachand Honors College, a CAS Dean's Host, and a Student Director for Pearson. My hobbies include making artwork, writing poetry, reading, and petting dogs across the city of Boston. (I firmly believe that Boston is home to the cutest dogs in the world.)

 

I grew up in Lemont, Illinois, a small town just outside of Chicago. Two years ago, coming to school 1,000 miles from home was one of the most difficult decisions I've ever made. But once I took that leap of faith, my life changed. Here at BU, I've learned of the world, made life-long friendships, and most importantly, I've been challenged in ways I didn't know possible. In the face of the changes I see in myself, I am incredibly honored to be senate's chairwoman this year.

 

Boston University should be a place of evolution. Our campus should be a welcoming, inclusive environment, where students feel comfortable to succeed, yet encouraged to step out of their comfort zones. I believe that leadership is most effective when it is rooted in kindness. In uplifting each other, we uplift ourselves. Together, I want to make our campus a better place.

 

Please feel free to reach out to me (hdworkin@bu.edu or sgsen@bu.edu) at any time. I'm always down to meet at Pavement for a bagel :)

SENATE CHIEF OF STAFF
DEEP PATEL
CAS '22

Hey Terriers! My name is Deep Patel and I am a senior from New York City, New York double majoring in economics and political science in the College of Arts and Sciences and Kilachand Honors College. I love spending my free time reading, discovering new music, traveling with friends, going hiking, watching movies (huge Marvel fan), and playing/watching basketball and football. A fun fact about myself is that I am currently studying abroad as an exchange student at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy for the fall semester and within my first two weeks in Italy, I met Jason Derulo while getting gelato with my friends! Here on campus, I am the BU Student Government Chief of Staff for Senate, an undergraduate research fellow for the CERES Institute for Children and Youth, a staff writer for the Boston Political Review, a Dean's Host for the College of Arts and Sciences, a member of the co-ed community service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, a member of the internal business and foreign service fraternity Delta Phi Epsilon, and a volunteer van driver for Student Food Rescue with the Community Service Center. Outside of campus, I am interested in law, economics, and government and have served as a summer fellow with the Mayor's Office of Policy and Planning for the City of Boston during the Kim Janey administration. I also have worked as an intern for Children of Prisoners Europe (Relais Enfants Parents), an NGO based out of Paris that works to advocate for the needs and rights of children with parents in the criminal justice system. For this upcoming year in Boston, I strive to do my part in increasing student outreach within BU Student Government to create a more substantial and continued dialogue between the student body and BU administration. Now that we are all back on campus, I also want to work with my team to plan as many enjoyable and unique events as possible so that the BU community can be more connected than ever. I am always happy to talk about any questions, suggestions, or concerns that anyone may have, especially in regards to improving life on campus and creating a student government whose primary focus is YOU, the students. If you ever want to talk about anything, student government related to not, feel free to shoot me a message! Hope you're all having an incredible semester and wishing you all the best of luck with the rest of the school year!
