Student Rights Senator
Christie L Burgess
Major: Criminology and Criminal Justice
I joined ASSOU to help my fellow students achieve their full potential while simultaneously protecting their rights and autonomy. I have been a chef for 15 years, I am a mom and a wife. I have been a social activist all my life. My grandmother took me to my first protest at age 3 fighting to keep the age of retirement from rising, I wore a sign that read " I will be 65 someday.' I have always taken a stand to protect the innocent and I root for the underdog every chance I get. At 36 I've seen my share of injustices so when Josh asked me to take this seat I jumped at the chance. I love my job as an ASSOU Senator and look forward to 2013.
