Next year’s activities commissioner Lauren Avazian eagerly awaits to plan school events.

Colette Cosyn – President

Q: What made you want to run for this position?

A: I ran for this position because of my genuine love for the school.

Q: What are your goals for next year?

A: I’d like to further unify the school. Woodbridge is especially known for its pride in Irvine, so I just want to even further that, and I don’t think thats possible without participation from everyone. My primary goal is to reach out to every single student on campus and reach every demographic…so our school spirit and pride can progress even further, and everyone can share the same love for their school. Another one of my goals is to manage ASB so that all members are productive and helpful and accessible to the entire student body.

Kian Heiat – Vice President

Q: Why did you choose to run for VP?

A: I just really wanted to make a bigger impact on the school. I already had a year of ASB experience, so I heard a lot about the problems of people, I did a bunch of surveys through the Human Relations Commissioner position, and it was there [that] I found out a lot about the issues here, and [in] taking a bigger role like Vice President I can make more of a difference and [help] resolve those issues and help kind of make amends to those things.

Q: What are your goals for next year?

A: My goal as being Vice President for next year is to really help further improve the school after the seniors this year. We’ve gotten a lot to help out, and I want to expand on that, and I want to make everyone on ASB the best leaders [they can be], and I want to make Woodbridge a really fun place where everyone feels safe and comfortable to be at.

Lauren Avazian – Activities Commissioner

Q: Why did you choose to run for activities commissioner this year?

A: Because I really liked homecoming this year, and I wanted to make it good next year, and I really like the dances.

Q: What are your goals for next year?

A: To make homecoming just as good as it was this year and to make it super awesome. Next year, I want to make homecoming super awesome and fun and to make Air guitar and the spring dance really fun as well because they are really fun, and I want everyone to go and [be] spirited.

Kaito Ajiro – Boys Sports Commissioner

Q: Why did you decide to run for boys sports commissioner?

A: Since I’m on class council this year, I just thought, why not ASB? I’m also in two sports. I was really close to Shuntaro, and he’s this year’s boys sports, so I got to talk to him a lot about boys sports, and that position just really kind of interested me.

Q: What are your goals for next year?

A: Next year, I really want to get [more sport attention]. For example, my sport, water polo, doesn’t get too much audience, so [with] other sports that don’t get as much attention, I want to try to get more attention to them. Also, [another goal is] keeping the high attention other sports like football and basketball [have]. They have a lot of people come to the games, which is great. I love that, but also like other sports…could use a little bit more attention.

Ai Kaisho – Girls Sports Commissioner

Q: Why did you choose to run for girls sports commissioner?

A: I wanted to run because… [I want to give] equal representation to all sports. This year, they did a better job… with recognizing all of the athletes that went to league finals and CIF and stuff, but its just that wrestling really didn’t get that recognition this year. I think that was the big thing, just equal representation.

Q: So what would be your main goal for next year?

A: My goals are…equal representation, but also…actually [trying] to get people to go to all the other games [besides football] that a lot of people don’t go to like soccer…tennis, track and cross country and stuff like that.
