Khasai Makhulo '23
SGA Sophomore Senator
I joined SGA because I am interested in issues of representation, conversation and inclusivity. I want to work towards having a more understanding and inclusive community in Middlebury. Some of my goals are increasing conversations about mental health, improving community spaces and increasing conversations across campus. These conversations could be in the form of town hall meetings or panel discussions about various issues on campus and other issues that the student body finds necessary. I am also very passionate about financial equity to lower income students and I am looking forward to increasing resources that make textbooks more affordable and laundry free.

Miguel Sanchez-Tortoledo '23
SGA Sophomore Senator
As Sophomore Senator, my goal is to continue fostering an inclusive community that acknowledges and uplifts the diverse and unique perspectives of every individual on this campus, promoting a safe environment for us to grow, learn, and collaborate. Middlebury has the potential to be a great place for everyone, and with the newly elected leadership, the future of Midd looks better than ever before. As Sophomore Senator, I will continue working on relevant issues like increasing mental health resources, revamping Parton Health Center’s appointment scheduling for increased access, improving cross-campus wifi, advocating for higher student pay, improving dining halls, and passing legislation on bills that are vital in cultivating a better Middlebury that fulfills every student’s needs.
