President-elect Nawsin Kamal joined SGi in 2021 as a senator and ran for vice president on the LOVE ticket last year, which she did not win, but later joined the 2022 executive board as speaker of the student senate. Kamal has already been working alongside current President Ethan Burrell on the plan to begin donating meal swipes between St. John’s students. 

“That is a vision both Ethan and I had,” Kamal told The Torch last week. Kamal and Burrell are in talks with the University’s administration regarding the plan’s initiation. 

CRUSH’s platform highlights multiple new initiatives they plan to work on as the newly elected executive board. They want to ensure representation for study abroad, international, LGBTQ+ and Staten Island students by establishing committees within SGi to advocate their needs and concerns. As a plan to boost transparency, CRUSH aims to start a SGi-moderated monthly podcast in order to increase communication between the student body and SGi, administrators and student leaders.

The new executive board will be introduced at the April 17 SGi assembly meeting in St. Albert’s Hall Room B70 at 5 p.m.
