I am so grateful to be able to serve as the Chair of the CSF Committee this year - it feels like a culmination of great learning and relationship building over my past two years on the Committee. As someone interested in earth-focused development and enacting sustainable living in real time, it's so exciting to be involved in an organization like the CSF. I love that we're able to constantly observe growth, change, and innovation happening right here at UW, and it's an honor to be a part of the future. I look forward to all the work we're going to accomplish together.

Lianna Rzajeva (She/Her)
My passion in promoting the integrity and well-being of the environment and the values I have for people-led projects has led me to my involvement with the CSF at UW. I see CSF as a great opportunity for students from all backgrounds to come together and develop programs that promote greater unity, safety, and sustainable practices on campus. I value the position I have on this committee, and hope to utilize this opportunity in advocating for stronger, meaningful interactions between the student body and our surrounding environment. Other than CSF, you can find me exploring a good book, playing frisbee, or working with a disposable camera.

Daaniya’s interest in the environment began in high school, but she became passionate about campus sustainability and how climate issues disproportionately affect lower socioeconomic classes as well as communities of colour whilst in college. As Daaniya begins her graduate degree in Environmental Health, she is excited about working with CSF to help foster solutions based in environmental and social justice and to provide a voice for her local UW community!

Hadi Nazirool Bin Yusri ( He/Him)
Student Advisory Board (OMAD) Representative
Joining CSF for the second year is definitely a precious opportunity for me to simply keep learning, especially within the major changes happening by the global pandemic and the racial injustice issues, which had switched lots of views to the visions of CSF. I believe that representing the ECC community and knowing their demands will broaden the prospects included in the context of sustainability to help the general public to understand the importance of advocacy within various sizes of groups. Regardless of the transition to go virtual, I am super excited to see upcoming projects that are about to raise the needs of actions for a greater environment and society.
I have come to realize how exciting and impactful being a part of a student-led project can be after assisting in the leadership of a CSF funded project my junior year. The sense of fulfillment and joy in completing a project you're passionate about is truly unparalleled. By being a part of the Campus Sustainability Fund Committee, I hope to ensure students can access what they need to continue to advocate, educate, and connect through sustainability all the while bettering our campus and community. I am so excited to see all the grand ideas my peers have for justice, community, and the planet and to meet and engage with our future change-makers and planet-fixers.
