Why are you running for African-American Senator?
I was encouraged to do so by the current senator. Not to mention, after sitting in on a senate meeting and NOT being able to vote made me want to get involved.
What do you hope to accomplish as African-American Senator if you’re elected?
I would simply like to ensure that organizations on campus that deal with or are related to the African American Student have a voice. I would also like to ensure that as African American student the voices of our African Students, like those in ASA, are heard as well.
[Ed. note: I had also asked “Why should SMU students vote for you?”; “What’s your favorite thing about SMU?”; and “What, if anything, needs to change at SMU?” Young did not answer them.]
