Co-Chairs

Megan lee

Hi everyone! My name is Megan Lee and I’m a third year biopsychology major from Irvine, California. I’m super excited to serve as your CAB co-chair this year! Being a part of CAB has been a huge highlight of my time here at UCSB and has exposed me to so many amazing volunteer opportunities that I would love to help you get involved in as well! I’ve been so inspired and motivated by many fellow Cabbies, and can’t wait to meet you all. Aside from CAB, I love finding new brunch places in SB and doing yoga. Feel free to stop by the CAB office or email me at as-cabcochair@ucsb.edu if you have any questions at all! Peace love CAB <3

anna nguyen

Hi! My name is Anna Nguyen and I am the Co-Chair for CAB this year 🙂 I am a 4th year Sociology major. Volunteering and acts of charity are critical within a community because it helps remind us to connect with one another in a selfless way. My favorite experience is working with a charity that supports orphanages in Vietnam and helps them build security against human trafficking. Another great memory on volunteering is hosting Pho nights for the homeless and seeing them enjoy the pho I made. I am so excited to serve CAB this year and cannot wait to interact with the Cabbies during our events. If I’m not in the CAB office, I am talking myself out of going to the gym and trying new recipes at home. Come stop by my office hours if you have any questions, ideas, or need someone to talk to! You can also reach me by my email at as-cabcochair@ucsb.edu.

Alternative Breaks Co-coordinator

ricky nguyen

Hi, CABbies! I’m Ricky, your Alternative Breaks Co-Coordinator. This year will be my last year at UCSB, and I will miss CAB soooo much! However, we still got one year, so let’s make it one to remember! This year, I will be planning the winter and spring alternative breaks where we spend a week in another part of the country volunteering, meeting great people, eating great food, and doing great things. My experience includes a trip to Texas after Hurricane Harvey as well as a trip to LA’s Audubon Center. In addition to alternative breaks, I have also been CAB’s Public Relations team and Childcare Director. Also, I have volunteered with Hunger/Houseless, Youth, and Animals. You can catch me at some volunteering events or tabling. But if you ever miss me, my office hours are MF 11am to 12pm. Any other questions, you can email me at as-cabalternativebreaks@ucsb.edu

 

Alec Valdez

Howdy! I’m Alec and this is my first and last year as a part of CAB. Although the year has just started, I can confidently say that joining CAB has been one of the best decisions of my college career! I’m a senior History of Public Policy Major studying U.S. and Middle Eastern history as well as Economics. Last year I attended the Alt Breaks trip to Wilmington, NC after Hurricane Florence. The trip made such an impact on me that I decided I wanted to help run the program and now here I am! If you ever want to chat about Alt Breaks, CAB, school stuff, LA sports, the best places to eat around SB or anything else at all, I can usually be found in the CAB offices around 12-2 or after 3:30. Also, feel free to email me at: as-cabalternativebreaks@ucsb.edu. Thanks for reading and I’m looking forward to a great year with all of you!
