Tiana Martinez '18
Major: Politics, American Studies, Legal Studies 
Hometown: Miami, FL 

Involvement on campus: Student Service Bureau: Co-President, Art Studios Monitor, Waltham Group: Spectrum 

What is your favorite part of your role? Serving the SSB Team as the Staff Relations president challenged me to employ the value of communication in our business. The team and I have created a great communication amongst each other. Our little SSB family is my favorite part!

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? I started working for SSB Fall 2014 and worked myself up from that point on - A prime example of the American Dream. As cliché it is, I've learned that with hard work anything is possible. 

What made you get involved? When arriving to Brandeis, I aimed to make the best out of my college career and wanted to do the same for others. Whether it was bringing outside services onto campus and/or planning subsidized events for the student body, bringing positive experiences for the community was one of my priorities.
