“The person who has had the biggest impact on me in Chamber would be Wesley Meier. From the moment I entered the club, he's been kind of a mentor for me. Chamber really prides itself on hard work, humility and unity, and I think that Wesley was the perfect embodiment of those three traits. He really emphasized humble service and really taught me what that looks like on a day-to-day basis, and when it comes to events, what it means to do the dirty work that other people don't necessarily enjoy doing, but needs to get done at the end of the day.
“‘Dirty work’ in Chamber is pretty much anything. A lot of people don't realize the breadth of the things that we get to do. When it comes to Homecoming or Diadeloso, we're the ones contacting musicians and artists that we want to have on campus. So we handle all those logistics, and we get the food trucks to come to campus, but we're also the people putting up all the tables and chairs and putting up the bike racks. It’s the more mundane tasks that aren't exactly glorified, or even get noticed or recognized for that matter. …
“It's not that I'm not patient, but I've definitely learned to be more patient because of Wesley. Because his personality is such that he can just put up with a lot and keep going, and I think that that's a really valuable trait and really helps him in a lot of his relationships. That's something I want to model on a day-to-day basis.”
