Email:   senatorngo@asun.unr.edu

Olivia Ngo is a sophomore majoring in Musical Theater and minoring in Political Communications and Advocacy. She is a member of the Music Student Council, Treasurer of the pre-professional organization RenoACDA, and Vice President of the revived API Student Organization. She is also an avid sitcom watcher and bobarista.

Olivia is a former legislative intern, and now has the privilege of serving as Senator for the College of Liberal Arts in the 89th Session. She has tackled a variety of projects surrounding inclusivity for marginalized communities, diversifying academia, housing equity, domestic violence resources, student representation on the Board of Regents, and more. Under her leadership as Chair, the Committee on Democratic Civic Engagement executed multiple service projects to connect with students from all walks of life, and is currently working to engage Nevada voters for the midterms and advocate for student needs from the local to national level. She also sits on the Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion where she works closely with the Multicultural Center on outreach and resources to cultivate a sense of belonging for minority students.

Olivia’s versatility, empathy, and ability to communicate the need for progress makes her a passionate candidate. She understands the power of the collective voice and will work diligently to center student experiences as the spark of institutional change. She would be honored to serve this incredible college once again in the 90th Session. Olivia is excited to speak with voters, and hopes everyone is staying healthy, compassionate, and civically engaged.
