"Aladrian was known as our "swiss army knife" and was a great asset to our team. She has a great attitude and strong work ethic."

Katya Armistead, Dean of Students / Director of Office of Student Life, UCSB

"Aladrian is a person with an amazing amount of energy and spunk. She is so much fun to work with because she lets nothing stop her. I have had the pleasure of having Aladrian in a course that I co-taught and then was able to work closely with her on a leadership project. Not only was she thoughtful, insightful, and talented, but she was curious, thought out side of the box, and showed that she really cared for the well being of others. I love working with Aladrian, I can't wait to see what she does next!"
