Sydney SadlerSydney Sadler

I am a rising fourth year from Richmond, VA double majoring in Economics and Media Studies. I have been involved on the Student Life Committee of Student Council since my first semester at UVa, and I am so excited to continue to lead a committee of dedicated, enthusiastic individuals! In my free time, I enjoy photography, dancing, and simply loving life. Aside from Student Council, I am involved in the Media Studies Society, Pancakes for Parkinson’s, and the Inter-Sorority Council.

Poorva Singhal

Hello! I’m a rising third-year from Ashburn, VA and I am currently an undeclared major. Apart from Student Council, I am an active member of Delta Gamma as well as “Sharaara” the all girl competitive Indian dance team. In my free time I enjoy spending time on the corner and on the lawn with my peers, participating in outdoor activities, catching a movie or reading a great book. I’m very excited to be a participating leader in the impact that Student Council is going to have this upcoming year and can’t wait to improve the student experience on grounds!
