Ariella Riapos, ’18
Ariella is a sophomore with a major in Political Science. She has always been passionate about social justice and politics and is extremely excited to be working as a Vote Everywhere Ambassador. She firmly believes that voting is one of our most important rights, one that many people spent years fighting for, and as citizens it is our duty to participate in the political process. Her goal is to educate as many people as possible on the political system and how big of an impact the people have on our government through voting. Formerly a BFA Acting for FTVC major, she loves making connections with new people and using art as a means to communicate messages of social justice and activism. Ariella hopes to some day hold public office and bring much-needed Latino representation into U.S. government.

As a Vote Everywhere Ambassador, she hopes to not only educate her peers but also leave a lasting positive impact.
