My name is Natasha Pruhs and I am the director of Emerging Leaders this year! I have been involved in WSUSA for 3 years and have been an Emerging Leader mentor for 2 of those years. This will be my 4th year in school and I am going into dental hygiene and working towards a minor in art. I enjoy hiking, listening to and creating music, Disneyland, dancing, and singing. The mountains are my backyard, Ben Howard is my favorite singer, and I like pretending I’m a Disney Princess. I am looking forward to an amazing year in Emerging Leaders! Get ready for incredible leadership experiences!

Hey Guys! So I am Andres, I am a senior here at the greatest university in Utah. I will be graduating at the end of this school year with degrees in Professional Sales and Spanish-Commercial Emphasis. This will be my second year in WSUSA, I was on the LEAD team last year and had a blast. A little about me, I love doing anything active. I’ve played sports my whole life and love to be out competing. I play soccer, basketball, volleyball, and I trail run. I am excited to be a mentor this coming year and share my love for Weber State and all it has to offer. I hope if there is one thing I can share with the Emerging Leaders, it’s that I am kind of a big deal. Peace!

Hello! My name is Mackenzie Stokes (but I prefer Kenzie), and I am so excited to be an Emerging Leader Mentor this year! I am a sophomore here at Weber State, and I am majoring in social work and minoring in women and gender studies. I like to read and would rather watch a good documentary over a movie any day! Parks and Recreation is my favorite show and Leslie Knope is my spirit animal. I love traveling and volunteering, and that is why I’m saving up to go on a volunteer trip to India next summer! I love to learn and I know that you guys are going to teach me so much this year! I am so happy to be your mentor, and I can’t wait for all the fun we are going to have!

What's up Emergies! It's your boy Andrew. I'll save you the trouble of Facebook stalking me by telling a little about myself here. I served an LDS mission in Concepcion, Chile and I'm pursuing my bachelors in business administration with an art minor. I'm very artistic and excel in stone carving and 3D art. I am an Emerging Leader graduate myself and I've also served as a Wildcat Trainer prior to becoming an Emerging Leader Mentor. I love shoes, running, and I speak fluent sarcasm! If you have anymore questions hit me up!
