Hi guys! My name is Gabe, I'm super stoked to be an Emerging Leader mentor this year! I'm going into Web Design and Chinese (I know, kind of a weird mix). I also just spent the summer being an EFY counselor, so trust me, I know how to party! I enjoy the finer things in life, like snowboarding and pizza. I was also an Emerging Leader my freshman year, and it really impacted me with transitioning to college. Being involved on campus is the greatest decision I made here at Weber. It opened up so many more doors and I've met so many amazing people because of it. I'm so excited for this year, it's gonna be killer!

Hi guys, I'm Jaclynn Detamore, but call me Jackie. I am majoring in Nursing and too excited for it! I had the opportunity to be an Emerging Leader my first year of college (guys, it's literally the coolest thing). I recently returned home from serving an LDS mission in the Ohio Columbus Mission. I freak out at anything that is purple (THANK YOU to Weber State for supporting my love of purple). I also absolutely love Buffalo Wild Wings so let's go especially on Tuesday's and Thursday's. I enjoy watching football, playing volleyball, and taking LOTS of naps. My friends are my sidekicks and my family is everything to me. I love serving others and helping others find JOY this is journey we call life. Be ready to party this year. I'm SO excited to hang out with you all!!! Much love xoxo.

Hey guys! My name is Kenzie and I am so excited to be a mentor and serve you guys throughout this year! I am a junior majoring in Dental Hygiene, and am finishing up some prerequisites to apply to the program this coming January. I love soccer, eating food, and playing the piano. My Weber experience thus far has been so amazing and being an Emerging Leader last school year made a major impact on my school life. Being involved is the absolute greatest! I hope to be able to do the same for you all! This year will rock!

Jesus GarciaJesus Garcia

What up peeps? My name is Jesus (Hey-Soos, Heh-Soos, or Jeezus - whatever you prefer, as long as it's not Jose) and I will be your mentor this year! I'll let you know a little about myself before you go and Facebook stalk me. I'm a senior here at Weber State where I'm majoring in Social Work with a minor in Political Science with the hopes of working with underrepresented high school students and helping them transition into college. I've been involved with WSUSAfor two years, previously as an Emerging Leader mentor and an Event Program Coordinator for the Davis Programming Board, and I've absolutely loved it! I'm a natural couch potato, but I love trying new things! For example, I've spent two summer interning in Washington, D.C., the most recent was with Senator Hatch's office. I'm so excited and can't wait to see where this year takes us!
