Rachel Andrews
SFAC Chair,
 Junior Rep

Hi! My name is Rachel Andrews and I am a third-year English major from Lake Forest, Orange County. I am thrilled to serve as this year’s chair for the Student Fee Advisory Committee! I am interested in serving students needs all across the board, whether it be housing insecurity, retention, mental and psychological services, tutoring, etc. I am strongly in support of any service that helps to ameliorate student life. On that note I believe student fees should go directly back to students, and I will be working diligently to serve the UCSB undergraduate community and ensure that their fees are utilized in a responsible and impactful manner. Aside from chairing SFAC, I am also the fiscal coordinating chair for A.S. Womxn’s Commission and I am a Community Empowerment and Advocacy intern at the MultiCultural Center. My passions include social justice, creative writing, and finance! If any of these interest you, and especially if you are a third year, feel free to reach out! 


Alexis Xa
Junior Rep

Hello! My name is Alexis Xa, and I am a sociology major who was born and raised in Orange County, CA. I am extremely honored to serve as one of SFAC's two second-year representatives! Some of the most important student-related issues I'm interested in at UCSB include food insecurity and tuition costs. I strongly believe that a basic need such as food should not be a struggle for any student at UCSB, let alone any student in general. In addition, tuition costs are higher than they have ever been, and I see this as an alarming problem, especially for students who may already be struggling with the entire college process. I learned about SFAC halfway through my first year at UCSB, and I am grateful to be part of a committee where I can further educate myself about what happens on this campus.

Besides SFAC, other passions and interests of mine include leadership development (I serve as a leadership coach for various leadership programs in the summer), music (I am also a part of AS Program Board), and fashion! Please reach out to me if you have questions about anything, especially if you're a second year. Thanks!

Michael Zargari

Sophmore Rep

Hey Gauchos! My name is Michael Zargari and I am a sophomore representative for the Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC). I am a second year Actuarial Science major and Iranian Studies + Translation Studies double minor. In addition to the committee, I am also the Executive Co-Chair of the Promise Scholars Organization where we put on events and quarterly study jams for the Promise Scholar community to strengthen the relationships between students of diverse backgrounds. On my freetime, I like hanging out with my family and friends and exploring the city, preferably going hiking when possible. Additionally, I am involved with the Actuarial Association, Persian Club, Chabad, Hillel, and the Associated Students Student Initiated Recruitment and Retention Committee (A.S. SIRRC). As a member of the SFAC committee, I will continue to strive to make sure that student fees are allocated in a cost-effective and efficient manner. I am honored and excited to serve on the board and hope that we can use student fees to enhance every student’s experience from the moment they step foot on campus.


Jeremy Edwards

Graduate Rep 

Hello, my name is Jeremy Edwards! I am a sixth year Ph.D. Candidate in the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education with an emphasis in Cultural and Developmental Studies. My current work involves capturing the cultural and historical practices of access to higher education for Black students in a U.S. context, while also highlighting and providing a narrative for students’ experiences in their preparation for and completion of college. My general research interests include access and equity issues within a socio-educational context, urban education, adolescent youth development and self-concept, and community cultural wealth/capital frameworks. As a continuing SFAC member, I look forward to providing support for initiatives, programs, and services in student affairs that ultimately meet the needs and concerns of the growing student population on campus.
