Meet Tonie Stewart

Having moved across the country in 2022 from their original chapter in Georgia, they are now the Far Western Associate Student Representative. Like many English Majors, they are constantly surrounding themself with books, their favorites allowing them to escape the real world—even just for a moment. Every year they set a goal to read 100 books, and they encourage others to push themselves and set a reading goal.
