President-Elect: Bridgit O'Donnell

Bridgit is a sophomore in Whitman from White Plains, New York. When she first arrived on campus, she was looking for ways to get involved. As a Girl Scout her entire life, she was drawn to continue her pursuit to give back to the community. Everything changed when Bridgit heard about Enactus and was brought to a few Team Guatemala sales by her friend during her freshman year, which was when she came to the realization that Enactus was going to be important to her. Bridgit got more invovled with the competition team her sophomore year and began to fall more in love with each project, along with the concept of Enactus. She learned quickly that Enactus allowed her to form unforgettable bonds and build deeper relationships with her classmates, which made her feel closer to the Syracuse community as a whole. Bridgit says "I can already thank Enactus for introducing me to life-long friends and allowing me to grow closer to my now best-friend (@Pattie). Enactus means so much more to me than a club, and I can't wait for this upcoming year."
Vice President of Membership: Pattie Pudasaini
Major: Information Management and Technology & Neuroscience
Pattie is a junior in the iSchool from Schaumburg, Illinois. Being so far away from home and not knowing anyone when she came to Syracuse, she knew first and foremost that she wanted to meet individuals like herself who wanted to make a difference in their community. She had volunteered at hospitals, assisted living facilities, and food shelters growing up, so she wanted to continue her mission to have an impact in the lives of members in her community. After joining Team Guatemala and the competition team her freshman year, she finally felt like she had found her purpose at SU. The Syracuse chapter of Enactus quickly became more than just a club; it became an organization where she got the opportunity to apply her skills for a better cause and surround herself with talented and driven peers. Pattie is currently a project leader for EBV-Web and also a member of the competition team. "Being able to have a meaningful impact on our community, while working with such an inspiring group of people has been one of the most rewarding experiences, and I am so grateful to be a part of this incredible organization."
