Born and raised to a working class family in the U.K, Ali decided to venture out of his comfort zone into the wild, wild west of America to see if it had anything to offer him, in terms of his dreams of being a famous pop star. So far he as gotten chronic insomnia and anxiety, but at least he dropped 100lbs! stay tuned to see if it all works out or if he has to return home to work a dead end office job for the rest of his life.


The Event Commissioners assist the Vice President of Student Activities in the planning of all social events and working to promote a vibrant, inclusive, and healthy social scene at CMC. ECs plan and coordinate CMC and 5C social events, making them safe, fun and inclusive.


Ali is excited about revamping TNC's, making them more inclusive and diverse by changing up the locations and themes and music!
