Hey guys! My name is Edson Santos, and I am Planet Longhorn’s President for the Fall 2020 semester. I am a third year Economics major from Luanda, Angola. I have been in Planet Longhorn since my first semester at UT, and each year I have learned more and more about the commitment level it takes to solve the concerns and improve the condition of our so loved organization. Planet Longhorn is an important part of me, it’s where I’ve met my bestfriends, and where I’ve made some of my best memories. It’s beyond a student organization, it really feels like family !

Hi!! I’m Emma Liisa and I’m the treasurer of PL, so I handle everything that has to do with money. If you have any questions about membership dues or costs of specific events, you can contact me! I’m an International Relations & Global Studies, and Economics double major in the Liberal Arts Honors program. I moved to the U.S. six years ago from Tallinn, Estonia and I am Swedish-Estonian! I love to bake, spend time with family/friends, watch TV shows, and to learn languages. PL, to me, means surrounding myself with a diverse group of people from all over the world! It’s so fun to go to all the PL events and learn more about the global community present at UT!! Hook ‘em

Hey y’all! My name is Ishita Murthy and I am your Director of Business Relations! I’m responsible for Planet Longhorn’s contact with businesses and arranging sponsorships for our organization! I am majoring in Biological Sciences with a minor in Business Studies. I love to explore the world, listen to all kinds of music, learn Muay Thai and bake. My favorite show is Grey’s Anatomy but I watch a lot of thrillers and reality TV as well! I’m born and raised in a melting pot of cultures in Singapore and am ever curious to learn about different cultures and try different cuisines.

Hey everyone! My name is Nina Habib and this semester I will be your Community Affairs Director! My responsibility for PL includes recruiting and outreach to other student orgs on campus to increase our member numbers, as well as handling events like International week. I’m your go-to person if you want to learn more info about Planet Longhorn! I am a junior International Relations and Plan II double major, obtaining a certificate in global management! Some of my hobbies include: investing, traveling, cooking, and binging tv shows (currently, I’m binging Avatar and The 4400). As an Ethiopian/Yemeni American, I think it is important to broaden my knowledge in terms of becoming culturally aware of those that surround me. I’ve been in Planet Longhorn since the beginning of my freshman year. This org is the most special one to me on campus because of the amazing, close friends that I’ve gotten over the years. The connections I’ve made, and the increased cultural knowledge that I have learned are so valuable to me. Planet Longhorn is an organization everyone should join!

My role is to update members on all info related to PL events and help you communicate with the officer team. If you have any Qs about Planet Longhorn feel free to DM our Insta, FB or send us a Snap. A little about me I am a sophomore Neuroscience Major getting a minor in Psychology. I love meeting new people, listening to music (too much), playing the piano, and tennis, so if anyone wants to hit this year or go for a concert don’t hesitate to reach out . I joined PL halfway through my freshman year and it was the greatest decision I could have made. Not only are the officers and members phenomenal but having the opportunity to learn about cultures I was previously never exposed to has been the most rewarding aspect of being involved with Planet Longhorn. I am most definitely looking forward to making this semester amazing for all of you and can’t wait to be back in Austin
