Hi everyone! My name is Malika Shetty, and I am Planet Longhorn’s President for the Spring 2021 semester. I am a second year Neuroscience major pursuing a minor in Law, Justice and Society from Houston,Texas. Having been a member and officer of Planet Longhorn for the past two years I can say with full confidence that this organization is more a family than a student org. Having met some of my best friends and made unforgettable memories my hope is to share the love I have for Planet Longhorn with all of you. If you have any questions about Planet Longhorn feel free to reach out to me at malika.shetty@utexas.edu and Hook 'Em Horns!

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, Marhaba (Hello in Arabic)! I’m Celine and I’m thrilled to be your Historian this semester. My responsibilities include keeping track of memberships and updating points.

I’m also very passionate about languages and culture. I speak French, Arabic, and I’m learning Spanish and I’m always looking for someone to practice with!
