Gabe looks dashing wearing a black suit and red tie. He's standing in front of bright green foliage, and we can make out the faintest outline of a modern building in the background.


The role of the ASUC President is to uplift, unify and empower our campus community by acting as the bridge between students and campus administration.  

Chaka Tellem is a fourth-year student studying Political Economy with minors in Public Policy and Race and Law. His passion for advocacy concerning racial, environmental, and social justice grew from his formative years in The Gambia, Dallas, TX, and later Los Angeles, CA. From his family, he learned the importance of environmental preservation and building community strength. His zeal for advocacy and social equity will prevail after his time at UC Berkeley as he intends to pursue a career in law. As President, Chaka will carry these pillars of self into the office. He strives to elevate our community by promoting academic and professional opportunities, environmental justice and sustainability, campus climate and safety, and a smooth post-pandemic return.
