New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2009

Hostos breaks its own 2008 record and sends eleven students to the 2009 New York State Model Senate!

Norma Sooko Norma Sooko (R) represented District 56 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator Joseph E. Robach. Norma wowed the audience and her fellow model senators with her speech, which was presented in a style of political rhetoric that bordered on filibuster. For her presentation, she garnered a standing ovation from her fellow model senators. Norma is a dedicated Christian and a socially conscious woman who was a member of the Hostos Student Leadership Academy’s Ambassador Program. She often works with the homeless, the hungry and the needy to help them to overcome obstacles in their lives and as an Ambassador she engaged in similar initiatives with her fellow Academy members. Norma graduated in June of this year and will be attending New York University. She was a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society and she was also a participant at the CUNY Corps Kickoff Event with Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
