New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2010

The Spectacular Six participate in a debate on the hot topic of term limits in New York City and New York State Politics.

Melissa Aurora Diaz Melissa Aurora Diaz (R, C) represented District 39 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator William J. Larkin, Jr. and staunchly cast her vote to not accept term limits. Melissa wowed the house with her ardent appeal to her fellow senators to vote against the MS-14 Bill that was being debated. She suggested that the bill would force representatives to make hasty decisions in an effort to accomplish things and for election purposes. Melissa is a former member of the Hostos Emerging Leaders Program, a member of the Hostos Global Scholars Program and a current member of the Hostos Student Leadership Academy’s Ambassador Program. Melissa had a very busy 2009-2010, performing on stage in a play entitled, “Siempre Se Olvida Algo (You Always Forget Something), singing and performing at her own concert, “Prima Divas: New Voices from the Bronx” and serving as a member of the 2010 National Model United Nations Team, sitting on the Commission on the Status of Women. Melissa also graduated in June 2010 as the Valedictorian, and will be studying at International Relations and Politics at Columbia University in the fall of 2010.
