Emma Buday, '24 (International Relations)

I'm a senior majoring in international relations and pursuing a co-term in sustainability. I am interested in global climate change mitigation policy and sustainable renewable energy development. My Cardinal Quarter experience further exposed me to the ways in which public service is possible, ultimately providing a chance to reflect on personal motivations and career aspirations. I encourage students to partake in the diverse opportunities that Cardinal Quarter has to offer, and I hope to help you start exploring options or work towards achieving current goals! Please reach out if you have any questions or want to chat!

Langston Buddenhagen, '25 (Political Science & Urban Studies)

My name is Langston, and I'm a current junior studying urban studies and public policy. I was born and raised in Oakland, California, a diverse hotspot of community activism, service, and changemaking. As a young man of color from an urban environment with such a unique history, equitable public service that uplifts marginalized communities has always been extremely important to me. This is my second year working as a peer advisor, and I have completed Cardinal Quarters over the last two summers as a policy intern with the San Francisco District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, respectively. I'm excited to share my background and experience with anyone interested in learning more about Cardinal Quarters, law and policy, urban studies, and pathways of public service at Stanford. Come say hi at the Haas Center on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays!

Enrique Flores, '24 (Political Science)

Hey! I’m Enrique, and I’m a fourth-year majoring in political science and a co-term student in sociology. I am stoked to be a peer advisor again this year for Cardinal Quarter. I had a phenomenal time interning for Immigration Equality two summers ago as part of a Haas fellowship and am ecstatic to continue giving back to the Cardinal Quarter community. I hope that through my role as a peer advisor, I can help you find opportunities in public service that align with your future goals!

Cameron Lange, '24 (Political Science & Philosophy)

I’m a political science and philosophy major interested in big normative questions about justice and governance. Feeling uncertain about how to pursue public service post-grad, my two Cardinal Quarter experiences gave me some much-needed clarity about what prosecutorial and state-level legislative work look like. I am grateful for these opportunities and eager to help other students translate their passions into a quarter of service!

I am a recent graduate from the bioengineering program at Stanford and am currently a master's student in the Community Health and Prevention Research program.

Jonny Zients, '24 (Human Biology)

My name is Jonny (he/him), and I am a senior studying human biology with a minor in modern languages. I am passionate about working with community organizations, especially projects that are related to health. I have been a Cardinal Quarter fellow the last two summers through the Stanford Nurse Alumnae Fellowship and the Haas Center Cardinal Quarter Fellowship. I really enjoyed both experiences, learning a lot about myself and gaining valuable insights into my post-college aspirations. I am very grateful for all of the Haas Center’s support and the role it has played in my undergrad experience. This school year I am returning as a Cardinal Quarter Peer Advisor for the second year - I loved being a peer advisor last year and can’t wait for the year ahead. I am really looking forward to getting to know you and supporting you however I can in pursuing an enjoyable and meaningful quarter-long service experience.
