Caliph Assagai inspires UC Davis students
By Yinon Raviv
Caliph Assagai ’06 has the room’s full, undivided attention. Every UC Davis student is sitting straight, ramrod straight. All eyes are pointed at him. Not a cell phone in sight.
“I was just elected President of the Associated Students of the University of California, Davis. I just finished my final exams. I was ready to start my summer internship in the Capitol, doing work I’ve dreamt about doing,” he said, pausing. Fifty pairs of eyes in rapt attention, 50 pairs of ears hanging on his every word.
