Hahahahaha! Meet your final #SeniorSpotlight from the men’s squad, Aisha Demachkie!
Aisha is from Montecito, CA and is a Public Policy Major with a cognate in Political Science. Aisha began her rowing career at the University of Connecticut before coming to UCSB last year where she quickly became an integral part of the team. On the water she can be heard giggling into the microphone and even arguing with race officials about carrying 1 ounce of weight, and off the water she can be heard ranting about a series of civil rights issues as she is the team social justice warrior. One of her favorite parts about coxing was being in the 2V8 this year and having a boat full of best friends to tow her around or when her stroke seat would drip sweat on her foot as he came into the catch. Some of Aisha’s hobbies include “working” on her senior thesis, pretending to be an Olympic gymnast, and managing the scooping of gelato at Montecito’s very own Here's the Scoop©️. Check out the comments to see her latest trick in preparation for Tokyo 2020.

Introducing your next #SeniorSpotlight from the men’s squad, Christine Pang!
Christine is a hot shot local plant nerd and lifestyle photographer currently finishing up her environmental and art degree at UCSB. The lady behind the camera for many of the photos that you’ve seen, Christine is from San Francisco, where her passion for photography started 8 years ago. In college, she found a new passion for being a coxswain for the Men’s Rowing Team. Her favorite thing about rowing is either making intense eye contact with whoever is stroking the boat, or finishing on the good side of the beep beep. When she’s not seen in practices and in races (no actually, do you see her? She slips into the bow of the 4+), she can be found editing photos to make her friends look like models or sharing very very cool facts from a 500+ page plant book she wrote.

Meet Sam Venable, your next men’s squad #SeniorSpotlight.
Sam spent this season as a standout member of the men’s 2V8+. A transfer from UCSD, he is currently finishing up his geophysics major and preparing for grad school. He is originally from Ventura, California, and got into rowing to find a way to keep in shape while in college. His favorite part of rowing is being able to call Lake Cachuma “home” and to be outside, in the mountains and on the water, each day. When he’s not ripping fat puddles in 5 SEAT of the Raznick with his brothers, you can find Sam sleep walking 👻, open eyed, down DP, in a paranormal dream. He will be pursuing a civil engineering masters degree at Santa Clara after graduation.

Wrapping up your women’s squad #SeniorSpotlights, meet Tayler Young!
While she may be a permanent resident of bow seat of the pair, Tayler is a fourth year legacy rower from Orange County. Despite a few commitment issues (3 changes of majors), she will be graduating with a double major in History and Sociology. When she’s not organizing vans or steering the pair into buoys, Tayler’s hobbies include napping and annoying people with useless British history facts. Her favorite thing about rowing is the feeling of accomplishment that comes from finishing a hard erg piece or water practice. In her words, “We may have died, but at least we died together!”

Meet your next women’s squad #SeniorSpotlight, Melanee Robles!
Melanee is a Biology major and Russian minor from Woodland, CA. Her favorite thing about rowing is anytime she’s not getting last place in the novice 4 race. She also loves having friends who are all working towards the same goal as her and who she gets to watch sun rises with everyday. Melanee’s favorite hobbies are squatting people, dressing up as Shrek, thinking about her cat, wishing she was back in Russia (in case she hadn’t already told you she studied abroad there), and staring at people’s teeth. She can’t wait to be a dentist and get paid to do it.
