Meet The Team
Meet the CSM Volunteer Club Leadership Team! We are excited to help improve the surrounding community through our volunteer efforts.
Hi, I am Jacob Stattenfield and I am currently leading the CSM Volunteer Club from across the Atlantic studying abroad in Barcelona. I started our Volunteer Club to help share my passion for volunteering! I am a philosophy major and aspiring lawyer hoping to strengthen my leadership and teamwork skills through volunteering, all while helping the surrounding community. In my free time I enjoy cooking, woodworking, and playing soccer.
Hello! My name is Samantha Ishikawa and I am a sophomore majoring in film. Growing up, I developed a passion for helping others and bettering my community through volunteering. By creating and informing others of events, I hope to introduce fun volunteering opportunities and share my passion.
Hnin Pwint Phyu (Jewel)
Hi! I’m Jewel, an international student from Burma, majoring in Business Administration. This is my second semester here at CSM and I’ll be the Club Advertiser for this semester. It is one of my passions to help out the people and to give back to the community. Through this experience I hope to make good memories together!
I am a freshman at College of San Mateo studying Business Administration. Before Volunteer Club, I contributed to organizations such as reach out and animal shelters, so joining Vol Club was a no-brainer! In my free time, I enjoy running my bin cleaning business and partaking in sports such as TaeKwonDo and golf. After CSM, I hope to be able to transfer to a top business school.
Hi, I'm Eugene! I'm a current Comp Sci major at CSM. Growing up, I was always taught to give back to my community whenever I had the opportunity to. I hope that through the Volunteer Club I would be able to do that while also sharing the experience volunteering with others as well.

Ashley Kyi Phyu
Hi everyone! I am Aye Mya Kyi Phyu, an international student from Burma. I go by my preferred first name, Ashley. I participated in volunteering activities as a child in my mother’s non-profit organization. Eventually, it started to grow on me. I want to be someone who people can rely on. By serving as a secretary of the Volunteer club, I want to connect with more people and help the community as much as I can.
