Why did you want to be a member of SGA?

Being an SGA Senator provides me with a way to pay back the College of Wooster for a wonderful education. The SGA gives me an opportunity to better serve the college and student body. The Senate is very appealing to me because of the difference I can make in the campus community with my involvement. I have a genuine curiosity for how the school runs and operates. Becoming a member of SGA, I’m able to learn the ins and outs of our school. I was a member of SGA in high school and so it makes sense for me to want to continue this passion. I believe that having a voice is important. This includes everyone, not just me. I understand that it is we, not I that accomplish goals. I love being involved, growing and leading with a student body. Every day, my commitment to leadership drives both the community and myself to new achievements. 

What are your goals to accomplish during this term on SGA?

I believe that I can provide a smoother path for students to make themselves heard. I trust that my involvement in the SGA will help me be identified as a responsible and dedicated individual. With my involvement, I hope to inspire and produce quality results that positively impact our school. My top priority is to create an environment that enhances student’s well-being and overall college experience.

Why did you want to be a member of SGA?

Being an SGA Senator would provide me with the opportunity to serve the college and the student body better, in a way I can repay them for a wonderful life education. I believe that I can provide a smoother channel to the students to make their voices heard to the people that matter. Having held important positions in the Student Government in high school, I recognize the responsibilities that come with such a position and I believe that I would be able to perform the duties required of me.

What are your goals to accomplish during this term on SGA?

While on the SGA, one of my top priorities would be to create a healthy, convenient and smooth environment to ensure that students can pursue excellence in academics.
