Why have you decided to run for this position?

“I decided to run for the student-at-large position because I love being involved. When I first got here, I came out of highschool as a very involved student. In first-year, I dropped the ball: I was involved, but not as much as I would have liked. Brock gave me a lot of opportunities and has provided me with a lot of confidence in myself. While I belong to Math and Sciences, I’ve taken courses in the Humanities, Applied Health Sciences, and Social Sciences — I’ve always been passionate about everything. I am always interested in the big picture. I’ve always been connected to a diverse, and well-rounded body of interests, I didn’t want to restrain myself to one specific faculty.”

Why do you believe you should be elected as a student-at-large?

“I believe I should be elected because I have an intrinsic motivation to be involved across the entirety of the student body. I’m a helping hand, and I try to involve myself in the entire school beyond just specific clubs or activities.”

How do you plan to represent the full diversity of students and programs on campus?

“I plan on being very available for the student body. I will always be available on social media or in the hallways for a quick chat. I want to be an available face, and a friendly face on campus. I will continue volunteering and being involved in clubs, which will help connect me to those people that I represent. I will always try to represent the full diversity of our school as well as I can.”

To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?

“BUSAC is a student council that acts as a voice for all students through its elected representatives. The council passes laws, proposes referendums, it’s the student governance mechanism of the university.”
