Why are you running for this position? I’ve been involved with student government at Westminster since I transferred here in 2007. Over the past three years, I’ve been involved in many different levels of campus life, from event planning to campus improvements to sitting on committees with deans. I’d like to take the experiences I’ve had and use what I’ve learned from them in an Executive Board position so that I can share them with the population of student leaders on both campuses. To me, that’s what student leadership is about — sharing and learning from experiences with each other. I think that the secretary of SGA should be someone who is comfortable with communicating not only with the student body, but also the administration. Because of the relationships I have with both parties, I think I could successfully accomplish that goal, as well as contribute several positive attributes to the SGA.
