I was a member of my High school’s student government and have held offices in other student organization, these have provided me with experiences in leadership, community service, teamwork and collaboration. With these experiences can be helpful in the role as a senator because the job of a senator is to better the experiences of the students here at UMBC. As a senator, I will need to work with other student organizations in order to improve the experiences of students within those organizations or that of the entire UMBC community. Community service is also very important because that is the foundation of this position. It is my job to listen and respond to the concerns of the student body and try to develop solutions for these cases. As well as being able to settle disputes between student organizations.
