Running for Associate Vice President of Internal Affairs
“Students should vote for me because I am familiar with this position's roles and duties, as I currently hold the title of Vice President for Internal Affairs for the 2022-2023 academic school year. While in this role, I have learned so much about SGA, the importance it has at TWU, and how vital the VP for Internal Affairs position is. My attention to detail and attentiveness have served me well, and they will continue to help me as SGA expands and grows. Next year, I want to elevate and make the election process for SGA more well-known so that our SGA can be as competitive and comparable to more prominent schools in the state. I believe that this will help more students become aware of the resource that SGA is for them. I hope you will consider me as the Vice President for Internal Affairs for 2023-2024!”

Major:
Nursing

Running for Senate Pro-Tempore
“Being in SGA for the past semester and a half has been an experience that I would not change for anything. SGA teaches you more than leadership skills, it teaches you to be compassionate towards people, to listen, and act on the wellbeing of others. I want to keep growing to be someone that people can rely on for their concerns, suggestions, and questions, mainly because I want to focus on helping TWU to also keep growing as a community that is willing to help each other out. I want students to know that there will be people who will be there to listen and to help them, and I want to be part of that team that does its best to make that happen and much more. It would be an honor to get elected as Senate Pro Tempore and work with amazing people that also want to bring more to the table, helping TWU become a safe place to speak up and be heard, offering the necessary resources to help other succeed as a united community.”

Moreover, I am a person of service striving for the development of a more diverse, understanding, and cohesive environment and community. Furthermore, I will be able to bring new, creative, innovative ideas that will allow for opportunities for growth in the community to the table for access to my peers. I have learned to love being a person of service, and helping others to build connections within the community that allows them to embrace their self-expression and celebrate what makes us all individuals. This position will also provide me the platform to help initiate the change, and opportunities I want to see on campus. Overall within this position of serving my peers, I would be able to grow immensely not only with my leadership skills but as a person and human being in a variety of ways, specifically being able to build community with people who come from all different walks of life.”
