As President of the Student Government Association I will continue with our motto: “We are the voice of the students.” This past year as Vice President I helped strengthen the relationship between the SGA and the Executive Board, established discounts at local eateries and assisted the Office of Student Financial Services to work on way of communicating with students regarding financing their education and future. My goals for the next year as president is to raise the voice of the students, continue with discounts and strengthen relationships with the different departments at the College. I will work closely with my E-Board and Senate to make sure our goals reflect what the everyday student at LIM College wants. You can rest assured that I will represent your interests and advocate on your behalf.

Serving as an active member of the Student Government Association over the past academic year as well as belonging to other organizations in the LIM College community, I feel that I have gained the knowledge and understanding to serve as Vice President. LIM College is a great institution and I want to be a part of an organization that is working to make it even better. Since I first became a member of the LIM College Community in August of 2009, I have enjoyed every single day. I believe in LIM College and what it stands for.
As Vice President I will make the SGA more involved with the student body. I think it is important to address the needs and requests of LIM College students. My goal is to make students more involved in the clubs and organizations that have been established here.
I feel that I am highly qualified for this job; I have held several leadership positions over the past few years within LIM College, as well as outside of a school. I am very easy to talk to and am open to any suggestions students have. My personality and dedication will help me succeed if I am elected Vice President.
