The reason why I want to be a member of Student Government is because I want to make a change in the UWB community. I was inspired by the stories I heard about ASUWB. A specific story I heard was the creation of the sports field. Some people do not think much about the field, but for me, I could not see UWB without the field. If there was no field, I would not have many friends because the field helped me connect and become friends with fellow students due to our common interest of sports. Without the field, I truly believe the school would not be as connected as it is now. The field inspires me to get involved with Student Government and be a member of a similar change. As a member of Student Government, I want to be the connection for the students to help them get their voice and ideas heard. Becoming a member of Associated Students of University of Washington will allow me to achieve my goal of being a part of a change at UWB and give me the role of connecting the students to the university.
As a student of the University of Washington Bothell, it is to my belief in our education system there is but one thing that is the golden rule to all policies, adaptation. The university itself has been gracious to our core beliefs of being open to change, and providing the best for their students. However there is more room for improvement. I wish to advocate for those who do not speak up, for the students who haven’t voiced their concerns. This is our school, therefore I wish to help be part of the change, and contribute to the system. Our student body consists of a variety of students from commuters, to students who live in housing needless to say all will benefit better communication. School should not be a chore, nor should learning be a tiresome task! Students pay the institution for knowledge however knowledge itself would be an understatement. Over here we can find students of every major with different dreams and goals in life. The networking opportunity is a wealth itself that would go to waste if students were not to take advantage of it. Therefore as a running candidate for the senator of the Associated Students of University of Washington Bothell, I would like to promote the underlining principle of fun, leaving fond memories for students to reminisce of!
