People are taught to “forgive and forget” in order to be happy, afterall living with a grudge can being a serious damper in ones life.
For me, the Student Government Association is not just a student organization. I believe that it is a place for enthusiastic students to share their thoughts and give input on the major aspects of USD. While our school is already amazing, there are still things that can improve. Because of my motivation and desire to make USD the best, I want to serve on SGA. SGA would provide me with the tools to help express not only my views, but also my peers as well.
As a resident assistant, I upheld and am continuing to uphold University Housing’s mission of ensuring affordable, comfortable, secure housing on campus while promoting the academic success and personal growth of the residents. From crisis management to programming for the community, my responsibilities varied to be an enforcer of the policies but also to be a friend to all. I built quality relationships with each of my residents to establish an authentic community among the diverse population. Whether it was simply helping
Forgiveness is very important throughout life. If people don't forgive, they are going to be stuck in the past always remembering about the mistake that person did. Forgiving someone can make yourself feel better because you know you forgave that person and there's no negativity between you and that person.
From my years of leading my school as a member of Student Government Association (SGA), I have been involved in tackling issues related
We had field day and other activities to bond as a dorm. Field day was where dorms compete against dorms. In our dorm, we came up of several cheers and dances, we designed our own team clothes and we helped each other get ready. This was one of the most memorable day for me, as we all worked as a team and cheered for each other. There were races like the three legged race, sack jump, spin race and much more. I was also able to gain more exposure and establish friendships with people from around the world. These ranges from California to Florida London to Germany, Indonesia to Dubai. These are some of my other
Since, arriving at Rowan University I became at-home with Rowan’s diversity and efforts to make an impact on not only its students, but the local residents living in Glassboro too. Early in the Fall semester, I tried-out for the school’s Rugby and Ultimate Frisbee athletic teams, and ran for the Student Government position of Freshmen class Senator. I was trying to find my niche at Rowan and I found it when I joined the Pre-Med, Medlife and Pre-health society clubs. In addition, I ran for another student government position, Senator At-Large. I was elected into student government on November 7th and since then, I have felt like an active member in Rowan’s community. I first learned that Residential Learning and University Housing was looking for students to fill new Residential Assistants positions in a Senate meeting. Additionally, I’m very keen in becoming a Residential Assistant.
In my senior year of high school, I became the student body Vice President and discovered what it means to be an influential leader on campus. This experience exposed me to develop an array of qualities that can be utilized in the role of being resident assistants (RA). I have gained insightful knowledge of the intricate details necessary to be a productive leader who guides in an encouraging and supportive way. A gift that I posses is my ability to organize creative and innovative ways to build camaraderie among the people I serve. This is crucial and beneficial because it ensures for a safe and welcoming environment where everyone feels confident to seek assistance when needed. As a representative of this university and myself, I bring a dedicated intensity about infusing change by vocalizing the wants, needs, and concerns of the students to make my school resilience to an environment conducive to learning.
I became a member of my school`s SGA during my freshman year in an effort to become more active in school life. The other members and I have done many activities to improve our school and encourage school spirit. We also did many fundraising activities for our school.
First and foremost, thank you for being here in support of the student government association. I want to thank our amazing dean Edina for encouraging me to run for vice president of SGA. Many people have asked me why I am running for vice president. Would you ask a fifth grader if he is going to go to the 6th grade? No right because they have to keep going to the next level. Ever since I came to the University of Bridgeport, I constantly looked for ways to become more involved and to keep having an impact in the university. Every year, here at the University of Bridgeport I am involved in something new. Whether it's being an OL, President of a Club or even starting a chapter/club which is known as the food recovery network, with the help of my peers. The food recovery network have recovered more than 300 pounds of food that would otherwise have been thrown out.
For me, friendship is a very important principle. Therefore, I am willing to forget the reason I was mad and ask and accept forgiveness. This is not always an easy thing to do, but I realize that the more I grow up, the more following my own principles becomes important. Thinking about what the other person means to me, if they're someone I want to keep in my life, asking myself whether staying angry or forgiving them is worth it or not, are principles that help me
I believe one of the key components of a healthy residence hall would be respect for one another. I have found that there will always be people in your hall that don't get along all the time and have different opinions and beliefs. To create a safe and healthy environment it's important that there is a mutual respect among everyone. With that mutual respect brings another key component which is trust. Living in a hall closely with several other people your life is put on display for others to see and you have to be able to trust others with your personal information and with personal belongings. Without this trust it is hard to feel safe in the place you are living in which can cause emotional and relational problems. Another important key
Living in the college dorms will allow students many beneficial social interactions that they would otherwise not have. College dorms are usually divided into floors. Each floor will have a Resident Assistant that reports to a Resident Director. The Resident Assistant will organize events for the floor so that the students living together can get to know each other. This is a great opportunity for the students to meet and find others that have similar interests or majors. Throughout the semester there will be floor meetings and activities that will help the students meet new people and make more friends. Generally students will have at least one roommate. This can be someone you know or it could be randomly assigned. This is a great opportunity to make a good friend when you first move to college.
