I am in the second year of my program in Higher Education Administration. Since being accepted into Buffalo State, I have fallen in love with its campus and students. I've never been to a place where there is not only diversity, but also a sense of inclusion. This past year I had the honor of being a senator in the GSA as well as the chair of the Student Welfare Committee. That committee is responsible for event planning and making sure graduate students' needs are being met. Although Buffalo State is a great institution, there are many places where improvements can be made. It is my belief that graduate students should have just as many support services and opportunities as undergraduates. As President, I will try to expand those opportunities and services. These include: more support for students with children; giving out more funding for research and making that process more efficient and effective; expanding the graduate school commons to the entire second floor of the Butler Library location; more social and networking events; and more collaboration with faculty.

I am hard-working, sympathetic, honest and trustworthy. I think I can bring a new perspective into the role of Vice President on the Executive Board with my experience I have accumulated in a local Toastmasters club named Speakeasy Club for the past four years. For one year I was Sergeant at Arms holding a symbolic role and holding up the history of the club. For another year I was Vice President of Public Relations where I advertised the club to members of the community in order to increase attendance and community involvement. Throughout my four years as a member of Toastmasters I have held the role of Toastmaster, General Evaluator, Table Topics Master, Speaker and Evaluator. I am a competent leader and competent communicator within my club and throughout my four years I have accumulated great public-speaking skills and confidence within myself to serve as Vice President on the Executive Board.

During my undergraduate career at Buffalo State College, I was the Women's Rugby President for two years and worked closely with the United Student Government. As president, I did a number of tasks to benefit and further establish the organization with USG, such as re-writing the organization's constitution, presenting our organization for re-recognition, and actively using Bengal Connect to promote the organization. I also worked closely with our Executive Board Treasurer. We collaborated together in order to request funding for travel and tournaments, to distribute the appropriate funds for use by our organization, and to propose our organization's annual budget to USG. I am confident that I will utilize my previous experiences to effectively manage and distribute the organization's funds in an appropriate manner. In addition, I believe that the fellow Executive Board members will collaborate well to discuss efficient ways to assist graduate students at Buffalo State College.
