As President of the Graduate Student Association, I plan to advocate on behalf of the graduate student body on current issues facing Buffalo State. I have been affiliated with the college since 2008. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration while working as a Student Assistant and have since become the Manager of the Parking Services office. I am currently a graduate student pursuing my Master of Public Administration. If elected President, I will work to represent the graduate student body to build upon the awareness of the GSA. I benefit from interacting with several faculty and staff on campus due to my position which I believe will assist in streamlining our goals. I will strive to increase graduate student engagement in campus organizations and activities. In the spirit of shared governance, I will try to increase graduate student participation in committees. I will seek to enhance the relationship with the Dean of the Graduate School and the college administration. Since I work on campus, I will be available every weekday to discuss how we can improve the graduate experience while attending Buffalo State.
I believe I am the best candidate for the Vice President position because I currently have a strong background in working administrative duties. I currently work for the University Police Student Assistant program where I serve as a student coordinator. My job responsibilities include making administrative decisions with the University Police Student Assistant Program to assist in ensuring that the campus is safe throughout the day, the hiring process of new employees, responding to daily email requests for special event coverage. I have been employed with the University Police Student Assistant program for 5 consecutive years, and still working. I also worked with the Education Opportunity program previously for five consecutive years (Summer 2013- Summer 2017) where I was able to serve as a Resident assistant, and a Resident director. I was given the opportunity to make administrative decision in cooperation with other peers to achieve the same goal throughout the program which is to assist incoming high school student with the transition from high school to college mentalities. I have attended the last GSA meeting. I have built a strong interest in serving the GSA Eboard.
I am the best candidate for this position because I know how to balance money. I will make sure that all of the funds are used appropriately for the Graduate Students at Buffalo State College. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and that background has really helped me due to the accounting and finance classes that I have taken. I hope to be considered for this position because I love numbers and I also would like to be more involved within the Graduate community. This position will offer me an opportunity to step up and use my abilities to my greatest power.
I am interested in the role as Vice President for Administration because I believe that my skills and knowledge gained from my past experiences has shape me into being the perfect candidate. During my undergraduate academic career at SUNY Oswego, I served 2 years and one semester as an At-large senator. Being apart of this organization and taking on this role allowed me to see and understand the importance of the students voice. This role exposed me to several clubs and organizations that I later got involved in and became an executive board member. Some of past positions that can help be successful in this role is being the Administrative Assistant to Campus Life. In this role I managed all documents and organized weekly and one-on-one meetings with student leaders. I also managed the email and social media accounts. I was also the President of the Black Student Union. As the President of this organization I supervised 8 executive board members and ensured that each role was successfully executed. As the VP of Administration, I can bring experiences to the table that other students may be able to identify with. I know that I can be a great representation for the student body.
