As someone who has been both the junior and senior class vice president respectively, I have seen firsthand the potential of the presidential positions. I would like to make a greater impact upon the student body and I believe that senior class president will provide me that opportunity. I continue to enjoy being a part of YU and its student government and I believe it is time that I take a larger role in its future.

During the past two years I have had the privilege of being both the junior and senior class vice presidents. Throughout this time I have worked intimately with my student councils and the office of student life to create original and exciting programming for the student body. I believe my previous experiences with student government will be integral in my goal of creating an exciting and eventful upcoming year for the senior class.

What, if any, other leadership commitments are you taking on next year?      

Fortunately I have been granted a resident advisor position for the upcoming year. Both senior class president and RA require dedication to YU and I believe that I have the skills, experience, and enthusiasm necessary to fulfill my commitment to both positions.
