I was Vice President of my High Schools Drumming Ensemble

Position Running For: President of RHC

Why are you running for this position?

I’ve been a member of RHC for two years now, we’re a relatively small group but we work well together. I’m running for this position because I would love to see the group grow and I believe I have what it take to see that through.

What do you hope to accomplish at this position during the 2015/2016 year?

Number one on the list would be more members. Like I said before we are a small group. Our size makes it difficult to hear the concerns of the Resident community so I’d love to change that.

If you could improve anything on campus, regardless of what it would take, what would it be and why?

Diversity, Naz isn’t a very diverse campus. I’d love to see a campus with equal gender, race, sexual orientation and religion population. I appreciate the current efforts and I realize it is going to take a while to change.

If we could have the fun of college without the actual work that would be lovely. My favourite thing is meeting new people from different places and seeing how we come together despite our differences

Why do you think it’s important for students to participate in the UA or other campus activities?

It gives us an opportunity to meet other people, to discover what we like and dislike. We also learn how to work with others.

Are there any new initiatives or programs you are looking to introduce?

This past year we thought about the concept of having hall representatives who would bring forward the concerns of each of the halls. I’d like to see this through.

If you had to be a kitchen utensil, which would you be and why?

A spoon! They’re so diverse. They can cut and you can eat with them. Spoons are very talented.

Janelle Monae :3. Love Love Love Love her!

Ravenclaw according to Pottermore ☺
