Statement of Candidacy
Hey guys! My name is Elizabeth Black and I am from the awesome city of Chicago. I am super excited to be running for freshmen representative for the Unified Student Government Association and eager to let you know why you should elect me for the position. As an active participant in student government as well as a leader in many clubs, sports, and community service projects throughout high school, I have always been an effective proponent of leadership, involvement, service, and school pride. These four aspects remain extremely crucial to me and I plan to incorporate and expand upon them in everything I do as a freshmen representative.
First and foremost, I promise to serve both you and the rest of the student body as a leader and a friend who can help our class and school achieve everything that we want to. In doing so, my biggest priority is to address your needs and be an accessible and responsive advocate in bridging the gap between the administration, the students, and the community. Being a Chicago native, I am familiar with the area and have connections with organizations and groups that I know can give us the utmost opportunities in service-oriented community projects and fun social activities! Furthermore, I want to work to unite clubs and sports together to make sure that every student feels like his or her interests are important and supported by the entire student body. As the biggest freshmen class in Loyola history, we have the power to continue making history with amazing accomplishments that I have no doubt we will achieve!
What sets me apart from the other candidates is my direct focus on putting the interests of others first. As cliché as it may sound, I am not running just so I can put this on my resume, or so I can say that I’m a part of student government. I’m running because I truly care about making everyone’s college experience as awesome as it can be. I believe I am an open minded, non-judgmental and hardworking person who is willing to listen to everything you have to say throughout the school year and beyond. Therefore, I am super excited to be a part of this organization and I’d be honored to be elected as one of your 2013-2014 freshmen representatives!
