"I come from proud a family that has been involved with public service for as long as I can remember. I want to work for you. We need to create more events and opportunities, improve our schools, make public safety and better teaching quality, and I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate the complicated school resources, and get things done."
Understanding student needs, forging partnerships with school leaders or organizations, and carefully analyzing institutional systems are all key to advocacy. But at its core, advocating for your students is about making their stories and needs visible on a larger scale by using your own voice.
Simply listening to our students, believing in them, and providing them with a support system is the first and most important step in advocacy. But this work is by no means easy. Acting as an advocate for students can be overwhelming because properly addressing student needs involves so many stakeholders, systems, and processes — which means I will need support along the way. We will work together to make an open space for everyone.
Community organization needs and volunteer roles are changing rapidly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteer fuels purposeful connections between people to respond to the most pressing social issues in our community. Connect with us, and you'll have a friend for life. Creating more volunteer opportunities create more engagement and experience. It helps to build into ideas and challenges.
I would urge and create more volunteer opportunities virtually so that we all can learn, build and engage with each other even remotely.
Extra hand for International Students
Being landed as an immigrant, I have learned and experienced the problems and issues that create chaos for our international folks; from cultural shock to different weather and food, it's challenging and tough.
Helping to create a 24 hour Q & A platform would help students deal with everyday issues quickly. Accessing them to our centennial resources and engaging them in our Centennial society would make them stronger.
Voices need to be heard.
Providing equal opportunities for students to express their thoughts and beliefs is what I would look forward to.
Creating an open space for students to discover and experiment with their transitional thoughts and evolve would be one of my strategies while being a vice president. To fail to struggle to open to new ideas is what makes us competitive and innovative.
