I believe that I would be a good candidate in the 2012-2013 Student Government Election. To start off, I am attending Parkland College as a Parkland Pathways student. This means I attend most of my classes here, excluding one class at the U of I. Once I graduate Parkland with a certain GPA, then I will have guaranteed admission to the U of I. My major is Animal Sciences, and I hope to become a Veterinarian who works with animals who have been victims of animal cruelty or neglect. My goal would be to rehabilitate them and eventually find good homes for them.
Furthermore, since Parkland is a two-year college, I feel like I would be a great candidate to vote for because I belong to both colleges. I think I can bring something that will last a long time, in terms of community involvement and making students experience at Parkland even better than it already is sure to be. In high school, I participated in Student Council and have experience pulling together organized events. Also, for the past several months I have been working as a Veterinary Ward Assistant in a pet clinic. My job was to walk the animals and give them their mediations in the morning and evening. To medicate the animals requires a lot of responsibility. Also, I volunteer at UIUC events, therefore I hope to bring a little of what they have over here. I don’t believe in making promises I can’t keep or saying things that are not true. I think I’m pretty friendly when I first meet somebody, and I’m even better once you get to know me.
So I hope I can count on your vote for senator, and prove that you made a good choice!
