"No need to sweat, Vote for someone you won’t regret, vote Garvin for Junior Representative!"
I believe that a true leader empowers others to become leaders as well. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to run as a Class Representative again this year. The past two years I was honored to serve as a Class Representative within SGA and was able to accomplish much more than I had ever thought was possible. Some of the things I was able to accomplish was, allowing UD Four Paws to have more dogs on campus than ever before, and also alleviating some major boundaries they were facing with dining and residential halls. I also was able to pass legislation that I really believed in, some of which included, support of climate change, the LGBQT+ community, and anti-gun violence. This year though, I have a new list of things that I would love to improve and implement on campus, regardless of the hardships everyone is currently facing.
Some of the things that I would love to accomplish if I were lucky enough to be selected into this position, is to make sure all of our classmates and friends are as safe as possible on campus. I plan to do this by working closely with Chief Kidd and the SGA safety committee to help introduce more ways students can feel safe 24/7. Another goal of mine for this year is to place some picnic tables on the patio of VWK. I believe this would be very beneficial to students in giving them more places to study, and also providing them with a spot where they can enjoy being outside. Another plan that I would like to do, is bring more awareness to all of the things that are resources to us on campus. I believe that many students still may be unaware of some of the things that are at their disposal, or realize how helpful the resources can be. I plan to accomplish this by teaming up with some of the offices on campus and sharing to my constituents what they might not know about them.
I am confident that I would be able to be a great voice and representative for our class. Last year I was very honored to be a recipient of the Boldness in Leadership Award at the University of Dayton. I have also been fortunate enough to hold many leadership roles in the past that helps make me a perfect candidate for this position. I am very open-minded and appreciate any ideas my constituents have, my voice is your voice. Thank you for considering me for this position, stay healthy, and see the best in everything! GO FLYERS!
