Candidates for President
I am running for President because it is a rare opportunity to help my community, and gain invaluable career experience. The time I have spent I the College Council committee, being the interim Minister of Finance, founding and leading the Engineering and Technology Society, have all given me keen insight of many school systems. Over the past three years I have worked at a Boys and Girls Club, which has conditioned me for high stress environments and bearing responsibilities. Communicating with 5-7 year olds on a daily basis has also greatly improved my language skills. It may honestly be from my time with the Boys and Girls Club that compels me to help others, and appreciate human potential. It is this potential, within us all, that a President must see, and be able to utilize. And it is this sight and utility that is perhaps most important for the success of any leader. As President, my primary goals are to create an environment that nurtures community and creativity, in a manner that is both equitable and sustainable. Strengthening student and teacher collaboration will also be at the forefront of my priorities as President. If you see me around campus, I welcome any questions you may have.
As Student Body President, I will improve the quality of campus life and enhance student involvement in college governance. I came to Shoreline in Winter 2012 to pursue degrees in Psychology and Higher Education. I have been passionately involved with campus clubs and activities. I serve as an International Peer Mentor, a WP&DSS club officer, and a student representative on the Strategic Plan/Budget Committee.
I work with students from diverse backgrounds in improving the campus life at SCC. I have witnessed and contributed to the intellectual and emotional growth of other students participating in campus activities. Thus, I began to appreciate the campus life at SCC.
If I am elected, I will motivate the college to establish an orientation program that educates all students about support services and involvement opportunity. I will ensure that student clubs have adequate support to build their communities. Lastly, I believe in empowering students and having students as the center at the college’s decision-makings. I will work with other officers to obtain student feedbacks to make informed decisions, and advocate that the college improves services based on student feedbacks. We can work together to improve the quality of education that we deserve.
Candidates for Minister of Communications
Greetings! I’m Alicia Roxanne Kosasih and I’m running for Minister of Communication at Shoreline Community College. For me, being a college student is more than achieving good result and getting to a good university. I want to become an inspiration to other people. I believe that if I become the next Minister of Communication I can inspire many people through my dedication for my job, my time management skills and my interpersonal skills. I want to inspire people to dedicate themselves in every little task that they do, because I believe that small things are the one that makes great things count. I also want to inspire people with my time management skills and make them realize that college is not only the time to have fun with your friends, but also the place for you to learn. I also want to learn more and gain more experience as a minister of communication. Last but not least, I want to show people that as a human being we should treat each other equality; not based on specific gender, race, social class or sexuality. Everyone in Shoreline Community College is equal. I believe with the leadership qualities that I posses and my experiences I’m the right person as the next Minister of Communication.
Hello students and faculty of Shoreline Community College! My name is Antja Flowers and I am a candidate for this year’s Student Body Association to be a student advocate. I feel I would be the best person for this position because I have had experience in representing others. I use to swim competitively for the national Palau swimming team, and I served as a Swimmers Representative to the swim team board members. I was responsible for taking all concerns and ideas that the rest of the team had and make sure they were fairly addressed. As a student advocate, I will make sure that all needs and concerns regardless of how big or small are met and solved. You need a person who is there to hear out anything you have to say; someone that you will feel comfortable talking to and not feel like you’re wasting your time. When you come to me with a problem, I will treat it as if it were my own. Moving here from a tiny island in the Pacific called Palau, I came to school not knowing what to expect. Not knowing where things were or who to ask about simple things like WiFi was frustrating. As a student advocate it will be my goal to help eliminate any confusion or frustration students may feel.
Hello! My name is Cindy Apriyanti Tanartah. I acquire a broad set of knowledge through joining school activities and events such as involving in yearbook committee treasury, being a leader in journalism club, and finally as an event coordinator in an art performance held. Through joining such events I was exposed to people from many different ethnic backgrounds and personalities, which develop my communication skills and how to interact with others. By joining this Student Body Association, it will become a new experience for me, which is very challenging and help me to develop myself better. I wish that I could step out from my comfort zone by being able to deliver my voices that will contribute to others.
As a Minister of Communication in Shoreline Community College, I hope that I would be able to learn many new experiences that would not only benefit me, but also benefit the school as a whole. I also really uphold the transparency of our school communication system, so that more students can participate more actively. By maintaining the school’s good qualities and improving things that are need to be changed, I hope students voice would easily be heard to the parliament and brings out the best of SCC.
Hi fellow Shoreline students! My name is Darren Gumulya. I’m a student from Indonesia and currently majoring at Industrial Engineering. I’m running for the next Minister of Communication for this summer and I’m really honored to be here and chosen for the student election next spring.
Being a Minister of Communication means a lot to me, because it is not just the matter of filling your resume but it have more values than that. You can experience working in a group of international people from many countries where there will be so many diversity. You can make friends with many people from another country that work together with you. It can build your character and attitude for your future in real life. Like building a house, this experience is will be the foundation to make it strong and impenetrable. So, this once in a lifetime experience will mean a lot to fill my diary on my life journey as an international student in this college.
I myself are an easy-going person who can easily mingle and adapt in a new environment, I’m also a flexible person and low-tempered, maybe to low that it has been over many years since I got angry with someone.
If I’m chosen to be the Minister of Communication, I promise to give my 110 percent to serve all of you with all of my heart, thank you and don’t forget to vote for me.
I would love to be part of the SBA family because I feel like I can contribute a different perspective. Having been in several leadership positions in high school, it has taught me to be more organized, prioritize and it helped develop my verbal communication skills. Instead of just talking about the problems we have I would actually use my position to help the campus. I love working with others because I get along with everyone. Our school could always use improvement, so as Minister of Communications I would be trying to build a bridge between students and the government. I can stand up for student voices; I’d have the ability to work with other incredible students and make sure this upcoming year is a success. It would be extraordinary to have a chance to be part of a small community of individuals getting together to generate solutions. We could be more aware of the diversity of student life but finding a way to connect everyone together. I will ensure to take every opinion into consideration as well as keeping decisions affecting the students’ best interest, at heart.
