Please provide in one to two paragraphs an issue that you think should be changed or improved on cam
An issue that is not commonly talked about is mental well-being. There are a lot of commuters going to UNO, therefore most people lack any social connections on campus, unless they are part of a club. This lack of friendships can lead to loneliness. Furthermore, most people do not feel the same motivation to go to school if it is meaningless to them. Consequently, the graduation rates from UNO are shockingly low. My proposal is to have a mandatory week of volunteer activities. This week can happen at the beginning of every school year. Students can be separated into groups depending on their majors and credit hours. Throughout this week students will have to stay in the same group. These groups will be small ones to make everyone feel included, and help the community. Hopefully, with an activity like this, students will connect with other people. This way students can have people on campus to call their friends. Friendships will increase mental health and possibly improve UNO's graduation rate.
Please describe in one to two paragraphs what makes you qualified to sit on Student Government.
I am a very hard worker. Being part of a sorority has really taught me how to manage my time and make the most out of my days. I love standing up for what is right, whether that makes me part of the crowd or an outlier. I am also very passionate about learning what the different views/needs of people are. I am a personable person. I know how to talk to people, either in a casual or formal way. I know how to make people feel like they can trust me, because I genuinely care about everyone. My dedication and persistence to be the best at what I do is something that stands out. Overall, I love UNO, and would be nothing but happy to help improve its everyday quality for students and visitors.
