Please provide in one to two paragraphs an issue that you think should be changed or improved on cam
I'd like to implement more mentorship programs on campus. Many UNO students work part time or full time jobs while also attending school. They do not have the opportunity to apply for internships, especially when many internships are unpaid. Implementing a mentorship program within each college would enable students to make the career connections they might otherwise miss out on due to their work and school schedule, especially because UNO is known for having a high rate of non traditional students. I believe a mentorship program would help prepare these students for their career field in ways they would otherwise miss out on.
Please describe in one to two paragraphs what makes you qualified to sit on Student Government.
I am qualified to sit on Student Government because I am involved in a variety of activities on campus, which means that I have spoken with many students and feel like I could represent their voices well. I have leadership experience through my job as the advertising manager for The Gateway, as well as my position as assistant director of finance with the Latinos in STEM group. Being involved on campus has allowed me to experience what UNO has to offer.
