2. What is the one trait you want people to know you for?
If people could know me for one thing I would hope that it would be for my ability to empathize. I want people to be able to approach me with any problem, and know that I will listen to them free of judgment.
3. What is your favorite quote/saying(s)?

4. What do you think can be improved at Kettering and what steps will you take to accomplish this improvement?
Over the past few years Kettering University has made some major improvements, but we are not done yet. The schools food has been improved, but it could still be better. If elected, I would like to work on getting healthier and fresher meals in the cafeteria. The food that most Kettering Students consume on a daily basis is very unhealthy. There are currently some healthy options, but the selection is quite minute. To accomplish this I will find alternative places to order the food from that will not cost the school any more than they currently spend.
5. What has been your biggest success and failure? What have you learned from them?
My biggest success has been my education, while my biggest failure has been not being involved in as much as I could be. Through my schooling I came to realize that only i can limit myself, and that a positive attitude can change your life. If i work hard enough, I know that I can accomplish anything. Through my failures I have realized that I no longer want to take the back seat in my school and community. Helping others is what life is all about, and I just want the opportunity to give back to those around me.
6. What is your motivation for wanting to represent the student body via Student Senate?
As I stated previously, I would like to be more involved in my school. I have always been very interested in politics, and I believe that I could be a great representative for my class. I am willing to put in the necessary time and efforts to make this school a better place, and I will be sure to make the opinions and needs of my peers my top priority. Student Senate is something that I am very eager to be a part of, and if given the opportunity I know I can do a great job.
