My name is Emily Cross, and I am writing to apply for the position of Sophomore Representative. As part of my platform, I am an advocate for Social Justice. I hope to form greater awareness of equality among individuals. I believe every person deserves dignity despite their race, gender, and background. Furthermore, every student on campus should feel that they have power—whether that power be in their actions, body language, voice, etc. My candidacy will benefit San Francisco State University because I truly enjoy and like to devote my time to the committee or board I am on. Also, I like to offer my thoughts and suggestions to better our student body as a whole. In order to assume the position of sophomore representative, I must understand the needs of each individual in my class. As I said previously, my main goal, if elected, is to better the student body on the individual level. Although this may seem small, if a student feels confident and powerful expressing themselves as an individual, it will have a positive effect overall. In order to understand an individual’s need, I must approach their thoughts and ideas with an open mind. Through volunteering and leadership roles over the years, I’ve learned skills such as, event planning, communication amongst a group, public speaking, fundraising, special education, and note-taking, making me an effective listener and communicator.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to apply.
Sincerely and respectively,
