“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams
Just about a month ago, I woke up to a beautiful Friday morning, but it wasn’t just any Friday morning. It was the day of moving in here at Becker, and I knew that I was about to embark on an adventure that would change my life forever. I knew that I had chosen the right school based on my goal to become a successful Game Designer, but that wasn’t the only intention that I had on my mind as I finally left my home with my proud family. As a child, I was quite the shy one, but a shy child whom looked up to leaders. These people ranged from police sergeants to doctors, and in my eyes, it was that kind of person that I wanted to become. I used to be fascinated by action movies with innovative plots that usually rotate around the idea of true leadership. I have to say that a huge inspiration of mine was Star Wars, and the idea behind Luke Skywalker and his legacy of rising up to face down the Empire as the spearhead of the Rebellion. I then began to grow up wanting to become a leader, just like Luke, even though I had no idea where to start. As the years passed, I began to grasp the definition of being a Good Samaritan by allowing myself to be there for those who needed my help. I then discovered my love for helping others as well as brightening the mood for others. Towards the end of my senior year in high school, I finally put two and two together, and I was strengthened with confidence in myself, and I now have made it one of my sole purposes to help bring motivation to others, just as I did for myself, through the power of leadership. As a class, we all possess our individual goals, and it would be a pleasure of mine to guide you into finding your inner strength and confidence. In reality, I am just a student, a fellow classmate just like the rest of you, with the intention to help others; and as your freshman class president for the class of 2017, I shall make an oath to serve one purpose and one purpose only: to improve our journey as a class through Becker College, and to help guide you all to greatness.
My name is Lynda Mockler and I am running for Freshman VP. First off I would like to say that I love Becker. I have traveled all the way from Florida to get here and I am not disappointed. This place has become my home and I find myself loving it more and more in the short time that I have been here. I have never felt that I would be one to run in an election but now that I have decided to do it, I know this was meant for me. I would be an excellent pick for freshman class VP, because I enjoy solving problems, I am a people person, and most of all I love this school. I am a good listener and I am very willing to do whatever it takes to help you. Whatever arises I am good at staying calm and solving the problem. I strive to make people happy. Like most people I can probably talk about myself all day, but the truth is that running for office is not about me. It is about us. I want to hear what you have to say and that is the main reason I am running. I am running for the freshmen. I hope that you choose me to represent our class of 2017. Let’s make it a memorable college experience! Vote for me for freshman class VP.
Hello! My name is Jon Yelle and I am a game design major here at Becker College. I am running for Freshman Class Vice President because I know that I can best represent your interests to the SGA and Becker. As students at Becker College we are all concerned about the variety of issues that tend to crop up during our busy schedules. But it is often the case that we are not able to deal with these problems as they come up. That's where I come in. My schedule is not very hectic at the moment, so I have the time to deal with these issues as they arise. When the second semester comes around, I will certainly ensure that this remains the case. I promise to work diligently and make sure that your voice is heard.
As Vice President, you will easily be able to approach me and talk about whatever it is you want me to handle, and I will do so as best that I can. Not only will I listen to your ideas, but I will also be proactive and on the lookout for anything that could be of use to us here at Becker. Thank you for considering me to be your Freshman Class Vice President. If you would like to talk to me in person, I am usually in the Hawk's Nest on the Worcester campus at 12:00pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and at 10:45am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Feel free to drop by and we'll have a chat! Even if you just see me around campus, don't hesitate to say hello. I look forward to getting to know all of you.
I am a resident assistant, tour guide and Blue Crew member at the school. I have the abilities a leader needs to really make a change. I will work hard to make sure that the voices of all members of the school will be heard and do what I can to make everyone's time here at Becker as memorable as possible.
My name is Sarah Wise and I am a senior Interior Design major here at Becker College. My hometown is Galloway, New Jersey. I transferred to Becker two years ago from Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing, New Jersey.
In January of my first year at Becker, I began working in the Admissions Office as a Tour Guide. In my second year, I became an RA and continued working in the Admissions Office. I was also selected to be a Presidential Ambassador. I am currently the RA for Cedar Hall and continue my work as a Tour Guide and a Presidential Ambassador.
Becker College provides a wonderful community for its students. I believe, however, that it is important to take advantage of all the college has to offer. In addition to the excellent academic opportunities provided, we have access to a wide range of activities. It is important for each student to get involved in the Becker community to get the most out of the college experience.
I have taken advantage of many of the things that Becker College offers to its students. Being a Becker student continues to be a great experience for me. I have learned a great deal about the college as a whole due to my various ‘jobs’ on campus. As I am now in my senior year, I would like the opportunity to be a part of SGA and help to shape the future of Becker College.
My name is Gabi Hulsey, and class of 2017 freshman and I am majoring in business marketing. Even though I’m not in an animal science major, I am an animal lover! The picture of me was taken with my favorite dog at the shelter where I work; his name is Jack. I have worked at that animal shelter for two years, taking care of dogs and helping customers. I am responsible and enthusiastic. I’m very organized and have experience in student leadership and Treasurer positions. In tenth and eleventh grade, I was the Vice President and Treasurer of my school’s engineering club. I was responsible for allocating money to different projects, helping with fundraising and keeping track of the budget.
I am running for Student Government Treasurer because I want to have a positive impact on the student body. I have heard tons of great ideas from my fellow students, and I want to help make those ideas a reality. As treasurer, I want to help clubs achieve their goals. I would do this by providing fundraising ideas as well as making the budget allocation process as smooth and transparent as it can be!
