When making my decision on where to attend pharmacy school, there was no question. SIUE was the obvious choice. SIUE has guided my personal and professional growth, and I would embrace the opportunity to give back to the campus and the community as Homecoming Queen. I represent a wide variety of students and would serve as a liaison and resource to bridge the gap between all students…past, present, and future.
One word to describe why I would best represent the University as Homecoming Queen would be “connected”. I am a member of Alpha Sigma Tau, a Meridian Scholar, Greek Council Chief Justice, a Springboard Leader, and Student Body President. As president, I have already had experience representing the student body to faculty and staff. I live by the values of the University: Wisdom, Integrity, Citizenship, Inclusion and Excellence. I am from the area, and I have seen SIUE grow in to the amazing university that it is. Words can’t express how proud I am to be a Cougar!
Being SIUE’s Homecoming Queen would be honorable. Representing SIUE as Homecoming Queen would not mean that I would have to “pretend” to be a well put together individual or someone “the body” wants, but it would mean being myself and further exemplifying the values that I stand for. It would help me grow as the woman who loves to serve her community and be a role model for those who enjoy joining as one to give a helping hand. Also, being a petite woman I would love to be the example that “big things do come in small packages”.
I believe that I would be the best representative for SIUE Homecoming Queen because I am proud to be an SIUE Cougar! Through my many different leadership positions in Greek Life, University Housing, and Campus Recreation, I have seen what a diverse and truly amazing community this University is. I am very happy to call it my home away from home. SIUE has offered me with countless opportunities for both professional and personal growth. My dedication and love for SIUE is what sets me apart and qualifies me to be the 2013 Homecoming Queen.
I would best represent SIUE as the 2013 Homecoming Queen because I am extremely involved within the Housing Community as a 3rd year Resident Assistant and have fostered wonderful relationships throughout campus. Previously the Associate Direct of Philanthropy for the National Residents Hall Honorary I put on numerous events to give back to the community. I just recently was added to the Up Til’ Dawn Executive Board to benefit St. Jude hospital. I would not be the woman I am today without SIUe’s support, academic standards and the push to be and stay involved. I am proud to say that I will be graduating from SIUE.
