What does student leader mean to you?
A student leader is someone who represents the university in a respectful manner. Someone who inspires people, someone who serves the student body , a person who listens and isn’t afraid to offer a helping hand when needed.

I am someone who learns from experience. Being a student leader has only allowed me to acquire leadership skills that I will continue to use and build on in the future.
