Why I joined SGA: “When I first came to MassBay, I didn’t want to be here. I was supposed to go to a large traditional 4 year school, and it all felt stolen from me when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2017, the weekend after I’d graduated high school. I felt left behind and frustrated. The people at MassBay, however, were able to change my perception, and it became like a second family for me. They helped me to find the resources and opportunities that I needed in order to thrive. I aim to be that person for someone, and I felt that SGA was a great way to stay informed, impactful and to be able to be influential in some way.”

Why I joined SGA: “I want to represent MassBay students because I have faced many personal and financial issues in the past. For a long time, I felt like I would never be able to finish my degree or succeed in school. I had to take more than a year off to get financially stable and find stable housing. Thankfully when I came back to school, I was able to find resources and get engaged so that I could feel like my life was all encompassed on campus. The dramatic shift of my experience from my first try at my degree and my second try showed me that being engaged, utilizing my resources, and reaching out for help can make such a huge difference. Now that I am starting to feel successful and empowered, I desperately want to help other students feel the same way I feel now. I want to help students feel supported and make sure NO student is left behind.”
