  • Biography: Let’s Make a Change

         “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”
         -Robin Williams

         I am a firm believer that everyone is capable of great ideas, enacting positive change, and accomplishing their ambitions; it’s all about finding the right ways or mediums to express yourself, the right people to motivate and encourage you, and finding what inspires you to be the best you possibly can be. I want to do my best to make positive change in my community and for the betterment of those around me, and hope to have the chance to motivate and inspire others to do the same. I believe ASOSU is a great medium for change here at Oregon State University, and I hope that I can be a part of it to work towards improving the way and quality of life for students here at OSU.

         I served on my high school’s student government committee for two years and learned how to work on projects with others of various opinions, sometimes differing to mine, with respect and consideration. We benefit greatly as a society when we incorporate the thoughts and ideas of those around us into our way of life and will often see great insight and understanding from viewpoints created by various experiences and walks of life. I want us to find ways to help get our student body involved in the issues pressing our university and our community, and hope to increase student involvement in volunteer and service opportunities through Oregon State University.

It may seem like one person can’t make a difference, but every change has to begin somewhere, no matter how small. I believe it can begin with us, so let’s make a change.
