What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
As servant leader, I am committed to establishing programs and services that uplift the ambition of those in need in the community. As such, my most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen is the successful launch and realization of my campaign platform, SUGAR. The acronym SUGAR stands for Support, Unity, Giving Back, Action and Redefinition. Through this effort, my Student Government Association colleagues and I organized a community drive that provided needed clothing, blankets, books, and toys for those in the College’s surrounding communities that are less fortunate. The recipients expressed sincere joy and appreciation from knowing that college students genuinely care about their well-being.
