Name: Melissa Opie
Major: Criminal Justice – Criminalistics
Class standing: Freshman
SGU position you applied for: Vice President of Communication Management
What experience do you have which makes you qualified for the position you’re running for and a better choice than your opponent(s)?
I am a very dedicated person and give 100% to everything that I do. I am only a 2nd-semester freshman, and I am already super involved on campus, and I already hold a leadership position as Secretary for Alpha Phi Omega. With my job as Secretary, I feel I would adjust to the job of Vice President of Communications very easily since I know how to use all forms of social media and can do everything a VPCM does.
Why do you want this position and what/who inspired or motivated you to run?
I want to run for this position to gain more leadership skills and I am determined to grow as a leader by wanting to take on this leadership role for SGU.
What do you hope to accomplish and how do you plan to accomplish these goals in your position?
I want to promote SGU events on social media and I also want to increase school spirit with getting more students involved on campus. Being involved on campus has done so much for me, and I want to see that happen to other students by being a part of SGU events.
What would your first action in office be, if you are elected?
-I would promote any and every SGU event on social media, so that way we will get more students involved and in return build school spirit.
