Hello Andrews University, my name is Afia Asamoah and I am running for Executive Vice President of AUSA!
In my capacity as social coordinator of the J.N. Andrews Honors Program, Treasurer of DMAC (former Music Club), Class of 2015 Secretary, Social VP of the Asante Club, Pi Sigma Alpha Secretary (Political Science Honors Society), AUSA social team member (aka “the army”), and Chapel worship leader, I have seen many of the aspects that make the Andrews University student body great.
If you give me the privilege of serving you as your Executive Vice President, here are the goals that I will work to accomplish: First, I want to make your senators be more visible and accessible to you. In doing so, AUSA will be more able to serve you and let your voice be heard. One of the ways in which we can do this is through improved usage of the senate website as a method of communication to connect with each of you.
Second, as EVP I will oversee the Senate pass a responsible budget and make it more transparent to the student body. The budget affects you, and I want the decision-making process and ultimately the finished product to be done with your input.
I want to help create an environment that allows every student to feel represented. An Andrews University that is driven by students input. An Andrews University where students can approach their representatives confidently An Andrews University where there is no wall between representatives and students—because at the end of the day, we are all Andrews University. The AUSA team is an extension of you.
This year’s AUSA leaders have done a phenomenal job of establishing connections with each other and encouraging togetherness in the student body. The importance of synergy cannot be stressed enough which is why I want to tighten the bonds they set in motion and continue to unite the voices of every Andrews University student into a chorus of enthusiasm for the future. God bless you. Thank you.
