Hello, my name is Laura Flores I am a senior pursuing a Biology degree with a chemistry minor. Strong work ethic, determination, and faith, are qualities I strive for in my every day life. While working towards my biology degree here at MSU, I have actively worked to better residences lives around me.
After my first semester living at MSU, I was hired to be a resident assistant. As an RA working for Midwestern Housing, I was given the responsibility of advising and caring for twenty-four freshmen girls. This job taught me how to meet the needs of a diverse group of people through hard work. Between labs and putting on programs, I learned that the secret to success was through conviction. Later, I discovered that the RA position gave me the experience needed to help build and grow RHA. I was elected president of the resident hall association organization. As president, I expanded a newly formed organization of five students to one of the largest non-Greek organizations. My team and I worked hard to make RHA place in one of the top positions during the homecoming competition. RHA is now a self-sustaining group of students who work together to better life for all students living through MSU. With persistence and teamwork, I was able to succeed in these goals. Through RHA, I was able to be one of the two student representatives that selected the new dining contractor to serve our students.
My participation played an active role in bettering the life of students, bringing an updated to the dining service. However, I never forgot my goals of academic success. As a student first, I joined the Pre-Professionals Club. Next year, I will be first person in my family to graduate with an undergraduate degree. I plan to direct all my experience and determination into making a difference as SGA Secretary.
