My purpose is to make tasks easy to achieve and to make life easier in the workplace for my colleagues and myself. My mission as a professional is to create a workplace where goals are met by implementing comprehensive solutions while thriving in a fun and relaxed environment.
Throughout my life, I have learned how to be an effective and efficient team member by actively listening; properly delegating tasks; and managing conflict before there is conflict, just to name a few. It is also a commitment of mine to assist everyone I work with in becoming better, instead of just seeking successes for myself. Better leaders benefit everyone.
I strive to achieve this by being dedicated, determined, and dependable and leading by example. Regardless of my role within a team or a company, I approach each assignment with an open mind, a willingness to learn, and an unwavering passion for succeeding.

The Government also ensures that the student voice is heard in all matters of University life.
In addition to assisting the Executive Board members in managing the daily operations of the Student Government, my responsibilities specifically as Vice President of Finance was to create and manage the Government's $7,000 budget.
Other responsibilities included serving as a liaison to the Allocations Board, a student-run organization responsible for determining the distribution of the undergraduate student fee to eligible student groups at Boston University for programming. The budget we managed totals nearly half a million dollars. We would distribute funds based on how the group's programming would enrich student life, among other factors.
Lastly, I oversaw the processing of all financial obligations of the Government, along with maintaining all financial records and publishing them during Senate -- a general assembly of students that represent the University's college governments, residence halls, and Greek organizations that convened bi-weekly. From May 2012 to December 2012 (8 months) Greater Boston AreaOffice Assistant, Facilities Managment & Planning @ BU Facilities Management and Planning is a department that operates around the clock to maintain over 400 University buildings and facilities across two campuses.
My main role within this department is inspecting the large dormitories, apartments, and other University-owned housing units for emergency repairs, improvements, cleaning, and other forms of maintenance.

From May 2012 to August 2012 (4 months) Greater Boston AreaChairman, Advocacy Committee @ After the unfortunate departure of two previous chairmen, I was voted upon by my committee to ensure that the great strides this group had made were continued. To my knowledge, I was the first freshman to lead one of the Government's committees.
As Chairman, it was my responsibility to facilitate and organize the student leaders on the Advocacy Committee to work directly with University administrators to ensure that student concerns brought up during Senate meetings were heard.
In order to this, we would first assess student needs by either sending out surveys (via our Outreach Committee) or hosting forums/town halls (via the Events Committee). After we have that information, I assisted the committee in establishing plans of action to outline how we are going to address a matter to ensure relevant decision making.
During my tenure as Chairman, the committee presented a proposal on establishing a gender-neutral housing option (a living space in which both males and females can reside in) to University administrators. This proposal was presented to administration in Spring 2012 and was approved in August 2013. Details of the initiative can be found here - http://lnkd.in/bnyJBJQ.
In addition to that, we worked on a multitude of others issues, notably carefully crafting a campus-wide smoking courtesy campaign and devising plans to create 24/7 study spaces. From February 2012 to April 2012 (3 months) Greater Boston AreaConversion Crew Member @ My responsibilities entailed collaborating with individuals to set-up and prepare intricate, detailed layouts for a variety of events ranging from sporting contests to concerts.

Other responsibilities included maintaining the cleanliness of the arena during and prior to events. From September 2011 to April 2012 (8 months) Vice President @ It is the responsibility of the Warren Towers Residence Hall Association (WTRHA) to provide an optimal living experience for its 1700+ students in residence (the largest residence on campus) by addressing concerns and planning events.
As Vice-President, I was charged with representing the voices of my residence hall in the Boston University Student Government, as well as presiding in the President's absence to carry out the work of this organization.
I, in collaboration with our Treasurer, was also in charge of appropriating funds from a $10,000+ budget to 40+ residence assistants (trained peer leaders assign to supervise for specific halls/buildings) and threebfaculty-in-residence (full-time BU faculty members that serve as mentors and reside primarily in a BU residence) for events and projects . I created an information system through Google Drive that allowed RAs and FIRs to request funds and outlined how they would be utilized, which streamlined the appropriation process. This system expedited the approval process of requests from two weeks to three days.
Since my colleagues and I were fortunate to not have too many quality of life issues, we focused most of our efforts on planning wonderful events, such as a 20-team Stump Trivia night - which won the David Zamojski Award (see "Awards" for more information) - and a trip to Manhattan that was attended by more than 100 residents. The Manhattan trip is now an annual event. From September 2011 to April 2012 (8 months) Senator, Warren Towers @ I represented the Warren Towers dormitory, the largest residence at Boston University with over 1700+ students calling it their home away from home.

In addition to representing the voices of my dorm in this capacity, I am also a member and chairman of the Advocacy Committee, a body in charge of strategizing with University professionals in relevant decision-making that addresses student concerns.
I successfully fought against the Union's pursuit of a campus-wide smoking ban and instead advocated for a campus-wide courtesy campaign directed towards smokers and non-smokers, which is currently implemented.
In addition to that, I, alongside my fellow committee members, drafted a proposal for creating a gender neutral housing (GNH), living spaces in which both male and females can reside in, policy at BU. I created a 16-question survey that was distributed to 5-10 peer instituions to gather information on their GNH policies. I also appeared on a GNH panel for the student body to ask questions about the policy. From September 2011 to April 2012 (8 months) Website Co-Editor, North Clayton High @ From September 2009, I worked alongside North Clayton High's Technology Contact and IT/Web Design teacher, Henry Laws, in maintaining and updating the school website for the students, faculty, staff and community of the school.
My duties ranged from adding and proofreading announcements, updating sports results, working alongside student organizations to update their webpages, and instructing teachers on how to maintain their personal websites for their classes. The platform we used for this system was SchoolDesk.
In September 2010, our partnership evolved into a class with about 15 students with no to moderate web design skills. I began instructing students on how to carry out the aforementioned duties and many others. These students would report to me on statuses of tasks and would review over material on the website with me to ensure it reaches established standards.
After graduating in May 2011, I was remained with the team in an advisory role through November 2011 to help assist a new staff member that would replace Henry Laws, who was being promoted. From September 2009 to November 2011 (2 years 3 months) State Sergeant-at-Arms @ Serving on a team of 7 individuals representing the Georgia delegation of the internationally student-led organization that is the Technology Student Association.

From September 2010 to February 2011 (6 months) Student @ Over the course of about a year, the Maynard Jackson Youth Foundation Leadership Academy, a non-profit program created by the late Atlanta mayor, Maynard Jackson, provided me (as well as other metro-Atlanta high schools Juniors) the skills and principles of ethical and moral leadership, critical thinking, entrepreneurship, public service, and how to prepare for continued education. These skills allowed me to ascend to leadership roles in and outside of high school that I would not been able to achieve had it not been for this generous organization. From September 2009 to August 2010 (1 year)
