Position running for:

Treasurer

WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF THE UNIVERSITY SALSA CLUB EXECUTIVE BOARD? 

This club has given me some of my best times at UVA, and I would like to give back with the skills and knowledge that I have gained. Working closely with the treasurer as a salsa fest funding chair, I have learned the fundamental jobs the treasurer carries out, and what is necessary to keep the exchanges of funds efficient and running smoothly.

 

HOW DO YOUR TALENTS OR ABILITIES MAKE YOU WELL-EQUIPPED FOR YOUR DESIRED POSITION? 

I was the salsa fest funding chair for salsa fest 2017. With that, I learned the importance of communication and organization when completing reimbursements. Also, I have experience with how the funding application process works for several of the major fund sources. I am good with numbers and most importantly dedicated to this club.

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF TO SOMEONE WHO DID NOT KNOW YOU?

I am a logical thinker who loves to dance and have fun when I am not on the grind. As a pre-med student, I have high aspirations.
