    Emily Pham Lee

    My name is Emily Pham Lee, and I will be running for ASG President for the Associated Student Government at Mt Hood Community College. I am a first-year college student who is working for the Metropolitan Family Service to ensure better sustainability and food access for the community. I plan to graduate with a degree in BioChemistry and become a Pediatrician. I am running for presidency to make sure that I can hear student voices and embed them into the Student Life Mission Statement. By achieving and helping students achieve these goals that Mt. Hood aligns with, I can support students when needed, and create projects to better the college. With past leadership skills I’ve accomplished throughout high school and being a current member of the Hunger Relief team with Metropolitan Family Services, I can bring my passion, dedication to make sure that each student feels welcome in various areas of diversity, culture, gender, and ethnicity. I was able to talk to many different people with different backgrounds and histories to see different viewpoints throughout the time I was serving as an Americorps. I started realizing that I valued numerous acts of service. I noticed that these opportunities for acts of service are things that are happening in everyday life and that being a part of the change can impact someone else’s life in a good way. During my position as the Student Organization and Club Coordinator I have seen these changes happening; I was able to help organize events like Club Fair and make adjustments to better represent the uniqueness of each club, talk to club advisors, and work on various projects that can impact the student lives. As the President, my goal is to make sure that each students’ concerns are heard and that everybody feels welcome and has the resources they need. I can advocate for students’ rights, thoughts, and concerns, to the faculties, administrations, and legislators. I can address changes within the campus and create projects for students to do our best to resolve them to become better. I value making sure that everybody feels equal in every way possible. All cultures, gender, race, ethnicities, should be valued respectfully and equally. Everyone should feel welcome and have the resources they need to become a better student.
