My name is Grace Federico and I am a freshman from Baltimore, Maryland, majoring in Apparel Design. On top of being a student, I am the Philanthropy Chairwoman for my sorority, Gamma Phi Beta, and a Conference Coordinator at the Ferguson Student Center. I am running for senator for the College of Human Environmental Sciences because I want to be a voice for all students and create positive changes on UA’s campus. Additionally, would like to better classroom enviornments and improve inclusivity on campus.
If elected as a Senator and given the opportunity to represent the College of Human Environmental Science, I would actively pursue the main goal of my college– serve others and improve the lives of those around me. This leadership role would give me the opportunity to work for my peers and aid the University of Alabama in becoming the best campus it can be. I would strive to create a positive environment for all students by providing the most up to date information regarding what services and opportunities are being offered on campus. I also want to help improve certain aspects of my individual college, such as working to increase available quantities of tutors for students in HES. Throughout this year, I have had the wonderful opportunity to partake in Freshman Forum First Year Experience. This program immensely increased my leadership skills, and taught me so many new and unique approaches to working with a group, delegating, and taking charge when necessary. The additional leadership training I gained through Freshman Forum, my past experience serving as the Speaker of the House in my high school’s student government, as well as becoming a student ambassador for my high school prepared me to lead and assist others. I believe that I am well equipped and qualified to take on the duties and responsibilities of being a Senator for the Student Government Association. I am excited to share my ideas and passion for bettering the UA campus with the student body, and I humbly request your support. Thank you.
