As a kid I used to read Children’s IKEA edition catalogs imagining what my room could look with their amazing items. I could never actually the decorations because of the cost. Fast forwarding to now in the fall of 2011 I will officially be a Junior College. Through my College career I have been heavily involved in leadership. I am a University Student Government Senator for my Campus in which I represent more than 60,000 students. As a Senator I work hard to ensure that new ideas are created and implemented to benefit the entire student body. Not only am I USG Senator I am a Student Academic Mentor (SAM). As a SAM I live in a residential community to help freshmen in College transition from High school to College academically. Through my leadership positions I have gained the greatest friendships and also have made a difference in student’s lives on my Campus. I would be fortunate to receive the IKEA shopping spree because I live out of state and I sometimes get homesick I feel like this shopping spree I can my Dorm room feel more like home. This shopping spree will give me a chance to create my own personal home in my Dorm. I hope you consider me as a possible choice.
