Throughout my seven years here at UCF I have witnessed the campus grow and change from a small university that was just getting started, to becoming a nationally ranked school in both academics and athletics.
I'm proud to have been a part of that change, but my journey here at UCF is coming to an end. I couldn't be more excited to have accepted my dream job working for the U.S. Department of Transportation.
It was a tough decision for me to make, but as of Feb. 17, I will be resigning as your student body Vice President. This departure is bittersweet for me, but in February I will be relocating to begin my job at the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center in Virginia as a Highway Research Engineer.
Out of all of the experiences I have had over my seven years here at UCF, I would have to say being the Vice President of the student body has been the most memorable.
I would like to thank all of you for being a part of my life here at UCF. With our campus being so diverse it has been a learning experience for me to be able to work and learn amongst all different types of people, and that experience is truly invaluable.
I am who I am today because of the experiences I've had here at UCF. I'm going to miss getting Joffrey's Coffee in the Union, jumping into the Reflection Pond during Spirit Splash and getting to campus at the crack of dawn so I don't have to fight for parking.
But I know that the university is in good hands, it's in the hands of the students, and I trust that the Student Government Association will continue to advocate the vision of the Kilbride & Lochrane administration. Like our school motto, "Reach for the Stars", it symbolizes having goals and working hard to accomplish them.
UCF stands for opportunity, and it has given me the opportunity to accomplish my goals. I am a Knight, and I will forever be a Knight.
