John Habib
Speaker of the Senate

My goal for university was always trying to promote student advocacy. Often, students are unaware of those in their department, what route to take, etc. With more involvement and knowledge, students would not be as unaware to what they wat to do during/after college. Hence, I have created blueprints for a MedExpo. This MedExpo will have students who wish to pursue a career in the medical field attend and learn from those who are FIU alumni. And in various other medical professions to learn, understand, and be inspired by what/which route they should take.

Throughout my involvement in the Student Government Association, I have been able to gain considerable insight into the lives of the students here at BBC.Through the position of Vice Presidency, I seek to elevate the experience here. I plan to actively bring to light the importance of environment and sustainability through educational forums and workshops as well as improve communication through engaging activities and bi-weekly conversations with the students. I plan to improve the BBC culture through creating more BBC-Specific traditions involving the Bay and all the resources available here on this campus. Throughout my involvement in the Student Government Association, I have been able to gain.
