Francisco Eujenin Campos*
Academic Program: Liberal Arts Transfer
Senate Position Running For: Madison Senator
Involvement: Before coming to Madison College I went to a different technical college, NWTC, there I was part of the student senate and also a student ambassador. Since it was a small college, I was the only international student in the student senate, therefore, it was difficult to make people hear what I had to say. With the help of my self initiative, I overcame that difficulty and started taking the initiative in some project (most of them related with diversity and inclusion). Last semester, I joined the organization United Common Ground here in campus, there I learned a lot more about different cultures and I realized how diverse this country and college really are. I also started volunteering at Academia Latina, a center that helps Spanish speaking students to earn their GED.
What qualities and skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for Senate?
Since my early years in high school I have always had leadership positions and since I got to the U.S. I have been working really hard to make the language stop being a barrier for my leadership skills. I have years of experience at organizing events I am very good with social media.
What would you like to accomplish with the Student Senate?
I want to be able to show my leadership skills, emphasize more the diversity in campus, and help to improve the presence of Madison College in the community.
