This week’s featured message is from Mohammed Khalil, VP of Community Involvement. Here’s what Mohammed wanted to share with our readers:
“SGA was a blessing to me. I was able to interact with so many people, learn so much from one of the coolest and most inspirational people I have ever met–you rock Sandra!–and be a part of a team that all wanted to do something great for the school that made us who we are.
GGU is a school dedicated to improve the foundation of all of the students that attend. Being a part of SGA gives you an opportunity to also help with this maturation. Being a leader is a job that takes guts, determination and above all a fantastic work ethic. If you’re interested in becoming the new voice of the students, be prepared to bring your A-game and be prepared to strive for greatness. Be prepared for having awesome stories to tell and adding one kick-ass line on your resume.
SGA needs leaders that want to help the GGU community to grow and GGU needs doers, thinkers and people that want to give back. Be this change. Be the most awesome person that you can be. BE SGA!“
