President Candidate Omar Miyazaki’s Statement

Omar Miyazaki and Omar Miyazaki

Now, as in times in the past, a sturdy wall has arisen in our path. Life as a student incorporates not only the difficulty of long hours of grueling school work, but also a constant juggle between the multitude of responsibilities including work, family and friends, and a constant pressure from the admirable goals we have set to achieve. San Diego City College is the institute where we have bestowed our trust to carry us on the right path. Our college has more to offer than the education inside the classroom.

Outside the classroom we can be awed by the activities that fill the air with excitement at Gordon Quad, or by participating in the wide array of clubs that have lead to self-discovery and perpetual friendships. I, as many have, experience times of hardship and joy. I believe full of conviction that our experience outside the classroom helps us triumph in our personal and educational goals. I want to use the position of ASG president to enrich the pivotal college experience in every student.

The opportunity given to me of becoming SIFE’s (Students in Free Enterprise) BRC (Business Resource Center) manager allowed me lead a hard working group of students to achieve better services through innovative projects. Equally, I want to assist San Diego City College students by beginning and supporting new projects that can better serve students in the changing environment we live in.

From my experience as treasurer in the Mesa Honors Club I want to sustain a healthy budget through the effects of our economical situation while enforcing monetary policies to serve the students, where every dollar spent will efficiently produce more rewarding activities and funds to clubs.

I have learned the value of compassion through the social programs where I have participated such as feeding the needy at St. Vincent de Paul, procuring toys for less resourceful children at Christmas, and helping ill children through MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association). I believe in the necessity to create an environment that fosters a benevolent community where student can feel safe, grow, and cooperative to fulfill their endeavors.

I want to become the ASG president to devote myself to the students and enrich our stay at San Diego City College as it will propel us toward brighter future. We have proven capable and worthy, we will reach the results we have longed for, create a school that we can proudly proclaim, and reach our goals to guarantee a better tomorrow for everyone.
