SGO Election Fall 2021
SGO Vice Presidents -- All Students Vote in this Election
For those who don’t know me as the girl in the Ikea-hat leading the orientations this summer, Hi! My name is Devyani (@dev4vp) and I’m a senior fine arts major. I have worked closely with the administration, and you want someone who has that experience with them since we are a month into the school year. I lead the BigSib program that 1000+ of you are a part of, SAT club, Freshmen-Art-Feature, and much more. If there is anything I want you to take from this, it is that I have put my heart and soul into this school and that I will continue to do that this year. Most importantly, if you vote for me, you are voting for a friendly face. Dev4vice!
LaGuardia, I’m Matthew Cheung, an Instrumental Major running to be your next SGO Vice President. In my 3 years at LaGuardia, I’ve come to have a comprehensive understanding of the school’s strengths, as well as its shortcomings. At this point, candidates can only make promises. But with your vote, I can fulfill all of my promises to you. I intend to co-lead this school with dignity and transparency. You deserve to know where our time and resources are going. My priorities include (but are not limited to): investing in students’ mental health, creating open and relaxed environments where students can enjoy free periods, and expanding the school’s athletic department. LaGuardia, help me give back to the school that has given me so much!
As Vice President, it will be my mission to make sure every student’s voice is heard. I will work alongside the SGO to bring lasting and impactful changes to the school. Some of the ideas I will execute will be making sure things such as masks are made more accessible, setting up fundraisers to give back to our community (book drives, school supply drives, etc.), utilizing Zoom to put together things such as open mics, host weekly meetings with the SGO (students will be updated with important information and will get to share ideas), and more. When I put my mind to something, I get it done. I will always listen to the students and advocate for what they want.
I am Sydney Lazare and I wholeheartedly believe that as Vice President, I can help make the changes that our school community needs to see. The most important aspect in bettering our school community is amplifying our students' voices. It is my utmost priority to make our school a place where students can flourish and discover themselves, rather than feel lost and ostracized. After a long period of separation, we need to bring back unity amongst our school community. Make the transition back smoothly by providing more resource, guidance, and clarity to our students as we prepare for college and/or pursuit of our interests. I would like to make an accessible and clear online calendar to mark important events as they get scheduled. Mental
I will be the people’s Vice President. During my tenure, I pledge to increase the energy efficiency of Laguardia high school, work with our SGO president to allocate increased funding to our arts, and follow through on my 6 Step Plan that will make our school work for everyone.
I, Alyssa Rouchon, wish to run for student council vice-president because I would like to aid all LaGuardians in their journey balancing the arts and their education. I hope to help implement changes that will impact our school for the better. My motto is "I am here", because I want to be there for the LaGuardia students to lend a helping hand, answer all your burning questions, support and provide you with all the aid you need to better your four years here at LaGuardia. It would be an honor to work closely with my peers, faculty and staff, as well as the president, and be part of the bridge between the student body and LaGuardia faculty and staff.
Hello, my name is Willa Tucker and I would love to be your vice president! I am a senior drama major and I want the opportunity to make LaGuardia an even better place during my last year here. As a former camp counselor, I believe I have the leadership skills required to take on this position. Additionally, due to this year’s special election, we have the benefit of already knowing the other members of the SGO. I already have positive relationships with many SGO leaders and I am confident in my ability to work alongside them. As VP I will prioritize your needs. I want to be an advocate for you, the student body. Lastly, I want to work to support the current SGO in

As class president I will try to ensure that everyone's voice is heard and I will try to establish a freshman council that will allow every freshman to vote on important decisions that will help our Freshman year at LAG be the best it can possibly be. I will reach out to local venues to showcase the LAG students amazing talents, which will bring more opportunities to share our work with our community. I will support the school on creating some COVID safe social events to raise funds to support the after school clubs. I am open to ideas and suggestions and I hope I can serve as your Freshman Class President.

Hey! My name is Silvia and I am a Freshman. I am really nervous to try for this role. I have never been able to be in this type of position! This year is very hectic since everyone is returning back from remote learning. I am very antisocial if you first meet me but when you get to know me I am very bright. For me personally, it was very hard to meet new people after being at home for more than a year. Everyone is trying their best to make the situation as normal as possible. Therefore, I will try to fulfill the duties of Freshman President and try to make my flaws into something new! Thank you :)
Hi, my name is Connie and I would like to your freshman president. To keep it short I like simple things done quick and fun. I would like to be able to come up with more student events for fundraising and shows (for instance allowing volunteers to host a carnival/ festival event outside which clubs and individuals can sign up. Adding on, more resources shall be provided to students (like food). I would also like to help the school become greener and healthier. No empty promises, just worth the trust
My Name is Hakimah Malam, and I’m running for Freshman SGO class president. As president I wanna make sure that Freshman have a great LaGuardia experience without having to deal with the thought that we are still in a pandemic. A problem that needs to be fixed is the lunch situation. We are privileged with the right to finally go outside for lunch, but what about the lunch provided by the school? The lunch at school is very cold and not enough for the time period. Another problem is the escalators, a bunch of people during periods are using them and they tend to break down a lot, which causes both problems with transitioning to classes. I hope you consider me as the right choice.
Hi I’m Zandi Miller, a freshman drama major. As a SGO member my goal would be to create a safe environment for all freshman students and listening to any problems or concerns you may have, whether it be personal problems, Someone’s being insensitive or discriminatory towards you, or maybe you just wanna talk for funzies.. In the past I’ve had experiences in which I participated in student government. I've also worked with New York State senator from the 36th district Jamaal Bailey in the past helping my community. I am passionate about holding this position in office because I feel that I can help bring awareness to social justice issues that affect the school and more specifically affect the freshman art departments. I want all

I am Simone Vysnovsky and I’m a vocal major major. I have experience with leadership and if elected I promise to make our freshman year amazing and memorable. I led many service projects and fundraisers in my time in NJHS and I won the Outstanding Achievement Award for my service to the community. I promise to listen and use your ideas to help improve our class of 2025. I will represent our voices and bring light to whatever needs attention. In this short time we’ve been here I feel like we can accomplish lots and I will help unify our class. We are a family and I would do everything in my power to make sure our voice is heard. Vote Simone for Class 2025.
I feel compelled to become the representative of freshmen because I believe that it will be a good opportunity to see and evaluate my values in terms of leadership and showing compassion and bringing this school to greater heights. I hope that if I do become the representative, I will still stand alongside my fellow classmates in the hopes of leading this school to a better future and I want to create new clubs and do new things that have never been done in this school before. I feel like being a freshmen allows me to be experimental with the way I do things because I want to try out new things and I want people to give me criticism or advice as to how
