Petition for 2L class representative
Hello everyone. My name is Jasmyn Metcalf and I running for your 2L class representative.
I graduated from Florida State University in 2019 with a major in political science and a minor in African American studies. My experience in political science has taught me to step back and view the situation for the opposite side and try to understand the way they feel. I believe this will help me be a good representative for my class.
I have previous experience in a leadership role with being the secretary of Eternal Legendary Queens. This organization mentored young ladies in near by high school to support and motivate them to apply and go to college. I was involved for 3 years and I would organize meeting notes, send emails to members, and assign mentors to mentees. This was one of the most fulfilling times in my life.
After I graduated from FSU I moved to Michigan to take care of my grandmother. Once I moved, I worked with the Michigan Chronicle, one of the first black owned newspapers in the country. There I organized events for professionals in the community using their education and skills to give back to the less fortunate. It was a great experience where I learned organization skills, communication skills, and ways organizations get involved in issues facing our community.
I also got involved in DACA and Expose 2 Inspire, which are volunteer based organizations that expose youth to jobs and professionals in STEM fields. This experienced showed me to how represent others that may not be able to represent themselves.
I believe I would be a good fit as a 2L representative because of I have a genuine passion for bettering our Law School experience. I believe that my experience in the community and pass leadership position can help me to view issues in a way that is conscious of our diverse class.
If you have any questions about my campaign, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or 321-295-6214. I look forward to servicing the Detroit Mercy Law community for the 2022-2023 academic year.
