Hello, my name is Angelica Nevarez and I am interested in serving our community once again at John Adams Campus. I have learned so much to become a better individual, a student, and a guide through my time as Vice President, beginning in Fall 2019. 
The primary reason why I want to run for office is for the love of my John Adams family. There have been several times throughout the semester where people ask me if I am doing too much, and to be truthful, I never thought of my efforts as work or hassle. What motivates and pushes me are the smiles of our John Adams community. I really care about the CCSF community, including our faculty as to what our needs, hopes, and future are. 
I am not perfect, but I can listen to the needs, concerns, and accomplishments that our John Adams family has to offer. I would like to continue this leadership position so that I am able to work with others and learn how to continue the CCSF community spirit. 
 
One of the amazing things about being a part of the CCSF Associated Student Council is guiding, protecting, and supporting the community. I love connecting with other students, faculty, and our outside community and how I get to hear them on a human level. I am not here to prove that I am right or wrong with politics, but I am here to listen and to create realistic solutions and guide the rest of our community on what the plans are to execute challenging times. 
 
Through my experience as the Vice-President, I was able to meet amazing students with desire to succeed both in academics and in their futures. As someone that deals with mental health, I understand the importance to be there for others. It’s much more than providing snacks through our Snack Program, but to be able to remind our community that they are human beings and that at CCSF, they will have the support and resources to be the best version of themselves. 
 
I understand the frustrations of those in our community with certain concerns regarding our school. But as I mentioned above, listening to one another is more effective and to make sure as a leader to have that connection with our community, and as a team, figure out what is needed to resolve it helps us understand how to overcome a challenge. Nothing can move forward without hope, diligence, and support. 
That also goes with life. 
 
My goal is to help our John Adams community become stronger by creating awareness and support to our John Adams family. This includes resources to medical, food, mental, child-care and housing resources that can work with us to provide on-site support on our campus. I want to give students and our community less things to worry about so that they can focus on their studies. If students are able to receive the support that they need, then they will be able to shine bright with their heads up high, representing CCSF in their careers.
