Anna Szostek, a Junior from Brooklyn, NY is the SGA Vice-President for the 2015-2016 academic school year. Anna is a Dean’s List Biomedical Science Major, as well as an active member of TriBeta National Biological Honor Society. Upon graduating Cortland, she aspires to go to Medical School in hopes of becoming an anesthesiologist.
Anna became involved in SGA within the first two months of her Freshman year, as she quickly fulfilled the role of a Senator. Not only did she attend biweekly Senate meetings, she spent a lot of time meeting with other Senators, in determining what clubs should be approved on campus. Anna quickly found a passion for being involved, and she was elected for the position of Secretary at the end of her Freshman year, then making her way as Vice-President by the end of her Sophomore year. During this time, Anna decided to become a part of the Alpha Phi Sisterhood, the Biomedical Science Club and she served as an Undergraduate Representative for the Academic Grievance Tribunal.
Being a part of all these organizations, Anna had the opportunity to watch herself, her peers and the students of Cortland grow as individuals and leaders. SGA set out a road of many new opportunities for Anna, where she was able to meet many new people and learn skills that she will take on for the rest of her life. Anna plans to continue getting involved and being the voice of the student body for the next upcoming years here at SUNY Cortland, and cannot wait to see what the future holds.
