I am fluent in both English and Filipino. I naturally have a highly analytical mindset which I have learned to utilize in handling both professional and non-professional situations. Given my multiple tutoring experiences, I am adept in communicating complex information to a variety of personalities. Whether as a leader or as a team player, I am very critical in keeping a high standard in any kind of output and I highly prioritize the integrity of the group.
PLATFORM You are not allowed to have more than three (3) Main Points. USE PROPER FORMAT. Strictly ONE (1) LINE ONLY for each Main Point and NO MORE THAN SEVEN (7) LINES for the Details. Use only Cambria, 10 Font. Note: A sentence does not automatically correspond to one line.
MAIN POINT 1: Restructure the three Academics Department Pools Reforms will be made such that there are two-‐three heads and a certain number of deputies per pool. This structure improves the efficiency of the pools because of the wider opportunities for division of labor (similar to the PH-‐core relationship), and at the same time, it creates an avenue for willing members to step-‐up and grow within the organization. Also, because of the multiple positive feedbacks from both the math department and the math majors, the class tutorials for math majors will also be further emphasized. The duties of the Archivist pool (collection and database of previous LTS, blueprint) will dissolve into a relatively smaller but more specialized team, in order to decrease idleness and improve efficiency. MAIN POINT 2: Reinforce member relations and member care A long unresolved problem of the Academics Department is the lack of substantial interpersonal relationships among members and also the significant number of inactive members. To answer this, in addition to the semestral GAs, the new proposed Pool Head-‐Deputy system (from point 1) will require weekly meetings (interval may be flexible). The pool heads are also expected to conduct consultations (Individual or Group) to their members at least once a semester. For non-‐pool members, an anonymous feedback regarding their academics will be required not only to increase their involvement, but also to acquire information regarding other areas of improvement in supporting the members. MAIN POINT 3: Render policies for continuity and efficient project management To promote continuity or even to further improve the overall quality of our projects, current project heads (and possibly, core members too), are required to consult with the project head(s) from the previous year. Since duties of core members are relatively different between AMO and Sipnayan, this consultation can prepare the team for project-‐specific scenarios and it further acquaints the team to their assigned project. Furthermore, to increase efficiency and participation of core members, project heads will be requested to create GANT charts and assign each core member to tasks preemptively. This gives a further sense of involvement and a sense of responsibility to core members, which will then decrease inactivity.
