Being a Resident Assistant would greatly benefit both me and the fellow students because of the qualities I can contribute as a Resident Assistant. I wish to be a Resident Assistant because I am a very responsible and reliable worker. This is proven through my success in academics while participating in different extracurricular activities. I kept my GPA above 3.0 and made the dean's list past two semesters while I juggled with the outside activities such as the Business Club and the University dance team. I have had various types of jobs including a cashier at a grocery store for over three years and a waitress at a restaurant. I always showed how motivated, punctual and enthusiastic I was to the customers and the managers and earned their respect. Also, as a minority student, I would greatly help the diverse group of students residing in dormitories. They would be able to relate themselves to me and I will try to help them to the farthest extent. I will give them advice when needed, not just on the diversity-related problems but also regarding academics and even any problems they come up with. Finally, being a Resident Assistant would help my financial situation because I would be able to help out my parents and be in less debt when I graduate. In order to be a successful Resident Assistant, I will continue to be reliable, responsible, and motivated throughout the school year. I will show it through my academic success, my outgoing and open-minded personality, and hard-work ethic. I will also organize activities during holidays and make sure that students get involved and interact with each other. Through these activities, students who live in residential halls for the first time will be able to adjust and acclimate themselves to the new environment. For these reasons, I am an excellent candidate for the position of Resident Assistant.
