About Soyebo

I am a Junior in the Robinson College of Business. If I am fortunate enough to be elected VP of Budget and Finance, I plan to expand upon the great job that VP Corey Sams did in office. I plan to continue to be transparent with the expenditures of SGA. I plan to to be Genuine, Smart and Understanding when approving co-sponsorships. I plan to focus my approval of co-sponorships on organizations that reach the most amount of students and promote diversity, and sustainability.

I should be elected as VP of Budget and Finance because I am determined to use the finances of Georgia State to positively affect our campus, our staff, and our alumni. As the VP of Budget and Finance, I hope to increase the amount of organizations that receive funding from co-sponsorships, diversity fee and university-wide fee allocations.

I believe that “Transparency of Government” is a level of communication between government and the student body that exudes honesty and openness. As the Vice President of Budget and Finance, I plan to remain open, honest, and transparent with the student body about the expenditures of the Student Government Association.

Since my arrival on Georgia State’s Campus I have sought out positions that could help me impact my campus. As a 2013-2015 Residential Assistant at Patton Hall, I have always had a desire to impact my campus. As a 2013-2014 Senator for the Robinson College of Business, I have grown to have a great appreciation for the financial aspect of the Student Government Association. I have been an active member of committees that allocate funds such as the Student Life Committee, Diversity Fee Council and the University-Wide Fee Council. I am member of the Pre-Law Club, National Black Law Student Association, and the African student association. I am a proud brother of the Powerful Pi Alpha Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
