Hello Mid-Atlantic State. My name is Laura
Boyajian and I am so excited to be running for your next MAS Governor! The three main pillars of my platform are accessibility, efficiency, and involvement. Throughout my time within the organization, I’ve been exposed to all aspects of JSA which has provided me with the opportunity to thoroughly flesh out ways of getting each and every one of you involved. Your voice matters, and I am listening. I would love to hear your suggestions and comments so we can work together to build our vision for a better Mid-Atlantic State. #puttingthepeoplefirst
Ariel Rakovitsky is a junior at Manalapan High School and currently serves as the Gubernatorial Director of Technology. He joined JSA as a freshman and immediately fell in love with the organization he now strives to better. In the summer of 2015, he attended JSA summer school at Georgetown, and attended the Montezuma Leadership Conference in 2016. Ariel’s platform revolves around making JSA reflect the views, opinions, and needs of every individual – freshman or senior. He believes that our Junior State should be one in which all JSAers feel at home and are actively involved in each and every decision.
Dear JSA constituancy,
These past three years have most significantly molded me into the individual I am today. Uniquely, my jsa story starts off with neither the meeting that changed my life, nor the blossoming from my once shy self to a confident individual. My JSA story begins with my 14 year old self- a passionate young girl frustrated with the political and social sphere around her. I sought refuge in JSA, as a medium to relieve this frustration and learn more about the world around me. But, I soon learned that the Junior state could provide much more. JSA exposed itself as a means to empower. I learned that “be the people” is not mearely a catch phrase, but instead is the very backbone of citizenship in the United States.
Realizing the very opportunity of empowerment is what made me fall in love with JSA. But to be able to foster this same experience for others is what pushed me to run for my state’s governor. Serving as a CIA agent and the New Jersey Region Mayor, I encountered obstacles that many faced on this journey of empowerment. From Smaller picture issues, such as relations with Teacher Administration, to bigger issues, such as planning conferences with the JSApp, my diversified experience in JSA has exposed me to the ins and outs of this organization. My campaign is focused on collectively overcoming these issues in order to further the experience as a statesmen and as an American. JSA has been one of the reasons that I am able to take pride in my American and fully engage myself in affairs in the real world. Join me, and together we’ll set new records and empower more people.
