Meet the Candidates: Lor Conde
Interview by Danielle Co
Why do you want to become the next school year’s auditor?
I had experiences na with finances being the previous treasurer of our batch and nakapaghawak na rin ako ng positions and responsibilities with related to finances, like I was the marketing head of our christmas party pati the ways and means committee head in one activity of a previous org. Pati being an overall head like sa prev med, naging involved din naman ako how we budget projects and how to ensure na well accounted lahat ng transactions.
Why auditor? Kasi I checked the responsibilities and nakita ko na these are the stuffs that I would enjoy doing and I had a vision din on what projects to do and how to implement them. Last year din as batch treasurer talagang gusto ko ung maging transparent yung finances and na alam ko saan pumupunta ung pera
Tell us about a time when you balanced multiple responsibilities.
I would say nung 3rd yr college ko when I had to run as finance rep, then I had to practice for my choir group kasi we had a gig abroad, then I was a project hood of one of our activities sa community and I had to maintain my grades as a pharmacy student. Ang hirap kasi nun kasi lahat yun was new, first time ko mag run at first time ko maghead ng project na community oriented. Tsaka pala sa pag run ko as finance dun nagka-idea na rin ako kung anong magagandang projects ang pwedeng ma-implement. Another one din was nung first year, nung MGMR 2015 and christmas party marketing, I had to balance my time especially since yung pagtawag ng sponsors dapat medyo class hours.
What skills and strength do you possess that are specific to carry out the duties of an auditor?
Like I said, medyo “OC” ako sa kung saan pumupunta at nanggagaling yung pera. I also believe na I’m fair and I know how to handle things professionally.
I also had experience in basic accounting since may ganung subject kami sa pharmacy and also nung high school I represented our region sa national bookkeeping contest.
What are your ideas and goals for the next school year as an officer of the student council?
We (Bor Lor) have WoRTH IT projects so kung mapapansin niyo we’re trying to have a communication between organizations kasi overlapping lang din naman yung members sa orgs and of course one whole Lukan Family din tayo. I’m also pushing for One Lukan FB group para mas madali yung communication between batches and para we can get to know each other more na rin.
What one word best describes you.
Is there anything you would like to leave us with as a final message to the students?
I assure everyone that I will do my tasks. I hope the Lukan community will be more united next year and help one another through our projects.
