Sharon John is a sophomore at the University at Buffalo, majoring in Pharmacy. Ever since she began her education she knew she did not want to be just another number in a large institution. She soon understood that her heart's passion was to help serve her community in every capacity she could. Her first step in advocating for students began when she became a member of the Student Government and the Chair of the Legislative Committee at UB. That position catapulted her into being an International Admissions Ambassador for her school. Working and mentoring over 400 students, she realized that student affairs and working for their easy transition is a commitment she wanted to take on for the next 4 years of her college career. She was chosen to be an Orientation Leader and Resident Advisor for 2019-2020. ​
