To Whom This May Concern,

Over the past months, I have had the opportunity to serve as the Marquette University Student Government (MUSG) President. In these months, I have been challenged and stretched in ways I would not have been exposed to in other positions. Serving in this role, I have gained a taste of the world of advocacy, university strategy and leadership. I am grateful for the people I have had the opportunity to engage in conversation with as well as for the opportunity to open the eyes of students to a greater scope of the city we live in and the issues and successes we are faced with.

I write this letter to announce that I have made the decision to resign from the Presidential position within the Marquette University Student Government (MUSG). Due to personal reasons and unforeseen circumstances, I am no longer able to fulfill the responsibilities of the role of president. After various conversations, I feel and know it is in the best interest of the student government organization and the student body that I resign from the position. 

Moving forward, Adam Kouhel will serve as the President of MUSG for the remainder of this term. I have full confidence in Adam, the Executive Board, and the members of the MUSG family to carry out the duties and responsibilities of the MUSG organization.

In the words of a wise mentor and close friend: there is not a better we before a better me. As I have always been told, nada es imposible, nothing is impossible – underlying this statement is self-care and love. I continue to believe that nothing is impossible but am putting a focus on self-care and growth.

We are in a new era where personal knowledge, self-care and a capacity to feel[1] and love are as important as our physical accomplishments. 

I am grateful for all of the love and genuine care that I received in my time as the President of MUSG. Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to seeing MUSG continue to grow in the coming months and in the future. 

With much gratitude,

Abraham Ortiz Tapia
