He said he found his home at UNC through his classes, student government, Greek life and Musical Empowerment, among other organizations.
“I recognize, though, that not everyone has that experience, that feeling that they belong here, and that’s unfair,” Sink said.
“I’ve been really fortunate in my time here, but I’m running because I feel called to serve to make sure that my experience is not unique.”
Sink’s platform focuses on three major themes to help define Carolina as a home: space, stories and service.
He said space will focus on the physical aspects of UNC, and the stories portion focuses on students’ experiences at UNC.
He said engaging students in democracy is the most important issue to him — and that falls under the service theme.
“We have a voice to speak out through activism, but also we have a voice to vote, and I don’t think students utilize that enough,” he said. “It’s important that we recognize that there is power to change things if you choose to act.”
Sink’s interests go beyond politics. He said he is passionate about music, and he is involved in Musical Empowerment, an organization that offers free music lessons to underprivileged children in the area.
