Candidates for Board of Governors Representative
Hello! I am in my second year of a Bachelor of Environmental and Conservation Sciences, majoring in Human Dimensions of Environmental Management; I aim to be a diplomat, developing cooperative policies with other countries to bring peace in violent places.
As Undergraduate Board of Governors Representative (BoG Rep.) I want to negotiate lower tuition increases in the coming semesters, increase board transparency with exciting advertisements, making opportunities for real relationships between students and board members and regularly consult faculty associations on local and satellite campuses to stay focused on what students need.
Previous experience that equips me for this role is my work with the Students’ Union as a Councillor representing ALES, where I developed a friendship and worked closely with this year’s BoG rep., Rowan Ley, on the Students Not Silent campaign team, learning his perspective on and approach to advocating at board meetings. Additionally, I interfaced with BoG members during a council meeting and sat on Sustainability and DIE Board Appointment Committees. Outside of Council I helped lead the student group Power to Change, where I pushed new initiatives and advocated for sustainable practices.
Apart from student life, I care about climate change, reconciliation with Indigenous people and having healthy relationships with people. I enjoy organizing stuff like my Google Drive, playing volleyball, photography and exercising!
