Candidate Bios: Medicine & Dentistry
Students' Council (1 seat available)
Hello, I’m Nikki Chopra and I am running for Students’ Union Councillor, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry Rep. I previously completed my Bachelor of Science with a major in Biological Sciences and minor in Psychology at the University of Alberta and am currently in my first year in the MD Program.
I believe that I am a good fit for this position because I have a passion for advocating for student interests instilled by several years of experience. During my past five years at this university, I have served in similar student leader positions both at the university as well as in the community at large. I worked at Res Services, University of Alberta for almost three years as a Resident Assistant and Senior Resident Assistant during which I had the opportunity to serve a large portion of the university’s student body and work alongside several student leaders across campus.
I am also passionate about mental health awareness and have worked towards removing the stigma attached. I was a Jack Talks Speaker and served on the executive team of the UAlberta Jack.org Chapter.
I look forward to the many opportunities to serve the student body that will be provided by the Students’ Union Councillor (FoMD Rep) position.
