Position you are running for: AFEF Board of Directors

How do you feel AFEF can benefit from you on the BoD?

As a second-year student at the School of Accounting and Finance, I’ve been involved within the school community from the beginning of my university career. I have held a position on AFSA as the current Vice President of Marketing and helped to plan and run last year’s accounting orientation. Through my initiatives, I found a sense of belonging in the school community and have and will continue to mentor students so that they can have a similar positive time. By being very involved and connected with the student body and school faculty, I believe I can voice the school’s concerns and their initiatives. With the help of AFEF, the faculty and the numerous student-ran organizations, I will be able to support new ideas and objectives to better the school community. As new students arrive at SAF, countless ideas and opportunities will open. I will be able to provide a voice for these new students and ensure brand new initiatives will not go unheard.

What current or future initiatives would you prioritize AFEF funding for?

In my two years of attending the School of Accounting and Finance, I’ve noticed a trend that many new initiatives created by students are often failing because many lacks the funding to bring their vision to reality. If I were to be elected, I will prioritize AFEF funding towards the smaller and newer student-created initiatives that has a potential to create more opportunities for SAF students to get more involved. By doing so, I hope to open-up many more opportunities to get involved especially outside of the more established clubs in SAF. This in-turn will allow new students entering university to explore many different opportunities, to meet students outside of their programs and hopefully will build a stronger sense of community.

Place your platform for your position here:

My platform is based on achieving 3 main goals; 1. To ensure initiatives no matter the size, big or small will have an equal opportunity to voice their ideas; 2. To provide additional transparency in-terms of what AFEF has funded; 3. To help fund and build new initiatives for additional opportunities for students.
