No biography provided.


1) What motivated you to run for this position?

I find it fulfilling to represent the student body, and I enjoy finding unique ways that George Brown can affect it’s community as a college. I have a strong background in community service work, and years of networking within George Brown college.


2) What relevant experience do you feel qualifies you for this position?

I was the college representative this past year, and I am invested in seeing the position grow to an even stronger role this coming year. With a strong community service background, I was able to represent the college well, and now have a first-hand knowledge of the position’s impact on the college campuses.


3) If elected, list three primary goals you wish to accomplish during your term.

a) My consistent goal has been championing for community causes or affiliated organizations. Educating students about their options, during student placements and capstone events, is a way for students to support community causes relevant to them.

b) I would strive to continue the student experience set forth by Casa Loma’s Albert DaSilva, a 30-year coach and staff member who recently retired, following a long era of spreading generosity and kindness into his department.

c)  I will be purposed with connecting students from various departments, as well as staff members, to promote the inner diversity of George Brown college.


4) What are your main areas of interest in relation to your particular campus or program?

For my particular program one area of interest is the student placements in youth areas. While they are mandatory credits like other classes, students aren’t approved for their required placement for an entire semester. They must wait until  the college communicates with placements, but there are not always enough available.


5) George Brown is a diverse college — in what ways would you strive for representation of ALL students?

For me the goal is to bring together as many communities as possible, to all support a common cause. Whether by having the entire college be a space where everyone is welcome, or by hosting events that everyone can enjoy and be a part of, are just a few examples of where George Brown has so much potential as a college because of its diversity.
