I’m Garth Vernon aka Marvel. For the past 10 years I have been the leader to a community group known as The House of Monroe. We have done countless dance performances, runway fashion shows as well as organize, host and participate in community events here in Canada and the US.
I have always been highly interested in the entertainment industry. I use to dance on a competitive level and for corporate events. Now I’m putting more focus into acting, my comic book, and script writing.
I have faced grave medical barriers that would potentially keep me from achieving my goals but I put in the work and now I’m doing a lot better and continuing on my path to achieving what I want. 3weeks ago I never thought I would be a candidate for anything to do with a leadership role In College but when I think about it, I have been in such a position for the past 10 years.
I’m care for pretty much everyone I know and don’t know maybe a little too much but that doesn’t necessarily have to be a negative. I do not encourage bullying of anyone whether I like them or not. I am a firm believer that “Everything Happens for A Reason” and I stand by it no matter how much whatever it is sucks. I am constantly aiming to do better in everything I do and I do my best to encourage those around me to do the same.
1) What motivated you to run for this position?
What motivated me to run for this position began when a fellow candidate informed me about it. He went on to explain everything to me including the stuff he had previously done in this position that I am now running for. Since then I was interested in the entire process.
2) What relevant experience do you feel qualifies you for this position?
My experience for the past 10 years as a community leader and a figure head in my dance performance and fashion group known as the House of Monroe and still going is what I feel is relevant experience that qualifies me for this position.
3) If elected, list three primary goals you wish to accomplish during your term.
I would like to continue to bridge the gap between heterosexual and LGBTQ students while in the same space. I would like the LGBTQ students to be completely aware of all the resources the school has to offer. I would like the LGBTQ students to feel they can be involved with what’s happening at school and not have to hide themselves out of fear and shame.
4) What are your main areas of interest in relation to your particular campus or program?
My main area of interest in my program would be marketing and the fact that it gives me enough information to go forward and be okay in the future with what I plan on doing. The hands on and text book knowledge gives me kind of a greater advantage.
5) George Brown is a diverse college — in what ways would you strive for representation of ALL students?
As a George Brown Rep I would strive for all student to be able to work, play. Learn, eat, and dance etc. together. I will lead by example and engage in thing I may not be familiar with. I will show we can all be whoever we want.
