Why have you decided to run for this position?

“As a first year, I wasn’t too happy with the quality of equipment within the Math and Science Faculty such as lab equipment at Brock. Also, as a Muslim student I was limited by the already restricted food options on campus. As a result, I ran for council last year and offered solutions to these issues. I want to continue fighting for the students of my faculty in ensuring that they have the best possible experience at Brock!”

What makes you the best candidate for this position?

“As an active volunteer within the community at large, I feel that I am the best candidate for this position due to my experience as an elected member of BUSAC. I have a good understanding of how to find appropriate solutions to the issues students face across campus.”

How do you plan to represent the students of your faculty?

“I will advocate for the students, by addressing the following issues:

1) Improving the learning environment at Brock — promoting podcasts in lectures and pre-lab demonstration videos to increase efficiency in-lab.

2) Advocating for mental health issues

3) Promoting healthier and more diverse food options at Brock

4) Improving accessibility to campus with faster bus routes

5) Better communication and transparency to encourage students to give their input and keep them connected. I want to maximize the potential of students in my faculty by informing them of all the opportunities at their disposal.”

To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?

“BUSAC is the largest student governing body on campus. It deals with a lot of issues regarding club funding, policies, and referendums. If students or clubs have issues, they bring it to us and we collectively work to find appropriate solutions. It’s a very structured organization. I had the privilege of representing my faculty on BUSAC this year, and it was a great learning experience for me during which I met many students within my faculty and worked towards improving their experience at Brock.”
