Senate: 2-year Term (2 seats available)
Why have you decided to run for this position?
“I’m running for this position because I want to get involved in change. The student senate has the power to fix academic issues at Brock. I want to help the senate continue their work advocating for every Brock student. I also want to be the voice of students putting myself aside to serve the needs, wants and likes of each student despite their situations.”
If elected, what would you like to [see the Senate] accomplish?
“One of my platform points is effective communication between governing bodies and student bodies. Right off the bat we have had issues with communication in the past and the student senate needs to provide up to date information about educational issues.”
What makes you the best candidate for this position?
“My philosophy of a leader is that a leader is a servant to his or her people. This separates me from my competitors. I’m a candidate more concerned about the academics of students. I share the same belief as the typical Brock student, I understand their complaints and wants. I have also experienced Brock in different forms as an athlete, club founder and vice president of the global philanthropy group which raises funds for the Syrian refugees. Additionally, I’m an affiliated member of playmaker, Roots, BEASA and I’m a student. I have developed the skills needed for leadership and I will be selfless in my pursuit to accommodate Brock students. I want to learn and grow from the experiences the senate will give me.”
To the best of your knowledge, what is the Senate and what does it do?

They deal with academics from determining the courses of study, standards of admissions to the University, to examination, assigning examiners and offering awards. They also advise the board on the required actions that are needed for the betterment of the institution.”
