Student-at-Large (16 seats available)
Why have you decided to run for this position?
“This is my third time running for BUSAC and I feel like I’ve done a lot of good work. Once you’re in the position of helping students, it’s really hard to get out of it. I want to use the student-at-large position to be able to reach out to all students and to make sure that we have a very open, responsible and transparent government. I will be a representative who is open to any suggestion from all students.”
Why do you believe you should be elected as a student-at-large?
“Serving on BUSAC the past two years and being a Senator this year, I’ve been very committed to the cause. At council meetings, I’m someone who always say what the students want, and will ask questions that maybe I don’t necessarily want to ask, but the students do. I’ve also served on several committees including external affairs and I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the student government the past two years. I should be re-elected because I’ve always given my best effort to serve student needs and I don’t want to stop doing that, so I’d love another opportunity to do it again.”
How do you plan to represent the full diversity of students and programs on campus?
“BUSAC needs to have a way that councillors can reach out to the entire constituency, like having a breakfast with the BUSAC councillors. We need to be good communicators, be present on campus, have better communication and understand advocacy and the different groups on campus. I will be an active and present voice on campus and will do more promotion and more service for the university. Through this, we will be able to see the full diversity of students from all faculties.”
To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?
“BUSAC is the students’ administrative council, which is your student government which is your voice. We oversee the student union and make sure that it implements policies that are in the best interest of students, and that the money BUSU spends is in the best interest of students as well.”
