Amalia Banava – Candidate Profile



Ballot blurb: 

Hi Badgers!!

I’m a fourth year student majoring in Political Science as well as business. Over the last 3 years, I’ve been serving as your undergraduate senator, BUSAC Councillor, Director in BUSU’s Board of Directors, and member of various committees. My main focus has always been speaking with students to find out what they want and then expressing those needs to Brock’s decision makers. We’ll get back to that, for now let’s talk about the future.

Would you enjoy seeing longer Tim Horton’s Hours on campus? An increase in 1-on-1 mental health support on campus? A relaxation room? Study space increased on campus by allowing you to book seminar rooms? What about increased cost-free access to your textbooks?

If you said yes to any of these, you’ll be happy to know that I have an approved plan to make these a reality during the next school year. If I haven’t cover your needs, we need to talk ASAP. I’ve spent three years proudly entrusted to bring change and represent you, I’d love the chance to do this as your VPFA. Representing you, my fellow students has allowed me to grow into the kind of person I want to be, someone who has no fear when it comes to standing up for my what I believe in. Now I have the relationships and knowledge necessary to make change, if you’ll let me.
