Hi Everyone, I’m Sierra Joseph and I am so excited to be running for VP Academics! I am a third-year student in SASAH and Women’s Studies. I have been involved with AHSC for two years, as philanthropy commissioner and as the Women’s Studies DR. I know my experience in the Events and Academics portfolios will allow me to be an effective VP to lead informative programming and positive change! Please feel free to reach out!
Hi, I’m Sophia Belyk, and I’m excited to be running for VP Communications! I’m a third-year student in SASAH, MIT, and French, and a seasoned council veteran, having been website design commissioner this year and graphics commissioner last year. Having worked under the VP Communications for two years, I feel well-equipped to steer this portfolio towards success, working closely with pubs, events, and more to make a high-visibility and high-impact council for all A&H students!
Hey! My names Lily and I’m a Classics major running for VP Events. I decided to run for VP Events because as someone who’s new to all these experiences and struggling to adjust, council and its events never failed to make me feel included and part of a community. As VP Events, I’ll strive to make all incoming and current A&H students feel welcome through fun new events and open lines of communication.
I am Bilquees Hafeez but some of you may know me as Billie! I am a 3rd year arts & humanities student in Art History & Museum Studies, and Classics, and I am running to be your incoming AHSC VP of Events. Our community of arts & humanities students is constantly evolving as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — let's foster that connection to help you make the most of your student experience.
My campaign, and goal as VP Finance is to have a student body and council who understand where their money comes from, how it is being spent, and that both parties are happy with the results.
My name is Audrey Bang, and I’m a first year student completing a degree in Classical Studies and the School for Advanced Studies in the Arts and Humanities. As a candidate for the Classics Department Representative, I want to improve communication, collaboration, and academic and personal support for other students like myself. I feel so honoured to run for this position! Please contact me if you have any questions about myself or my platform.
ENGLISH & WRITING STUDIES DR
Hey, A&H! I’m super excited to have the privilege and opportunity to run for DR of English & Writing Studies! I hope that I’m able to share my pride for my department and my desire for development with you. My four platforms are Program Visibility, Connections / Networking, Equitable Advocating & Direct Communication. Check out my platform website to find out what that means!
As French DR, my three main goals would be to increase communication between council and first year French classes (namely 1910 and 1999), increase the promotion of French events and clubs through council resources, and be approachable and recognizable for students in the department through the use of social media and face-to-face consultations. As the current AVP Academics, I feel as though I already have a strong understanding of this portfolio.
LINGUISTICS, MODERN LANGUAGES & LITERATURE DR
I am thrilled to announce that I’m running as your Linguistics & Modern Languages DR! From my consultations so far, I have learned so much about what students would like me to advocate for, and I would love to talk to you about your thoughts too! My main goals include advocacy & communication, social & professional development, and mental health & wellness. Please don’t hesitate to reach out about my platform (or even if you just want to talk)!
VISUAL ARTS DR
Hi all arts students! I’m running for next years Visual Arts department representative and would love to represent your voice on council. I’m currently a second year student in Art History and Museum studies and dedicate much of my time to art initiatives on campus. I’ve seen first hand how vibrant and enthusiastic visual arts can be here at western and would be grateful to represent such an incredible group of people on council.
