Isabella Isabage

Isabella Isabage

Hello, My name is Isabella .E. Isabage and I am your candidate for VP Equity on the Arts and Humanities Student Council. I’ve learned to never lose a winnable fight and the fight for Equity, inclusion, and diversification is one I intend to lead the AHSC to victory. I’m a first-year student pursuing a double major in English and SASAH with a minor in Transitional justice and post-conflict resolution.

Tiffany Lin

As my second year draws to a close, my interest in advocacy work only grows. I hope to bring my previous experience in advocacy and EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) into the role of VP Equity by creating meaningful and intentional relationships between AHSC departments as well as with the general Arts and Humanities community to build more equitable, and thus safer, spaces through education-focused initiatives that foster growth.

I’m so excited to announce my candidacy for the VP Academics position on AHSC! As a 3rd-year student in Western’s Gender Studies program, I am excited to (potentially) tackle the many barriers that exist for students in academic fields. This includes: facilitating diverse and inclusive spaces, consistently offering an open (and accessible) channel of communication, and ensuring that students are equipped with the necessary resources to flourish in our faculty!

Isabella DiMenna

Hi everyone! I am a first-year SASAH & political science student and I am running to be the next AHSC VP Academics. I am punctual, accountable, and love learning more than anything. In this role, I want to focus on discussions around decolonizing our institution, reducing the stigma surrounding receiving help for mental health or academic counseling, and bridging the communication gap between the AHSC and students.

Joyce Leung

As a 2nd-year linguistics and SASAH student, I believe that a continued learning experience, both in and outside of the classroom plays an important role in enhancing students' personal growth. I hope to increase engagement levels between council, faculty, and students from different academic backgrounds, as well as streamlining the academic support system for accessibility. Through these plans, I hope to make advocacy and academics a genuinely meaningful experience!

Hi Everyone!  My name is Darcy McVicar and I am working on my second round trip at Western (BA '90).  I am gracious to be able to run for the Visual Arts representative for the 2021-22 academic year.  The Western Arts program (including Art History and Museum Studies) has a HUGE array of opportunities for the students during the entire academic year.  My main platform goal is to be able to deliver all the events and opportunities available to us all, in a timely, and accurate manner.  If elected, I will make myself readily available to the faculty and students.  Things have changed a lot since I first enrolled at Western in 1986, there is even something called the "Internet" and "e-mail" now!  I wish my fellow candidates the best of luck!  Have a great day!
