This is also my second time running for DCSA, having been voted into the Association when I first attended Durham College in 1996-1997. That year I was awarded the COCA/Campus Canada ‘Programmer of the Year’ for all Canadian colleges.
I am confident that the skills I have developed over the years will enable me to work collaboratively with my fellow directors, as well as students and faculty, in order to achieve our goals and make a positive impact on our campus.
If elected, I will prioritize the following issues:
Firstly, I would like to work on returning the Student Centre to being a more important destination for all students. It’s your building. And I’d like to help make it a place you want to visit on a more regular basis.
Secondly, I will advocate for the development of new programs and initiatives that cater to the unique needs of business students. This includes things like career fairs, guest speakers, and workshops that focus on key skills such as financial literacy, marketing, and entrepreneurship.
Finally, I will work to ensure that the Faculty of Business has a strong and visible presence on campus. This will involve collaborating with other student associations and campus organizations to host events and initiatives that promote the Faculty of Business.
I am excited to announce my candidacy for the position of Director of the Business Faculty at the DCSA. As a student at Durham College, I have come to understand the importance of student representation and advocacy, and I am ready to stand up for what is right.
My values of justice, inclusivity, respect, integrity, and accountability are the pillars of my character, and I believe that they align with the expectations of this esteemed association. I strongly believe that every student deserves an equal opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive in their academic journey. Therefore, my primary goal is to promote a learning environment that is inclusive, accessible, and welcoming to all students.
As an excellent student myself, I understand the challenges and demands that students face every day. Therefore, I am committed to advocating for the interests and concerns of the students of the Business Faculty.
Furthermore, I believe that integrity and accountability are essential to the success of any organization, and the DCSA is no exception. I vow to be transparent, ethical, and responsible in all my duties as the Director of the Business Faculty.
In conclusion, I am committed to serving the students of the Business Faculty with passion, dedication, and enthusiasm. I believe that my communication skills, leadership qualities, and strong values make me the ideal candidate for this position. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you all to make our faculty the best it can be.
Thank you for your consideration.

As an introvert and a neurodivergent person, I know how it feels to not have my voice be heard. I have seen the people around me be dismissed and ignored when they ask for support. That is why I will make a special effort to advocate for the neurodivergent community at Durham College, in order to ensure that we are all receiving the supports that we need to all be successful here and after we graduate.
I am a passionate and driven person who is a strong communicator, and as Director, I will use my communication skills to fight for you and make sure your voice is heard too. So, don’t forget to vote for me from April 4th-6th!
