Here are blurbs for candidates running for the BPA Exec team for the 2017/2018 Year!
Charlotte Wilson for VP Finance
Hello Brescia Students! My name is Charlotte Wilson, I am going into my second year of business at Brescia and minoring in Psychology. I was a first year representative on the BPA for the 2016-2017 school year and would love to further my involvement on the BPA as the new VP Finance. I am knowledgeable of the BPA’s current processes and will bring new ideas on how to improve any recurring events from last year. As the BPA’s new VP Finance I will keep detailed and accurate records regarding the BPA’s financial situation and update my fellow BPA executives on a regular basis. I will also maintain regular contact with the BUCSC to ensure that all of this financial information is up to date. Most importantly, I will assist my fellow BPA executives in running exciting events for Brescia’s psychology students.
Afnan Almusned for VP Communications
My name is Afnan Almusned, and will be going to my third year of psychology in the fall. I held the position of VP External events and affairs for 2016-2017. I really enjoyed being part of the team, and would love to be part of it again. Being involved in the BPA was an extremely rewarding experience; I loved being part of the organizing committee for the annual graduate school talk, as well shine the light. If given the privilege of being reelected I want to help the BPA grow, and be larger than ever. Working with the BPA over the past year has really given me the chance to realize some of the strengths and weaknesses, which would be very important to better the club in the future. I look forward to playing an active role in the BPA next year and working with my fellow psychology-driven executive team to further improve the BPA and propel it to the top of Brescia’s clubs!
Rania Ghazal for 3rd Year Rep
Hello, my name is Rania Ghazal and I’m currently wrapping up my second year in the honors of psychology program. I would like to run for third-year representative because Brescia has provided me with so much, and there is nothing I would like more than to return the favor. As a woman, having the opportunity to peruse education is a privilege that I am grateful for every single day. I have been handed the opportunity to create something of myself and I do not want to waste it. In my process of becoming the greatest version of myself, I want to influence the other women in this college to the same. If I were to be elected, I would give everything in me to make them feel more comfortable, beautiful, and empowered. I would give everything in me to help them see all the potential they have to become extraordinary. Running for a position in a women’s college in particular means so much to me, I would be honored to represent third year students.
Savannah Hayes for 3rd Year Rep
Hello there! I’m Savannah Hayes, a second-going-into-third year psychology student at Brescia. I would very much like to apply for the available position of third-year representative for my fellow psychology students. During my time at Brescia, I have been on the lookout for a group that I feel confident in wholeheartedly supporting and participating in; I feel like the BPA is the perfect fit for me! Psychology is in my heart and soul and I imagine your executive team agrees! By representing third-year students, I will be inclined to reach out to my peers and become a resource. I’d also love to volunteer my time for the BPA and contribute to promoting, running, and communicating about your events throughout next year. While I’ve been a psychology student attending Brescia, I have always wanted to initiate study groups with my peers. As a representative, I will be better able to facilitate, encourage, and tutor various groups like these for third-year students as well as students earlier on in their exploration of psychology.
Vanessa Cunha for VP Internal Events
Hi, my name is Vanessa Cunha and this year I was the second year representative for the Brescia Psychology Association. I have learned many valuable skills from this position however i would like to further them by stepping up the ladder.
I want my communication skills to outshine and truly aid me in the position of VP Internal Events. I have great connections with the affiliates as I have already created an event this year with their executive team and the event was a success. As VP internal events, I would branch out events or ideas to affiliates, students, etc. if they want to join as well as communicate with others and see if the BPA can collaborate.
The Brescia Psychology Association hosts many wonderful events and I want to see more individuals attending these events. As VP internal events it would be my pleasure to branch out to others, work with other communities, and bring individuals together to have not only successful but memorable events.
Lina Saadeddin for President
My name is Lina Saadeddin, going into my Fourth Year of Honours Specialization in Psychology at Brescia and I would love to be BPA’s president for the year of 2017-2018. Having worked in the BPA in the past year as VP Internal events and being an active member in my first year, I am aware of the laws, in & outs of the club. I am confident that by being president, I can provide events that will involve more psychology students in Brescia, as well as visiting classes to have votes for different events to host and what will interest the Brescia community. As well, collaborating with the psychology associations at Kings, Huron and Western to create a Western-Wide Psychology Gala for the Spring of 2018, where psychology students & other disciplines will be welcome to join and celebrate their accomplishments. I hope I can be trusted with this position to add joy to your student year and create opportunities & memories that will last forever.
