Involvement

Student Trustee

As a student trustee, I represented student voice and made changes for the sake of youth in education. I am proud to say that I felt successful in this position. I made a long-lasting impact and networked with many changemakers, activists, and leaders with whom I continue to connect to this day. During my term, I presented 2 policies, 4 motions, and 3 presentations during my time at the board. Four of these motions passed, and two of the policies have been discussed and looked at by the board’s policy committee. These were all rooted in various themes of equity & inclusion, including ways to better support our Board's racialized students, increasing support for the 2SLGBTQ+ community in our board such as the raising of the Pride Flag, changes to include land acknowledgements in our opening and closing exercises, promoting the Native Studies that exist in the curriculum, and menstrual equity.
