This past year I held the position of social representative on the SRC. I have also had an active role in the Student Life and Service Committee and the Social Committee in planning events and bringing up student issues to council. I have spent four years as a member of UNBSJ Christian Fellowship group and two years as an executive member. I have volunteered with Promise Partnership and Best Buddies. I have also volunteered with both Orientations on campus for both international and first year students. I want to be the voice for students at UNBSJ and bring new experience to create a more active student body. I will deal with various student issues including locker management on campus. I believe I can make a difference to our school. CS Lewis, most famous for the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a story I enjoyed as a child. I associate with his writing especially the character Lucy who was never afraid to believe.

Emily is in her third-year of Political Science. She loves studying and academics which follows into her research work. She's an avid plant mom and a stern black coffee drinker. When she's not working or doing school work, you can find her listening to 70s music on vinyl and watching Parks and Recreation.
