Running For:

VP Student Life

Hi there! I’m running to be YOUR next VP Student Life for the 2021-22 school year :) This is my second year at McMaster and am proud to be a part of the Software and Biomedical Engineering mini family under the #FireballFamily umbrella. I want to be a part of making your experience at MacEng exceptionally fantaBUUULOUS.

When it comes down to putting in the hard work, I’m the person you want in your corner. This year, I have been the co-coordinator of the MES Wellness committee, a HMI/UX member of the McMaster EcoCar team and have been a welcome week rep in 2020.

I know that the average engineering student is a mosaic of many things in their lives and that is what I want my platform to reflect.

Health: for Back2School and Frost Week, I will organise workshops related to habit building and healthy coping mechanisms that students can apply throughout their lives.

Family: an MES-wide discord server to connect you to your MacEng friends and family, to virtually meet new people

Improvement: I plan to initiate 2-way feedback sessions, being active where students are active (Twitter, anyone?) but most importantly reevaluating our value as a counsel and how we can change the way we function to be better of use to you.

I hope I earn the privilege of representing you, no matter the outcome I’ll always be rooting for you.

Lots of Love, Samia
