Hey! My name is Vicky and I’m your most ironic VPA nominee! My grades say no but my heart says yes, so let me tell you why you should vote V for VPA:
I have two years of MES experience under my belt, having been last year’s first year computer science rep and this year’s computer science rep, so I already know the ropes fairly well in terms of what the MES is capable of and what reasonable change within the faculty looks like.
Additionally, having spent last semester abroad, I know that, for some, virtual uni ain’t it. Time differences, the feeling of isolation… not a vibe. As VPA I would firmly stand for the priority of mental health of engineering students and the fair accommodations of those in varying time zones. If you’ve ever left a Teams lecture feeling like your presence doesn’t matter, or have had to write a midterm at 1am, you will appreciate this part of my campaign.
Finally, I am passionate about making sure all engineering programs are treated equally. I know it can feel like that iron ring is the only thing that makes you a member of the community, but on the MES we know that's not true! Everyone in our Fireball Fam works incredibly hard and I would love to have the platform of VPA to advocate for ‘the little guys’ and show off the skills each program brings to the table while still honoring our ring-getters.
Thanks for reading! And remember: the V in Vicky stands for VPA ;)
