SCHOOL: Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute

I currently attend Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute for my senior year in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. I am an active member of Cameron’s Music Ensembles, Debate Team, Student Council and Science Club. This year, I’ve had the joy of becoming an ambassador for the Federation of Canadian Secondary Students – Fédération des Élèves du Secondaire au Canada! I sincerely care about the community, and I’m honoured to serve as one of the Student Trustees for the Waterloo Region District School Board. I believe that through my experiences within Cameron Heights and the community I have acquired the skills and experiences that will allow me to represent the students of our school board.

Our school board focuses on the student’s well-being, and I am looking forward to serving the students while empowering the student body. I am incredibly looking forward to the Student Senate! Through the Senate, I will work with the students from other schools as we represent the voices of the study body. My goal is to expand the Student Senate so that it hears from all voices across the school board and to establish a diverse group of students. The Waterloo Region District School Board provides an inclusive, caring and passionate environment for their students. I see it as my responsibility to represent the student body in a way in which the students feel valued. I will do everything I can to make the students feel heard within their school board and act upon their concerns and opinions. I’m looking forward to a wonderful year.

SCHOOL: Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute

I am a partial student of the International Baccalaureate Programme at Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute for my senior year. I strive to be as involved as possible, and I have done so by being a part of the Student Activities Council, Athletic Council, Link Crew, and Science Club. I have personally tried to make a change in my school by founding and being president of Ted Ed Cameron Heights. I have represented both Cameron Heights and Waterloo Soccer Club at the provincial level with soccer, and have gone lengths in other extracurriculars such as Track and Field. Nationally, I am an ambassador for the Federation of Canadian Secondary Students – Fédération des Élèves du Secondaire au Canada. I work my hardest to be a well rounded student, by balancing academic excellence, involvement in the community and athletic performance.

Being a part of Student Senate, I love presenting my opinion, discussing topics and formulating ways to make positive change for the student body at the regional level. While being at the Canadian Student Leadership Conference as a Spirit Leader, I was able to see the power students truly have to alter policies and change culture, so I look to replicate that locally. This lead to me to pursue the position of Student Trustee, looking for the the opportunity to create a greater impact. I look to use the best of my abilities to further my aspirations of positive change and finish this year strong for all the students across the Waterloo Region District School Board.
