Kenzy Soror

ROLE: Student Trustee

SCHOOL: Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute

I am a Grade 12 International Baccalaureate (IB) student at Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute (CHCI) who strives for inclusion and seeks opportunities where I believe I can make a difference!

I have always been a team player on and outside the court. Since being in high school, I have enjoyed being a member of CHCI’s Cross Country, Swimming, Volleyball, Track & Field, Band, Orchestra, and Jazz Band. Outside of school, I have been a member of the Tigers Volleyball Club since 2018! Last year, despite pandemic challenges, I was involved in leadership and advocacy initiatives, a CHCI Student Senator, a member of KW Leos, CHCI Student Activities Council, and a CPF volunteer! I was elected VP of Corporate Social Responsibility at the JA Company YOÜ, and was also the founder and leader of UW’s Technovation team “See Sharp.”

As Socrates said, “speak so that I can see you,” and I believe that no one can speak without having a voice, which is why I have looked for places where voices could be heard and where voices could make a change.

My participation in various clubs, sports and organizations across a variety of interests has shaped me into the versatile, change-pursuing person I am today. I believe that Student Trustee is the next step I can take towards ensuring that all students of all backgrounds, thoughts, and needs in the Waterloo Region District School Board are given the opportunity to have a voice, speak, and in turn, be seen!

SCHOOL: Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute

I am a Grade 12 Partial IB student from Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute who highly values inclusivity and diversity both inside and outside of a school environment.

From a young age, I have always been interested in leadership. When I was in grade 7, I joined the Air Cadet Program, which taught me how to lead and communicate effectively. Presently, I am the Chief of 80 KW Spitfire Squadron, and I am on the Provincial Senior Cadet Council to aid in improving the program and making a difference for the better. My leadership skills have been polished throughout the years and have made me the outgoing and confident woman I am now.

At school, I am the Senior Executive of the Model United Nations club, as well as my school newspaper, The Globe and Gael. I am also in Varsity Jazz band, Senior band, Glee club, and CHCI’s Wrestling team. In grade 10 and 11, I was a part of Cameron’s Student Activities Council. In my spare time, I like flying airplanes, listening to music, and playing with my dog!

My goal as Student Trustee is to encourage and help WRDSB students speak up about issues in their community, and work together to resolve them. I will strive to create a positive education community, where race, gender, sexuality, and mental and physical abilities are not barriers for individuals!
