For the 2022-23 school year, our student trustees are:
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!
