Matthew Chan (He/Him)
Hi, I'm Matt, I'm a first year BioMed student and I need YOUR support to be first year rep. As a first year rep I'll be organizing events in conjunction with the VP social to create and plan events for Bethune students. Vote for me to be the voice of all you first years, and for fun exiting events. In short, things are going to get LIT 🎉🎉🎉.
Martina DiClemente (She/Her)
Hi, I’m Martina. I’m a first year biomed student. I would love to be a first year Bethune College rep because I know how hard it is to make friends at a new school and want to make the change as easy as possible for the first years. I absolutely loved my frosh and look forward to making orientation week just as special and fun as mine was for all the new froshies.
Harleen Dulay (She/Her)
Hi everyone! My name is Harleen and I am one of the candidates for first year representative on the BCC! I have always loved being involved in extracurriculars, especially where there is teamwork in order to create something magical for everyone! My program is biomedical science, but in my free time you can catch me listening to music, baking, playing basketball, or going to events York hosts that catch my eye! A fun fact about me is I took a gap year and I was a flight attendant at Air Canada Rouge for the year! If you have any specific questions for me, I would be more than happy to answer them through Instagram (@harleeendulay) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) :)
Aseel Mohammed (She/Her)
Hey y'all! My name's Aseel and I'm a first year computer science student. Other than being a full time drama queen, I love swimming, listening to afrobeats and playing card games. I would love to become a first year representative to get all first year students involved and accustomed to the new exciting Bethune community.
Lloyd Musa (He/Him)
Becoming a first-year representative at our university means a lot to me, as it's a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact on our campus community while shaping my own college experience. As a first-year rep, I'll serve as a bridge between my fellow new students and the university administration, advocating for their needs, concerns, and ideas. This role not only allows me to gain valuable leadership and organizational skills but also fosters personal growth and development. I'll have the chance to contribute to the enhancement of student life, organize events, and promote a sense of belonging among my peers. Being a first-year rep is not only a great way to make new friends and network but also to leave a positive legacy at our university for future generations of students. It's a role that empowers me to be the change I wish to see, all while building a strong foundation for my own academic and personal journey. Thank you.
Mehwish Saiyed (She/Her)
Hi Everyone, my name is Mehwish, I’m a first year student at Lassonde School of Engineering from Vancouver. I’d like to see a campus that represents us, and by us I mean THE STUDENTS! I would love to have the honour of being elected as a first year Representative at YORKU. I was a President of the Model UN at my highschool, for 2 years. This role has taught me the essential skill of open communication, interpersonal skills and stepping up to the mark of leadership. As well as this, it has taught me to fight for what I believe in as well as the power of being a collective. I strongly believe my extensive experience through volunteering and athletics truly shaped who I am today and will continue to help with my success. Investing my efforts into volunteer work helped me to learn and unite people from diverse backgrounds to work toward a collective goal. It has broadened my perspective towards the world and expanded my social flexibility. If selected, I will empower students who feel voiceless, and use student representation to express student feelings and opinions. So far, I have loved the experience and lifestyle here. I want to take part to create more new exciting events throughout the year, to gather everyone together and see students getting involved and enjoying themselves:) I will continue to dedicate efforts into improving your time at university, because this college council is about every single one of YOU. I am looking forward to meeting people with different cultural values and putting my best foot forward towards incorporating all of them in this diverse community of future undergrads. If you’ve ever come up to me and voiced your concerns, you know that I am approachable, ready to listen, and genuinely prepared to help. I am passionate about making these years here as enriching as possible for you. Vote ONE for Mehwish – a voice representing YOU.
