Your 2018-2019 Student Executives are:

Timothy David

President

Office Hours
Fridays: 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm


Tim David was born in the humble city of San Fernando, Philippines in the middle of the 1994 Pacific typhoon season. Immigrated in 1998; he was frightened of heights and rollercoasters, loved lightning and rain storms, Saturday morning cartoons, and playing Crash Bandicoot on PlayStation.

At 20, he was hired by Scotiabank – a bank who took him in by a mere gut feeling, regardless of his lack of post-secondary education. Tim enjoyed his time there, because he ate what he killed and sowed what he reaped. In two years, he was serving the bank as their youngest leader and was rewarded with Scotiabank’s most prestigious award the “Best of The Best.” His drive, motivation and “Why” are all derived from his continuous hunger to improve himself and those along the way. His strongest belief is that excellence is never an accident, it’s a choice.

Henry Vo

V.P. Finance & Administration

Office Hours
Tuesdays
: 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm


Hi! My name is Henry Vo, I’m currently taking Financial Planning, heading into my second year. If you’ve ever encountered the loudest group in the library, you’ve probably seen me! I like to consider myself a hard worker, but I can’t forget to have fun and make things amusing.

This past year at BCIT has solidified the realization of what I want to do as a career. I’ve dipped my toes into some outrageous jobs such as construction and bussing tables. But working at TD Bank helped be understand more about the world of finance. After opting out of engineering I decided to take financial planning. This past year at BCIT has really taught me to love what I do. The finance world is intriguing and complicated but this won’t stop me from learning as much as I can. I’m excited to be a part of this new team and I can’t wait for the fun and exciting things to come.

Feel comfortable to come to my office hours if you have any questions or would just like to chat.

Christian Colquhoun

V.P. External Affairs

Office Hours
Monday’s: 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm


I am originally from Vancouver, but attended high school in Victoria and university in Ottawa before coming home. I love to hike, camp, and surf whenever I have a short break from my courses and duties at BCIT, which is about 1 day a month. My future goal, and the reason I am at BCIT, is to own and operate successful business both locally and internationally.

Jordan Holden

V.P. Campus Life

Office Hours
Tuesday’s: 2:30 pm – 3:20 pm


Hey everyone! I’m going into my second year of the Marketing Management program and am planning to continue into the BBA program afterwards. I previously studied behavioural neuroscience at SFU where I served on their student association and ran my own research study on whether humans are energetically selfish or altruistic. I am thrilled to be representing you and many other students over the next year to ensure your experience at BCIT is as memorable, fun and smooth-sailing as possible.

 Besides my role with the SA and being a Residence Advisor for BCIT Housing, you’ll also find me slaying witty responses on Lululemon’s social media channels. Advocacy, health and wellness and the environment are some of my biggest passions­, and on my days off I’ll almost always be at the beach, practicing yoga, or hiking a mountain.

I want to promote sustainable practices and believe that every person can make a difference. I aim to do my BBA in Japan next year and can’t wait to rock climb in China this winter.

Chair School of Health Sciences

Office Hours
Tuesdays:  1:30 pm – 2:30 pm


Hi everyone! My name is Sasha and I am in my third year of Nursing. I am intrigued by the intersection between science, health, and the human condition. I have a previous degree in Biomedical Physiology from SFU, where I was involved in Dance Marathon, a fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital, and Let’s Talk Science, a volunteer organization that brought science experiments and lessons to classrooms of all grades. At BCIT, I have been involved with Jack.org, a youth-led initiative that seeks to transform the way we approach mental health. Outside of school, I enjoy the arts, most of all creative writing and painting.

In my role as Chair of Health Sciences, I hope to empower others to achieve their full potentials and make positive changes in their respective communities. I am passionate about helping others and learning more about what ambitions and aspirations drive my peers. I look forward to connecting with students from all of the diverse programs within the health sciences.
