I’m Shelby and I am a second-year accounting student. For the past two years, I have been a Councillor with the Student Association and am currently a Peer Champion with Indigenous Initiatives. I am excited to run for the VP of Equity & Sustainability position because I’m very passionate about making a positive change at BCIT, and I would love the opportunity to help strengthen diversity, equity, and inclusion at BCIT by working with the SA to develop and implement a long-term DEI strategy. I am also currently an active member of the Equity & Sustainability Committee. I’ve worked closely with the current VP to plan and moderate a successful student-lead panel on Gender Equality in the classroom to bring attention to an important issue impacting the education of our students. If elected, I will work to get external funding to provide menstruation products to all students and continue work on implementing a fall reading break. I will also work with BCIT to improve available student services by improving communication and accessibility to students in need. I believe in standing up for what’s right and will do my best to ensure all voices are heard.
