In a large and successful school like the UBC Sauder School of Business, it is essential to ensure that all students’ voices are heard. This panel allows the school to truly understand its students coming from all different backgrounds, and offers a unique opportunity for students and administrators to work together to create a better academic experience for everyone. I believe that it is important for everybody to have a quality education and to gain a positive, well-rounded learning experience in university, which is why I am so passionate about being a part of this panel. In the future, I see UBC Sauder growing into an even more comprehensive business school with a vibrant and welcoming student body, increasing its world leadership and prestige.

I joined this diverse group of outstanding business leaders to be able to create a greater environment within UBC Sauder. With the opinions and perspectives of a large group of individuals that all come together from different backgrounds, I believe that all of our ideas can spark change. The school itself offers a vast amount of opportunities and in the future, I want to be able to connect more students to those opportunities so that they may capitalize upon them. I also want to promote mental health awareness for students and bring greater awareness to UBC Sauder subsidized programs that support students in pursuit of personal, professional and academic development.
