UBC Sauder has a responsibility to all students to respect them and push them to their very best self, and I think that we are remiss in getting students involved who do not fit the Type A model of the Business Student. While it is easy to take one’s foot off the gas and think, “it’s good enough”, I am invested in challenging that philosophy as part of the Dean’s Council. It is time we see where the atypical UBC Sauder student sees themselves among their peers and work to increase the rigor of education by making all students crave holistic participation in our faculty, which includes so much more than just academics. I hope to leave UBC Sauder prouder and more inclusive with the legacy left behind on this council. I want UBC Sauder to become even more so the name success-stories are associated with. So before you say that this is impossible, remember how you felt when you got the news you got in, remember that excitement and that pride. Impossible literally says, “I’m possible”. It is ours for the taking, and this council is eager to propel all Sauderites forward.
