Hi everyone, my name is Emily. Two things I really enjoy are noodles and pets with people names (like the name Bruce for a chihuahua). I’ve been a part of the residence community for two years now and I’m excited to explore the role of student union’s residence representative in the upcoming year. I look forward to voicing the concerns of our residence students at UNB and continuing to create special projects that benefit the well-being and enjoyment that these students experience. I hope to be an accessible and approachable figure on campus and encourage anyone to share their thoughts about improving our residences.
I am in my third year of the Business Administration program and I am doing my Honours in Accounting and a Concentration in Finance. I started my degree at Sunway University in Malaysia and am thrilled to finish at UNB. There’s more to the university experience than the classroom. Don’t limit your learning to the classroom. Go above and beyond what is asked of you! Therefore, I strongly encourage my fellow students to get involved in various activities during their journey at UNB. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns or suggestions. I am always available in person or via e-mail.
As the accessibility councilor, I will advocate for all things related to increasing accessibility for those who need it at UNB as well as look out for student’s best interests as I see fit. I am originally from Unionville, Ontario but am proud to call Fredericton my home now. I am an avid mountain biker and snowboarder, and approachable to any new ideas pertaining to my role in the student union. I am new to the UNB student union this year but I have been a student here for three years and know how things work, and I will make a substantial impact with the help of the student body on my side. I will always be transparent in my beliefs and intentions with the student union. If you would like to meet and discuss any ideas, I am often found at the SUB studying say hello, and tell me some of your wonderful ideas.
Hey UNB, my name is Jackie Toner and I am this years 2017/2018 LGBT+ Councillor. Last year I had the pleasure of holding this position as well as being an executive member of Qmunity UNB, an active and exciting group on campus that works to unite, support and provide visibility to the UNB LGBTQ+ community. Over my time with the UNBSU I have worked to break down barriers and provide more resources for LGBTQ+ students and encourage inclusion on campus, along with providing events that support students such as the 1st ever Transgender Day of Remembrance that happened here at UNB in November 2016, while also being apart of countless conversations working towards future services at UNB for LGBTQ+ students. When I am not around the council table you can find me at the Currie Center teaching a cycling class, volunteering or doing research for my honours. This year I will be also be back in the residence community as a Proctor in Neill house after being a proctor in Joy Kidd for the past 2 years. For the 2017/2018 year I hope to continue advocating for the LGBTQ+ community with different projects going on throughout the year, if you have an suggestions or want to let me know what you want to see happen here on campus please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Since moving here for school, I have been an active member of the Fredericton and UNB community. I enjoy volunteering for the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival every year and the Fredericton Community kitchen when I can. I have also volunteered in a number of activities to improve student life, such as helping with the community gardens initiative and the student union’s Textbroke campaign. I have also been involved in migrant justice work through No One Is Illegal – Fredericton and helped to organize a Fredericton contingent of the November 2nd Day of Action to abolish tuition. I hope to bring the same energy have to other forms of advocacy to my work at the student union and expand ways for students to engage and feel included in the decisions that affect and matter to them, as well as expand the Union’s work to combat oppression and exclusion on campus in its various forms. When I get some free time, you can probably catch me at the Cellar or one of the many cafes around Fredericton.
Originally from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, I am a Renaissance College student at UNB, taking a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies. I am passionate about environmentalism and social change. I am an active member of UNB’s Campus Food Strategy Group, and can be spotted at the Fredericton Farmers Market every Saturday morning. I love yoga, exploring outdoors, and both reading and writing poetry. I am very excited to be representing women’s issues and to be working with the Student Union this year! If you catch me on campus, do not hesitate to speak to me about any concerns you may have!
riginally from Corner Brook, Newfoundland, I am a first year student at UNB studying a Bachelor of Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Leadership with a minor in sociology. I am very passionate about social justice and having a positive impact on my community. I love studying theatre and I have been involved in many productions around Fredericton. I am an active member in the Jack.Org community, which works to advocate towards improving mental health resources. When I am not studying societal issues and smashing the stigma, you can catch me laughing with friends, hiking, and binge-watching multiple series on Netflix. I cannot wait to represent the student body of UNB as Inclusion Representative on the UNBSU for the 2017/18 academic year. If there are any issues you would like to bring up, please reach out to me, I would love to chat about issues that are affecting students.
My name is Jonathan Lazarev. I am currently completing my bachelor of science in Biology-Chemistry. In my spare time (which I seem to find a lot due to procrastinating) I like to play basketball, and chess. Aside from that, I pretty much live at the Student Union Building and the Science Library concourse. I love to talk, so if you see me around, holler at me!
