My name is Chiara, and I study Business Administration at Acadia. This year, I had the honour of being the elected Professional Studies Senator of the ASU and now being chosen as the SRC Member of the Year. In a year manifested by changes, Covid, the strike, and the war in Ukraine, the ASU has always been at the students’ backs, advocating, launching events, and valuing students. On the student council, I was the channel between the Professional Studies students and the ASU. I formed a committee of club leaders and following the interests of the clubs I planned entertaining student vlogs and app recommendation projects. On May 1st I will take a step further in the mission of advocating and representing students- ASU VP of Student Life, I am coming.
