The last two years have been very important for the UWSA with many positive changes and development, and I am humbled to be part of the team that work so dedicatedly to support our student body during these years. However, these years were also full of challenges for the UWSA as well as for our student body as we continued learning and working amid a global pandemic and had to navigate through the impacts of the pandemic and the post-pandemic changes. After serving our student body for nearly two years, when I am almost at the end of my 2-year term, I have made a difficult decision to resign from my role as the Vice-President of Student Affairs.

I always loved helping our students in whichever capacity I could. I led multiple clubs between 2019 and 2022 and served as the director of student life at the UWSA during 2019-20 as a volunteer. And so, it was a privilege to be elected to the role of Vice-President of Student Affairs and be able to help our students in an even greater capacity. It was not an easy decision to leave my role as I would very much love to continue helping the University of Winnipeg students through my work.

However, it has become very important for me right now to take some time off to take care of my health and well-being, and so I have decided to resign from my role as the VPSA.

With my role soon being filled by the newly elected Vice-President of Student Affairs, I believe there will not be any lacking in terms of student support.

I want to thank the students at the University of Winnipeg again for electing me to serve them and I hope the little positive changes that I was able to make have helped our student body and would continue to do so in the coming days.

I also want to thank my colleagues at the UWSA – the executives, the board members, and all members of the staff team – for sharing the passion and enthusiasm of helping our students and supporting my work throughout my term which allowed me to successfully serve our student body.
