What I'm Spending Way Too Much Time Doing During Self-Isolation

Daydreaming about how safe I’d be if I was on a sailboat in the middle of the sea instead of an apartment building downtown.

Top Bucket List Item

Sail the seas! I’d settle for the Western Mediterranean and the Caribbean, but the Aegean is up there.

Fun Fact About Me

They said I couldn’t tell the story about the pineapple, so: If someone’s been made fun of for liking it, you can assume I’m into it! I’ve played WoW on and off for 14 years, ran a D&D campaign for 3 years, and most recently went from Bronze V to Platinum II in Magic: The Gathering Arena in one day. I’m just kind of a big pop culture sponge!

My Role in 3 Sentences

Every interaction, whether it be a conference, meeting, or video call, is an opportunity. Advocacy is using those opportunities to further the interests of your members, which is students in my case. I advocate to external organizations, as opposed to internal advocacy (within SAIT) – that typically means Municipal, Federal, and Provincial authorities.
