How long have you been at Saitsa?

I’ve only been here since October 2021 and I am enjoying myself!

 

What do you enjoy most about your job? 

I like that my job is student-facing! I can interact with students online and in-person at the Governance and Advocacy Office. I have been a student before, so it is important to me that I help students and manage issue for them to the best of my abilities! Also, working with the Board of Directors is fun!


What is your education and work background? 

I completed my Master’s in Communications and Cinema from the University of Warwick in the UK. I have experience working with Macmillan Publishers in India as their Administrative Business Partner.


Why did you choose to work for Saitsa? 

While I was looking for a job in a post-secondary institute, I came across the job posting for my position and was intrigued with both Saitsa and the position’s role in students’ educational endeavours.


What advice do you have for new SAIT students? 

As a member of the Saitsa team I would advise students to make the most of the opportunities Saitsa provides! We are here to make students feel supported whether it is with our Governance & Advocacy Office, our Student Grant Program Application, or through Student Services. Students should regularly visit our website and keep updated on all the services/events we offer.


Why should students get to know Saitsa? 

Students should get to know Saitsa because our sole purpose is to help, support and represent them and their issues. Saitsa exists to bring importance upon students’ interests not only by brining information to SAIT but also the government. It is important to us to help students sail through the challenges they face and make this academic journey for them as smooth as possible!
