candidate for VICE PRESIDENT STUDENT SERVICES
Hello, fellow students. My name is Jenny Zeng. I am a second-year business student. I am an enthusiastic and responsible person working towards completing my accounting diploma.
In August 2016, I came to Edmonton alone, full of curiosity and ambition. In the first year of school, I dedicated my time in volunteering and participating in many events. I joined the International Student Club, became a first-year representative and now the VP Finance. I wanted to enrich my student life to the maximum. And when presented the opportunity applied to become a Peer Mentor for the International Centre. A post I have been serving since August 2017. Being a student, I know exactly that what we need is not only the academic success, but also mental and physical wellbeing and support to improve student experience. During this period of being a peer mentor, I strive to connect with students, as well as provide support to them. We organize plenty of events and workshops, aiming to support students from all aspects and walks of life. I enjoy being a mentor and helping students get involved in campus life. That being said it is still a work in progress and I aim to do my best by the time I retire from the post.
Meanwhile, I join various of events on campus. Which is when I realized the numerous student services that NAITSA provides, but most students were unaware of all if not most of them. For example, did you know that you can enjoy health, dental & vision benefits as a full-time student? Did you know that there is food bank for students who need help at NAITSA? Did you know that there is an Emergency Short Term Loan Program at NAITSA? Did you know that NAITSA organise events to provide free Mental Health First Aid Training for students? Did you know that you can find a number of volunteer opportunities from the NAITSA website?
I feel very lucky to be a student at NAIT and enjoy these student services.
Therefore, I hope that the students get to know all the services provided for them and make the most use of it. This is something I would like to put effort into. Today I get the valuable opportunity to achieve this goal, which is to be the VP Student Service of NAITSA. If I am given the chance to be the VP Student Service, I will promise to put my 100 percent into promoting all the services we have, and try my best to encourage all the students to enjoy these services that NAITSA provides. In addition, I along with my team will hope to come up with more creative events to enrich student campus life. To do so, I will need your support. Please vote for me. Thank you all!
