Candidate for VP External
Hello NAIT students!
My name is Aneli Bamba, an Executive Council candidate for your next VP External 2022-2023.
I’m a second-year international student taking Business Administration in Marketing. I’m currently serving as your NAITSA Senator at the Finance Sub-Committee. My current role is to serve you in your best interest as a NAIT student, ensuring your student association’s membership fees are used efficiently in accordance with your needs. In addition, I’m also involved with Enactus NAIT as the club’s VP of Marketing.
I have experience practicing as a College Instructor in the same university where I graduated as Cum Laude for Bachelor of Science in Information Management in the Philippines. My servant leadership has touched 21 restaurant locations in the Middle East and EU countries as their Global Marketing Manager based in Dubai. With my 10 long years of professional experience and leadership skills, I am ready to bring these qualities as your next VP External.
Here’s my WHY
First, I have intentions to strengthen my passion for personal growth and to maximize opportunities for professional learning. I have grown so much residing in Edmonton, Alberta and I have been fascinated by my experiences at NAIT. I’m eager for further knowledge and wisdom.
Secondly, my capabilities of acting in the best interest of NAIT students while serving as your NAITSA Senator open more doors for me to advocate on your behalf.
Lastly, I am excited to bring your voice as an advocate to external bodies at various levels such as municipal, provincial, and federal. As your students’ needs evolve, I am ready to be involved in working with other post-secondary student associations/unions across Alberta and Canada to create a sustainable impact for students.
Here’s my PLAN
Should you elect me as your VP External, I advocate for:
- Admissible tuition fees and mandatory non-instructional fees (MNIFs)
- Availability of Online Educational Resources (OERs)
- Additional Micro-credential Courses
Regarding the tuition fee and MNIFs, I firmly advocate making them admissible. With the unofficial and new MNIF (for instructional technology fee) proposed by NAIT to us at NAITSA and its members, our unified voice influences change.
For OERs, I advocate expediting the availability of learning resources and materials online to assist students with their book expenses.
Lastly, I envision being involved in amplifying the students’ demand for developing Micro-credential Courses which will help students get certification in specific skills that employers look for in employability.
For the entirety of the student body, it will always be my top priority to ensure responsiveness to your emerging needs; create a safe space and environment to share your concerns and focus on students’ wellbeing. Finally, I will support your student journey and advocate to secure your bright future after NAIT.
Imagine the possibilities and value of my service.
It takes your vote to make these happen.
Vote ANELI BAMBA as your next NAITSA VP External.
