Alex Downey


My name is Alex Downey. I am a 27 year old Computer Engineering Technologist student. I am passionate about empowering my community and helping others to achieve their potential. Every student should be heard. And so, I promise to listen to you and advocate for the interests of NAIT students across all campuses.

In 2019 I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Music. During which I was the Co-Founder and President of the Live Music Club. Over the course of my Presidency we fed over 1600 unhoused individuals in Edmonton at live, self-hosted, music events. Through my Presidency I received an invitation to the European Innovation Academy in Turin, Italy. I spent a month there with mentors learning leadership, teambuilding, and advocating skills. I aim to use this skillset to empower, enrich, and enjoy our community to its maximum potential.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! Please consider choosing me as your President. It would be an absolute honor to serve the student body.

I hope our paths cross so we can high five!
