Alley Medeiros

EC Candidate for VP Academic

Do you want someone to advocate for your academic needs?

I am Alley, and I am running for NAITSA’s VP Academic to represent you and make your voices heard.

What I can bring to this position as your representative, is my experience and perspective from both a domestic and international student. I am an international student pursuing my BTech degree.  I also hold a bachelor’s degree from the US and more education from my home country, Brazil. Being exposed to other secondary schools gave me the knowledge of what kinds of supports for students work and what don’t work on campus.

I also have eight years of experience working in the industry, which has taught me how to lead others and collaborative seek solutions to problems creating the best outcome.  I  support my peers by modeling openness, trustful, transparency, empathy, and treat each person and situation as unique.

Since I got to NAIT, I volunteered for the BTech program in a capstone project, as an executive for the BTech Club, for events for NAIT International Centre, Open House, and worked on campus as an International Peer Mentor, Service Hub Assistant for NAITSA, and UPass Clerk. All this involvement on campus made me experience school from different perspectives, and that qualifies me to represent you even better.

As an International Peer Mentor for the past year, I have helped many students and got to know and understand their concerns. This experience inspired me to run for the position of VP Academic because I want to help all students succeed academically while here at NAIT.

As a VP Academic, you can count on me to advocate for:

  • More quiet study spaces on campus;
  • Food options and other services while we have classes running;
  • More mental health support and awareness;
  • Continuity of essential services that enhance our academic performance.

If you want to talk to me more, have questions, or want to give me suggestions, send me an email: alleysm@gmail.com.

I am looking forward to getting the honor to represent you for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Vote Alley to have your voices heard!
