Please join us in giving a warm welcome to Yu Tong (Emily) Tang, our new VP External, starting October 1st! Here is a bit about her:
"My name is Yu Tong (Emily) Tang and I am a first-year Master of Arts student in Kinesiology. I have many years of experience with student-led advocacy. I am currently on the Youth Advisory Board of Action Canada where I am helping advance sexual health and rights for Canadian youth across the country. I am also working with Women and Gender Equality Canada where I am helping with a national #ItsNotJust gender-based violence campaign. In my undergrad, I have served as the Co-President of the Health Sciences’ Student Association as well. On my mandate as your VP External, I would like to address the housing crisis, increase graduate student funding, advocate for accessible childcare, and better mental health support, as well as more funding for sexual violence prevention and education. I am also committed to the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion through my advocacy work. I’m so excited to represent your voices and get to know you all!"
We look forward to working with you!
