My name is Sofia Vishnevska and I am a second-year supply chain management student. I will be running for the VP Internal Affairs’ position for the 2020-2021 CASA team.
If you have ever talked to a student who is part of an association or committee, I am sure they have told you that getting involved is the best decision they have made in University. For the past two years, I have been fortunate enough to be part of CASA Cares which is the non-profitable branch of JMSB. I not only had the chance to work with a group of passionate and dedicated people, but had the opportunity to improve my business communication skills while contributing to a great cause.
After holding a first-year representative and director of events position, I am ready for some new challenges. Being CASA’s VP Internal will allow me to continue to acquire new skills while serving you, the student body. I believe my previous experience on a subsidiary would contribute largely towards my success in this role. Although it is also important to note that organization, a skill crucial to the position, is one I have always inherently excelled at.
One opportunity I see for the CASA team and its subsidiaries is bringing more awareness to the different role responsibilities and requirements, as well as the application process for its team. Positions such as VP finance or VP events are usually well-known, but many others often bring confusion to students who were not previously involved. In order to reach out to those who do not know much about the inner workings of CASA and its subsidiaries, I believe it would be beneficial to provide students with information about each role through year-round information sessions or workshops, not only during the application period in March.
On a final note, I thank you for taking time to visit my platform & encourage you to vote as it is your duty to elect students who you believe are worthy of holding an executive position and will be able to deliver successful events.
