Hi everyone! My name is Nimrit Kenth and I am a third year Health Science student. Outside of school I love swimming, playing piano, and hiking. My favourite pastimes are baking and spending time with my family.

What I would like to accomplish in my position

As President, my goals consist of working with the council to build a community atmosphere both in-person and online, so that students receive the best experience possible. I also hope to provide students with more career path guidance, as well as opportunities to volunteer and research. I would love to hear from you all so please reach out!

Favourite event

My favourite events, because it is impossible to pick just one would have to be 101 week and Winter Formal. 101 week is a great event to meet many of your close friends at university, both first years and upper years. Definitely one of the moments you will remember the most from university. Winter formal allows you to reconnect with Health Science students you have not seen in a while, and it’s a great night to take a break and have fun. 

VP of Finance

What I would like to accomplish in my position

As your VP finance, it is my job to manage and oversee all things relating to finances for our association. My goal this year is to work hard with the other execs to plan some really great events for you guys this school year!

VP of

University Affairs

Hey HSS! I'm Amani Kane and I'm a 3rd year Bilingual Health Science Student. I am so happy to be your VP of University Affairs! When I'm not advocating your rights to the faculty, I love to swim, play piano, draw and (pre-covid) travel. I'm looking forward to meeting you all when it is safe to do so :)

What I would like to accomplish in my position

My main job is to be the liaison between you, the faculty, the professors and the union. With the help of this amazing team of executives, I aim to improve the student-university relationship for the better. I want to hear your ideas, your thoughts, your feedback, your concerns, your cares. If you feel that your voice is heard and taken into account, I feel that I have accomplished my job!

Favourite event

This is so hard to pick!! I loved 101 week so much because I met so many amazing people but I also loved the Winter Formal because it was an excuse to dress up and forget about school. Wine & Cheese as well as Beer & Pizza nights were also very special because you got to meet professors in a chilled setting and chat the night away :)
