The Student Council will be facilitating an election for 2 First-Year Student Representatives and 1 Graduating Student Representative.
You might be wondering about the process involved in this year’s election. We hope to answer some of your questions!
- Elections are taking place from September 26 – 28. You will be able to vote between 8 AM – 4 PM. You must present your Student ID.
- If you are an eligible first-year student, you are only permitted to vote for the First-Year Student Representatives positions, and not the Graduating Student Representative (and vice-versa).
- In a contested race, the winning candidate must more votes than any of their opponents. In an uncontested vote, the candidate must have a majority of voters vote “yes.”
- The Student Council will be hosting a time where candidates can share their ideas and vision for Student Council with the wider student community. This will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 11:20 AM – 12:00 PM in the Main Commons.

Meet the Candidates
First Year Student Representatives
My name is Micaela, I am a first year Behavioural Sciences mature student. I love quite the array of things from video games, books, crafting, and writing. Really I just love learning new things about anything, everything and everyone that I can. I grew up on a rural reserve called Berens River, so growing up somewhat secluded has given me a hunger to know more of what the world has to offer. I have always wanted to give back and going to school is my first step. I one day hope to bring healing to the youth of my community for they have to face much adversity that is still very unknown to many around the world. Youth in general have always been on my heart to help. I want to know why, how and what have caused my life to be as it has been and use that knowledge to teach youth how to overcome and destroy the stigmas related to mental health. Family life may have postponed my journey but not my will to achieve my goals. I want to show the world and my hometown that I am a strong aboriginal woman capable of anything I put my mind to. I feel I have a lot more to offer than just a smile and a nod.
Hi my name is Sam, I am in my first year at Booth studying Behavioral Science. I previously attended Durham College and attained my diploma in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Assisting. I love hanging out with others and going on crazy adventures. Trying new things and finding new places is one of my favorite things to do.
My name is Darsh. I am a first-year student at Booth. I started at the University of Winnipeg but decided to switch to Booth. I am enrolled in the 2-year Diploma in Business Administration. I love playing sports. I play cricket, volleyball, and hockey. I love watching movies and tv series. I love listening to music. I love having fun. I love dancing. I love nature and I love going out.

Graduating Student Representative
My name is Christine and I am a fourth year Religion major. I moved to Winnipeg around 3 years ago from Toronto where I grew up and was previously studying. I currently attend the Salvation Army Living Hope Community Church where I also work as a Youth Pastor. In my free time I enjoy playing the guitar, reading Nancy Drew mystery novels and writing long essays for Dr. Jeal’s class (Just kidding!). But in all seriousness, I love Booth, the education that I have received here and the community that has been developed. I can’t wait to see what is next for Booth UC with the help of the Student Council.
