Hello everyone! My name is Sadie McAlear and I am currently running for the position of Community Relations Rep on the Acadia Student Union Board. I am a second-year Science student majoring in Nutrition as well as a member of the Acadia Varsity Swim Team. Though I am a dedicated student and athlete, my passions reach beyond the pool and classroom: I simply love to learn. This is likely because I am fortunate enough to come from a long line of teachers who raised me in an environment that fostered a growth mindset in me which I apply to all aspects of my life. This has given me a diverse background made up of different experiences which will help me be the best representation between the students of Acadia and the permanent residents of Wolfville. I am a small-town girl through and through as I was raised in a community quite similar to Wolfville, and I understand the importance of having a unified and collaborative role within my community. There are few things I am more passionate about than creating a positive impact on those around me, and I believe this position is the perfect place for me to do just that. My ultimate goal is to help make Wolfville a place where students and residents live in harmony and work together to keep the town lively, respectful, and beautiful – as we all know it to be.
