Hello Acadia Students!! My name is Menat Tahoun and I am going up for the position of Vice President of Academics & External for the 2021-2022 year.
I am a Second-year Kinesiology student who is passionate about advocating for students’ needs and wants. I have been a part of the ASU team for the last 2 years, in my first year I was the first-year representative for the ASU. In my role as the first-year representative, I got to represent all first-year Acadia students. I enjoyed my involvement in the ASU so much that in my second year I became the Professional studies senator, here I got to represent and advocate for all professional studies students. I also got to work closely with the current VP of Academics & External, Lydia Houck. Working with Lydia this year made me realize that I want to do what she does and advocate for all students within Acadia and outside. Being a part of the Academic Affairs team, I got to help with extending the drop with a W date. When the drop with a W date got extended to the last day of class, that’s when I knew that I wanted to become the VP of Academics.
Voting for me means, voting for diversity, inclusion, and a candidate that cares about your needs!
