Hey Acadia students, I’m Georgia! For those of you who haven’t met me yet, I’m a third-year Kinesiology student and I’m originally from Waverley, Nova Scotia. I jumped at the opportunity to come to Acadia and study Kinesiology once I heard about the amazing experiences associated with the university from my older peers. The reviews held true, and only shortly after moving into residence, I found myself in love with Wolfville. I immediately cherished the sense of community and the incredible people I met only weeks after settling in, I felt like I was home.
I am so lucky to have had such a positive experience over my (almost) three years here at Acadia. As a candidate for Vice President of Student Life in the upcoming ASU election, I want to ensure that all Acadia students feel that same sense of belonging and support, whether they’re taking classes from Wolfville or elsewhere during these difficult times. The past year has put everyone in extraordinary circumstances, and this means that the support for students’ mental health and education must be extraordinary as well.
It is my hope to be elected into this position so that I can ensure student wellbeing and health is a priority both on-campus and within the community. It is important to me that although we find ourselves more distant this year, we are unified as students and that we feel capable to represent the resilience and adaptability that our generation has adopted.
