I’m Kyle Vandertoorn, I’m a second-year Biology Major from Nova Scotia, and I’m super excited to be running for your V.P. Student Life! My time at Acadia has been nothing short of unforgettable, and my goal is to ensure that each student can reflect on their years here the same way.
I have extensive Council and volunteer experience as well as many personal attributes that I believe make me well-suited for this position. Through working heavily in Student Government over the years, being a part of multiple teams and committees, sitting as Student Administrative Director on our ASU Events and Promotions Committee, and volunteering with multiple school and community organisations such as S.M.I.L.E, Roots for Youth, Parkinson’s and ALS, and Mental Health initiatives, I have acquired extensive skills that I believe would benefit not only my work, but student life at Acadia. I am driven, open-minded, enthusiastic, and dedicated to my work.
My platforms, should I be elected, involve increasing volunteer opportunities by further connecting our school and community, to actively offer support and further involve our students, Internal Organisations, and Clubs, to offer platforms for student voice and initiative, to strengthen our mental health initiatives, and to create more inclusive, collaborative, events in residence as well as fundraising opportunities that will benefit both on and off-campus students. I hope that you elect me to represent and support you and your needs both on and off-campus as I will work my hardest to do so; happy voting!
