ETC StaffMarch 3, 20181225 min

Jeremy Afonso

Afonso is a second-year Business Administration student.

What inspired your decision to run?
I was inspired to run for VP because I saw a lot of injustice being done last semester to students during the strike and even afterwards in terms of academic standards.

What would you improve at Humber?
I’d like to improve the academic guidelines set forth by professors in order to make sure students have a completely fair semester, increase the amount of study space on campus in order to better accommodate the growing number of students at Humber North.

What is your favourite thing about Humber?
My favourite thing about Humber has to be the overwhelming help that every facility within Humber offers towards all students. From all LRC staff to the Business School at Humber, I’ve always had a positive and uplifting experience seeking out assistance with any academic or personal situation encountered, and I think that is absolutely amazing.

Name three characteristics that make you a good candidate for Vice President.
I inspire confidence in others by having it in myself, very energetic, and extremely transparent with everyone.


Jason Hyatt

Hyatt is a first-year General Arts & Sciences Program student.

What inspired your decision to run?
I want to make students feel comfortable and confident enough to advocate for themselves. Every voice matters and change can’t happen if you don’t speak up for what you want.

What would you improve at Humber?
I would like to implement a workshop for all students to learn about challenging homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, stigmas, racism, bullying, and safe ways to talk about these subjects and the processes in which to report them. I also want students to have access to reloading their Presto Cards since many students commute.

What is your favourite thing about Humber?
My favourite thing about Humber is that we’re not just students or classmates, we are a community. If there is anything going on with our lives and need someone to talk to or listen there are centres and spaces for each and every one of us.

Name three characteristics that make you a good candidate for Vice-President.
With my four and a half years of serving in the Royal Air Cadets (700 David Hornell V.C. Squadron), I believe that it equipped me with the strong leadership skills, the ability to be open-minded to new ideas and to respect people.
