I am an upper year PhD student in the Department of Anthropology. During my seven years at UofT I have held numerous positions on the Anthropology Graduate Student Union, departmental committees, the GSU and CUPE 3902. If elected, I will provide a strong voice for all graduate students in Divisions I and II, and especially international students who cannot sit on Governing Council. Two of my top priorities are the replacement of full tuition with lower post-residency fees and the recruitment of more Aboriginal students at the graduate level.
