IGNITE ELECTION: VP Candidates for Guelph-Humber

Rose Bonello

Bonello is a second-year Early Childhood Studies student.

What inspired your decision to run?
I am running for many reasons, the main reason I wanted to run was to be fully involved in the process of making a difference.

What would you improve about Guelph-Humber?
The communication among the school as a whole, to create awareness for students in regards to what is happening both on an academic and social level, and to continue to advocate and implement new strategies to improve our ongoing issues.

What is your favourite thing about Guelph-Humber?
My favourite attribute about Guelph -Humber is the ability it has to create a welcoming space. The school itself is a smaller environment but it never fails to amaze me what the people inside are capable of doing.

Name three characteristics that make you a good candidate for Vice-President.
I am determined, a good listener and organized.


Harry Carlisle

Carlisle is a third-year B.A.Sc Honours Kinesiology student.

What inspired your decision to run?
I am currently working for IGNITE as an Event Associate and I believe that they have had such a positive influence on students but there are things we can still work on.

What would you improve about Humber?
I believe that implementing renewable sources of energy and maintaining our current level of sustainability will cut costs of energy use. I would like to also add push activation buttons to all classroom doors so that those with accessibility needs are able to get into their classes without the need of others.

What is your favourite thing about Guelph-Humber?
I believe that our multiculturalism is something that should be celebrated. At the end of the day we’re all students trying to do our best and make the most of our time on campus.

Name three characteristics that make you a good candidate for Vice-President.
Self-awareness. Respectful. My strong communication skills.


Maheen Nazim

What inspired your decision to run?
I didn’t just want to see change happening on our campus, or wish for it. I wanted to be apart of it and lead it to the best future possible.

What would you improve about Humber?
There are really two main focuses on my campaign – academic-related and non-academic. For non-academic, I want to make our resources more accessible and efficient. I hope to develop an IGNITE app, which can be a central hub for all thing Humber/GH. I want to create a larger Academic Program Representative group to give more students a chance to be involved.

What is your favourite thing about Guelph-Humber?
My favourite thing about Guelph-Humber is the ability to integrate both academic courses and hands-on courses.

Name three characteristics that make you a good candidate for Vice-President.
I’m a great listener, great advocator, and great leader (and of course the amazing pink hair).
