|My name is David D’Eon. I am entering into my third year of a Political Studies degree, with a minor in French. I am the president of the Political Studies Students’ Association, an organization that I kickstarted this year, and which holds a membership of 45 volunteers. I can’t explain my love of politics as anything less than a passion. For me, the prospect of representing the college of Arts and Science is a responsibility I take very seriously, because I understand that the USSU has a responsibility to improve the experience of every person that walks through our doors.
I began volunteering for the Women’s Centre on campus over a year ago. I am an advocate for feminism, and I am convinced that having representatives ready to address issues of gendered violence and discrimination is necessary to create a university community that welcomes everyone.
Ultimately, what I am trying to sell you on is my experience. I firmly believe that I have the life skills necessary to adapt and excel within student council, and I am confident that I can leave this position next year having made a positive impact on the university as a whole.
