I am Elyar.
A Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian and Muslim that struggled to find a social community
because of my differences in high school, I wish to unite and solidify the diverse potential
connections between the plethora of ethnicities at Marianopolis rather than let segregation take
Elements of different cultures I adore and have experience in include foods, music and history.
Plans I have include custom sharing days, unique food potlucks, an “artistic” performance
fundraiser using our native languages and Religion for a day (for atheists).
Thank you, merci, terima kasih, sağ olun for your time and votes.
Hello! My name is Nadeen. I am running for this position because I am truly interested in the
diverse student body here at Marianopolis. I find that it is easiest to learn and connect with
other people through activities. Some of my ideas include outdoor or indoor movie viewing of
cultural films, a cultural food festival with different food trucks, cultural guest speakers coming
to school, holiday celebrations, Culture Week, diverse dance workshops, cultural crafts such as
Chinese calligraphy and Palestinian embroidery. I also intend to plan events for Heritage
Months. Getting to know you is what’s important to me.

Coordinator of Charities and Volunteering
Hi there, this is a recap of my letter of intent :)
1. I am resourceful. During my volunteer experiences, whether at school, at the YMCA or at the
Banque omnium nationale, I got to develop new connections and skills to help you find your
right volunteer opportunities or help create fundraisers.
2. I adapt according to feedback. No matter what I do, I always seek for feedback, even with
the drawing of Capybara on the poster! If I get elected, my focus would be about volunteers
at Marianopolis not getting hungry or exploited. A google form would most likely sent after
an event to know more about your experience.
3. I love capybaras.
