Elyar Cultural.png


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.

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

Sara Tian CV.png

Sara Tian

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.
