Hello Folks, my name is Prabhjot Singh Ahuja. I am your Vice President of Operations and Finance for LUSU for the term 2020/21. Throughout my time in Lakehead I have passionately advocated for all students and have been fortunate to sit on the LUSU’s Board of Directors for the past two years. Along with that, I have served as a President in one of the LUSU’s clubs for two years.
Being intricately involved with students, I have come to understand the struggles we face. LUSU and I are here to support you through thick and thin, especially during these uncertain times. If you have any concerns please reach us. We will work together to find a solution.
Hello Thunderwolves! My name is Amla, and this year I am your VP for Student
Advocacy for LUSU. I’ve been a student at LU since 2017 and have actively participated
in student clubs and events conducted by LUSU. As an executive of the LU Indian
Student Association for over two years, I’ve learned a tonne about the student issues
faced by both international and domestic students alike. I intend and still continue to
learn more. I aim to advocate for such student issues during my term, to successfully
maintain the democratic process bestowed and enabled by the student body.
The students of LU face uncertain academic changes due to the pandemic that now
prevails in our community. As VPA for 2020-2021, I solemnly swear to support the
student body during these trying times, just as how the LU community assisted me in
achieving the student experience that I rightfully deserved.
I ask the student body to feel free to reach out in times of need. LUSU was created for
you and strives to this day to ensure your education is protected and continues to
remain beneficial for your lives.
I, as VPA, aspire to uphold this practice.
