My name is Jeremy and I am running to be your PhUS President for the 2021/2022 academic year. Throughout the past two years, I have become an active member of the Pharmacy student community. As PhUS First-Year Representative last year and this year’s VP Internal, I grew to understand the roles and responsibilities required to create a proactive, organized, and collaborative PhUS Council. I have gained valuable experience that will allow for a smooth transition into the role of President. For instance, I actively contribute to PhUS meetings, events, and the other committees within PhUS. Furthermore, I am a member of the Pharmacy Vocal Ensemble and LKS.
I believe that we had an amazing PhUS council this year. However, due to uncertainties that were presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to use most of our budget due to the cancelation of several planned events. If elected, I would work with the whole council to ensure that our resources are used to their fullest potential. I want to find ways how we can give back to the students and how we can recreate the events that we missed this year. I would also continue to work with the rest of the council to improve communication and collaboration between all students, clubs, and faculty.
All in all, I believe that I have the right qualifications to be your new PhUS President. I am very excited to work with everyone towards a better experience for all Pharmacy students.
