Saima Nur Chowdhury for VP Finance and Services
Students need better benefits, more support, and an SFSS that works for them!
Hello, I’m Saima Nur Chowdhury and I’m running for VP Finance and Services. I’m a 3rd year double major in International Studies and Political Science. I have been involved extensively with clubs, student unions and independent student societies where I’ve learned about and worked on issues important to both international and domestic students.
In 2019, I served as a director in Simon Fraser Public Interest Research Group (SFPIRG) providing grants and opportunities to students and as the VP Events for International Studies Students’ Association. Currently I’m an SFU Senator and CJSF 90.1 Radio show host. Furthermore, I have volunteered with the SFU SVSPO’s Active Bystander Network.
In the SFSS, I have volunteered in the SFSS Women’s Center, and helped the Bangladeshi Students’ Association, Indian Students’ Federation, Pakistani Students’ Association at events.
The SFSS has gone through many positive changes in the last two years with the SUB being finished, shrunk admin costs, and the new Council powers. Now, students need more support, more dedicated funds, and better benefits.
As your VP Finance and Services, I will work to:
Restructure the SFSS’s Finances
Support International Students
