SOPHONIE FOR PRESIDENT
My name is Sophonie Priebe, and I am running with the SFU Progressives to be your next SFSS President. I’m a third year joint-major in Criminology and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, with a minor in Psychology.
I’m an adopted, Haitian/Dominican Black woman, into a multi-ethnic family with a strong connection to my church community. At times, they have not identified with my lived experiences, but have enabled me to impart learning with grace and compassion.
I’m the VP for the Students of Caribbean and African Ancestry, the SASS Rep, and the Events and Social Media Coordinate of GSWS Student Union. Through these positions, I've collaborated with student unions for events and campaigns, such as pushing for the Black Faculty Hiring and Black student scholarships at the SFU Senate.
My experiences have strengthened me to defend and advocate for workers, organizers, LGBTQ2SIA+, disabled, racialized, migrant, and/or low-income students. We come from all walks of life and have sacrificed so much yet still keep our voices.
As your President, I will build on the work of my predecessors and in solidarity with all students on campus by building joy, celebration, and empowering the community by:
DEFEND STUDENT SAFETY DURING COVID-19
I am here alongside a formidable group of individuals to bring together all Students, Staff, Faculty, Workers and Organizers - to Defend Student Power on Campus!
