Athabasca University Student's Union
Manmeet serves as the Vice-President External at Athabasca University Student’s Union (AUSU). She is in her final year of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and is a pre-medical student who aspires to go to medical school to serve Canadian rural communities.
As a racialized women of colour, international student and practising nurse looking ahead to work towards being a medical doctor, she offers a perspective that is only sometimes present in the student movement. She has learned a good deal about both advocacy and governance in her time serving with the British Columbia Nurse’s Union (BCNU) as a Union Steward. She has witnessed the first hand impact that poor financial management can have on patient care. She plans to extend her experience to the role of treasurer where she wants to ensure that every student dollar is spent to its full potential. She wants to extend her experience as a tutor and a clinical instructor to present the budget to membership in an easy to understand and engaging way.
Manmeet wants to work together with membership by being transparent and to help make informed decisions that benefit the whole organization. She is committed to ensure that the organization maximizes those student dollars to get CASA the biggest impact for the least amount of money.
When not busy running into a meeting, you might find her spending time with her family, working on her research assistant project or working-out at the local gym.
