Mount Allison Students' Union
Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Fredericton NB quickly became a place she calls home when she moved there at the age of 10. Yana is a fourth-year Bachelor of Science student majoring in Psychology. She is serving as the current Vice President External for the Mount Allison Students’ Union (MASU) in Sackville, New Brunswick.
Yana was the Vice President Communications of the MASU during the 2017-18 year along with having been the SHARE Peer Educator Mentor where she developed a by-stander training, worked on sexual violence awareness and other related initiatives on campus. Additionally, she is going into her third year of volunteering as the Athletic Trainer for Mount Allison Varsity Sports with having worked with the Women’s Volleyball team and this year working with the Mounties Football team.
This year, Yana is looking forward to her role as the Director at-Large with a focus on equity and accessibility. She hopes to work with the membership to provide the opportunity for CASA members to sponsor students from diverse backgrounds to attend our conferences so that we are able to have as much representation as possible. Yana also hopes to implement an equity and diversity workshop for our membership along with being a great resource for anything related to accessibility and equity issues on our member schools. Overall, she is looking forward to working with the membership and the Board of Directors to improve the organization so that it best represents all students that attend post-secondary education.
