Meet Your Student Life Ambassadors
Our new team of Student Life Ambassadors will be joining us in August 2022.
Last Year’s Team of Student Life Ambassadors
2nd Year Student, Telecommunications Systems Program
Hi, my name is Amanzhan and I am a 2nd-year student at BCIT. My passion for Laser and Network Technologies brought me to the Telecommunications Systems program.
During my two years at BCIT, I actively engaged in campus life and social activities. I advocate for students’ rights at Student Association, work on campus as a Student Life Ambassador and provide tutoring sessions as a Peer Tutor. I will be happy to connect you with all the exciting campus events and helpful services at BCIT.
In my spare time, I like playing water polo, doing hikes with friends and reading classical literature. I came to BC from Kazakhstan with my brother. We make sure each of us thrives in our career paths by supporting and helping each other.
TV and Video Production, School of Business
Hello, I joined the Student Life Ambassador program because I thought it would be a great opportunity to expand my horizon and to make a different connection from other programs. My few interests are taking photos, camping, hiking and many outdoor activities. Thankfully, we all live on this beautiful land, if you enjoy these things too, don’t be afraid to say “Hi!”.
Accounting Diploma Program, School of Business
My name is Bobby Davidson (pronouns are he/him/his) and I am currently taking courses toward my Accounting Diploma and related subjects in Financial Management part-time on a full-time basis. I decided to become a Student Life Ambassador (SLA) because I am passionate about community involvement and the desire to be a helping hand for my fellow students. Since starting out as an SLA, I have engaged with a number of my peers through boothing, assistance in wayfinding, and tour guiding around campus. My favourite past-times (when I have more time on my hands) are walking and bike-riding along Vancouver’s scenic and beautiful seawall, PC and console video gaming, and binge-watching television shows and movies. When I started out as a full-time student in the 2020-21 school year I was keen on getting involved from the get-go, taking on roles like Set Representative for my first-year set and Councilor at the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) while balancing with my studies in the fully online environment. This school year has been more unpredictable than the last for us as we returned to campus in the Fall before going back online at the start of January, and most students have now returned to on-campus learning again. Now that students are returning to campus, I continue to do my best to stay determined in working towards success in all aspects – as a student in my studies, contributing through my role as an SLA and a former Executive at the BCITSA, and building networks and friendships along the way. Over this Winter 2022 semester, I am looking forward to working among the Student Life Office and SLA team to plan and promote exciting and engaging events that will be both beneficial and enjoyable for students, as well as inclusive to alumni, faculty, and other individuals and organizations in our community.
1st Year Student, Computer Systems Technology Program
Hey! My name is Manreet and I am a first-year student in the Computer Systems Technology program at BCIT. What could be more satisfying than being able to help fellow students? That is what attracted me to become a Student Life Ambassador. Also, it provides an opportunity to interact with other BCIT students. As an SLA, my goal is to make every student aware of services offered by BCIT and make use of them whenever needed. I am here to help you, so feel free to reach out to me.
2nd Year Student, Business Operations Management Program
Hi there! My name is Rosie and I am currently in my second year of Business Operations Management. I’ve received so much support from BCIT in the past one year when I had to study online for a whole year in my home country. This drove me to join the Student Life Ambassador team as a great way to “pay it forward”.
Post-secondary life at BCIT can be hectic, overwhelming and full of apprehension; however, I am here and we can get through this together! Feel free to talk to me or ask me any questions if you see me around. I would love to have a chat with you and show you everything BCIT can offer.
2nd Year Student, International Business Management Program
My name is Sarah Vu, and I’m in the second year of the International Business Management Diploma program at BCIT. I applied to be an ambassador as I wish to have fun after school and to help students to know more about the services that BCIT has to offer. Although my program was 100% online last year, I was having lots of team meetings, assignments, and team projects. I play piano and go for brisk walks to relax. If you folks see me on campus, don’t hesitate to say hi to me.
“If you don’t want to get lost on campus, look for visual cues wherever you go”. When you see Tim Hortons and the Stand, you are at SE12. At NE1, you’ll see the red telephone booth with lots of decorations in it. SE14 is where peer tutoring and entrepreneurship events take place…
Also, don’t forget to bring your utensils and chopsticks for lunch. Eating pasta without your fork is such a challenging task…
My two week of training with everyone was fantastic. I’ve learnt so many new things. I hope to promote BCIT services as much as I can during this year.
2nd Year Student, Radio Arts and Entertainment Program
My name is Scheila Masinda, I am in my second year of the radio arts and entertainment program.
I wanted to be a student life ambassador because I believe that the work we will do is essential to help students feel welcome at school, to know what to be aware of, to feel comfortable, and ask a question with no worries of feeling judged. I like helping and building others up. I believe in making people feel included, making people laugh, and just making sure that whoever I work with feels like they are supported.
This would be a great opportunity to be able to connect to as many people as possible with my positive spirit.
I am excited that this year I’ll have the opportunity to help make the student life ambassador team shine.
2nd Year Student, Business Management Diploma Program
Hi my name is Tanvir and I’m currently a 2nd year of my Business Management Diploma. I chose to be a Student Life Ambassador so I can make the BCIT student experience a little more fun by hosting exciting events. My hobbies include; jamming out to music, doing thrill-seeking activities like bungee jumping or axe throwing, and making art. BCIT is definitely intense but it’s also a very rewarding experience. If you see me on campus come say hi!
