Hello, my name is Calvin. I am running to become your 1L Rep for section A01 and act as your liaison with the MLSA as well as being a general advocate on your behalf.

I graduated from the University of Winnipeg with a philosophy major and have spent the last few years working as an educator alongside my wife in Thailand and China. During that time I have had some amazing experiences, alongside the chance to engage in work that I found to be very meaningful.

Even though classes are online during the fall term I plan on getting involved with our school community and I look forward to helping to share the opportunities available to us with you.  I am always excited to meet new people and work collaboratively to solve problems.

It has been a pleasure meeting you in the last few weeks, and for those of you have I have yet to meet in person I look forward to hopefully seeing you in the winter term!

Hello! I’m Rebecca and I am running to be your A01 Class Rep.

I live in Winnipeg and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Manitoba in 2020. Since then, I’ve been working here in the city and using my free time to explore as many restaurants, ice cream shops, and dog parks as I could find.

I am running because I have been blown away by the sense of community at Robson Hall, and I would love nothing more than to help bring our class together over the next year.

During my undergrad I was involved in my faculty’s student association. I worked to plan all types of events and represented the student body on various committees and councils.

While I know we will have a ton of fun together, we’re all here to learn and succeed. If given the opportunity, I believe I can put this experience to good use and I commit to doing everything I can to support our section.

Thank you so much for reading. If you have any questions, please reach out! I would love to chat.

Kali Faingold

Hi everyone! My name is Kali and I am running to be your A03 Class Rep. 

Just so you know a little bit about me, I was born in Argentina but I have lived in Winnipeg for over 17 years. I graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology this past Fall, and have been working in the Admissions Office at the University ever since. I absolutely love to be outside in the sun, and wish the summer was way longer than it unfortunately is… 

I want to represent our section because I am amazed at the strong sense of community and friendship I have felt at Robson Hall in such a short period of time, and would love nothing more than to ensure that everyone in A03 feels that. I am committed to being a loyal and caring class representative to ensure that our entire section feels supported and welcomed at Robson Hall. 

We are such a diverse and motivated group of people, I want to make sure that all of our voices are heard and that we have an incredible year together. I am passionate about making connections with people and cant wait to facilitate meaningful ways for us to all get together throughout the year (whether that is virtually or in person). 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and please fell free to reach out to me if you have any other questions! I cant wait to spend the rest of this year together.
