Campaign Summaries


Ana Taghizadeh - Positions: ELC Representative

Hey, I am Ana. Even though I am new to Columbia College, I would like to work with the Student Council and Student Life Coordinator to make the time for students in the ELC of Columbia College more fun! I want to bring and provide events that would enhance fun times at the College. I would also listen to the students and report their needs to the Council and follow up with the Council so that it reports their needs to the school accordingly. Please vote for me and thank you in advance.

Charlene Sanjaya - Positions: Social Media Director

Hey, everyone! My name is Elizabeth Charlene Sanjaya from Indonesia! I'm running for the position of Social Media Director, and would appreciate your vote! Back in Indonesia, there were loads of occasions where posters were needed, from regular subject posters to scientific research posters. From 7th grade, I've been tackling Canva and Photoshop, which is why I am very familiar with them. With my experience and passion, I believe I'm capable of being in charge of CC's social media. Please vote for me!

Edikan Etukudo-Williams - Positions: Treasurer

My contribution to the student council last semester feels well above overrated to me and I have decided to make a difference this time around. I am contesting for the position of the Treasurer and I would like your full support.

Remember,  A vote for Eddy is a vote for every penny.

James Vo - Positions: Treasurer

Hello, my name is Vo Minh Quan, or just call me James. As a member of the North Campus Student Council, it is my duty to help you enjoy your time at Columbia College as much as possible. One of the most important roles in the NCSC is the Treasurer. The Treasurer is the person who bears the responsibility of keeping in check the spending of activities for the students such as parties or movie nights. I have experience in this matter as I have worked part-time every weekend as a book-keeper for my parents' company and learnt many valuable things from my parents and my “co-workers.” Vote for James as the Treasurer, and I promise that your money is well-spent for the sake of your enjoyment.

Thank you for reading this.

Hello everyone! I’m Kathy Victoria! Nice to meet you all!! I am running for the Social Media Director position in this Winter 2020 semester. I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do, I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best. In my last semester at Columbia College, I have joined the Student Council and I want to take this chance to improve my creativity and produce great posters as well as manage the school’s social media accounts. This passion led me to challenge myself daily and learn new skills that helped me to do better work. For example, I taught myself how to use Photoshop and Canva to create posters to update new activities on North Campus. That is all from me! Your vote would mean a lot to me!
