Hello, my name is Emily Bridge; I am running for the position of vice-president equity and sustainability because I believe the key aspects of this portfolio are instrumental for a successful university experience. As students we are poised to make significant positive impacts in our communities, but many people face barriers, visible and/or invisible, towards achieving their goals.
