Dara is a 5th year Faculty of Science student at the University of Manitoba. She is currently the Vice President Advocacy for UMSU.
Why I am doing this:
Throughout this past year, as the Vice President Advocacy I have had the chance to work with students who have found themselves with out a home, without food security, and with out means to pay for their education. I think it would be a great experience for me to see in a more first-hand way what many students go through. I also hope to bring more awareness to the barriers that students often face when trying to access their education.
