Selena is in her sixth year of university taking Human Ecology in the faculty of ALES. She is majoring in Family Ecology and minoring in Community Diversity. OUTreach is very important to her because she knows the value of finding a community where you feel accepted, included, and understood. When she isn't in class (and she is not in class very often) she is usualy hanging out with friends at Remedy or wasting time on tumblr! She is so thankful and excited for the opportunity to be a part of OUTreach as an executive. Don't be shy, she would love to get to know you all!
Cassie is a fourth-year transfer student from Halifax, Nova Scotia, working on a combined degree in Psychology & English Lit! You can almost always find her camped out in Rutherford Library, reading Shakespeare or trying to understand Sigmund Frued. If she's not there, chances are high that she's loitering in coffee shops, re-watching the same 10 shows on Netflix, or reading for fun (because she’s just that cool). She is currently employed as a Residence Assistant for the university, and is passionate about creating safe, inclusive spaces on campus! She's totally jazzed to be working with OUTreach's amazing members as VP Internal, so if you see her around you should say hello!
I have had tea with the sasquatch. He really likes orange pekoe.
Alec is in his fourth year of the Honors Immunology and Infection programme at the U of A and is working on his 499 Project Thesis under Dr. Shmulevitz on Oncolytic Virology. In addition to serving as VP Operations on the OUTreach executive, Alec serves as the Special Performances Manager for the U of A Mixed Chorus. He was introduced to OUTreach by a friend three years ago and has since enjoyed it's capacity as both a social group and a forum for discussion. Alec is very grateful to be able to give back to this wonderful group and will strive to uphold the safe place provided by OUTreach: where issues of all kinds may be discussed and differing perspectives and points of view are respected and considered. Alec is always up for meeting new people - don't be shy to say hi!
Leanna is a Honey Badger. HB loves cats.
Em is very excited to be serving as VP People and Partners this year! OUTreach has been a very important space for Em, helping them to fully embrace a queer identity, find a safe space on campus (where they spend the rest of their life studying neuroscience…), and connect with amazing people! They hope to help others do the same, and have some awesome adventures along the way. In their free time, Em…. Oh, never mind. No such thing. But they do enjoy reading, anything Doctor Who-related, and the occasional trip to the other side of the planet.
Arlene is a fifth year Human Ecology student at the university. She currently is majoring in Family Ecology with a minor in Youth and Child studies. Arlene has a passion for volleyball, fitness, food, the fine arts, the sciences, and as you can see the list can go on.
She is a big believer of living life in the present and being mindful of others. Her goal is to spread love, promote equality and celebrate diversity. Don’t be shy to say hello to her!
It is her pleasure to serve OUTreach as the VP Support external for 2015/2016.
Ps, I spend majority of my time building and playing with my award winning model train set.
