Shifrah Gadamsetti is your Representation Executive Council President. She arrived at Mount Royal University in 2009 and has had trouble leaving ever since! Shifrah completed her Bachelors of Nursing in 2014, and has come back for a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology with a minor in Women’s Studies. Shifrah is a fierce social justice advocate, and strongly believes in affordability and access for students in university. She has had a wealth of experience in her time as a student, all focusing on student rights and representation. Shifrah has sat as a faculty representative on various nursing committees, been previous a clubs executive for two years, volunteered on the Vice President Academic Advisory Committee, sat on the General Faculties Council, and been a member of the Student Governing Board of SAMRU prior to her election.

Her goals for the year focus on a few key issues for students at MRU: WIFI, making tuition affordable through government advocacy, scholarships and grants, and reducing costs such as textbooks. Mental health and safety of students is dear to her heart, and she is working towards fostering a better community at MRU.

She has a comfy couch in her office, which is always open and welcome for students who want to chat!
