international students’ representative

ebenezer nwogu

Hi, my name is Ebenezer Nwogu and as a 3rd-year labour Studies student, I am well aware of the issues that many international students are facing at the moment. Apart from studying, I enjoy being active, playing Ice hockey, or cooking. I am running for this position because I am willing to do what is needed of me if I become the international student representative and I would be happy to help others and hopefully improve the situations of many of our students, as best as I can. 

Syed Irtaza Hussain Naqvi

Born and raised in the United Arab Emirates, my
introduction to life as an international personal has been there since day one. I was born a third
culture child and thus understand what international students face every day away from their loved
ones. My biggest achievement is my post as International Alumni Student advocate for my own
school in UAE, where I helped aiding other third culture children across the GCC with the issues and challenges they face as international students. My hands on experience and part-time work have given me the ability to understand how to truly help people by having an open ear for their
problems with the knowledge and experience to assist them. These skills through the years have
given me a strong leadership foundation and skills that I will use to assist international students even more effectively. I Am aware of the problems we face and look forward for your trust to ensure you have the right example to lead you. Reach out to me at naqvisi@myumanitoba.ca to know more about my policies.
