Kia ora, bwanji! This year I’ve loved serving as your WSU Vice-President, and I’d love to continue this mahi but this time as your WSU President. I’m an Afro-Kiwi gal studying Law and Finance. When I’m not putting hard mahi into my conjoint, you can catch me hitting a new deadlift PR at Unirec or jamming to afro-beats (ayyyeee), spinning yarns or chowing down a donburi at Bongo. I have been on the WSU Board for the past two years […]...
This year the WSU elections are looking a little different as we continue to face the realities of a campus moving between COVID levels. With only seven director candidates on the ballot each one of them will be part of the board in 2022 so the returning officer said an election for those positions were not required.
However, we are asking you to vote for the WSU President, the Vice-President, and the Vice-President Māori positions. We also decided that while Māhia Smith is running uncontested for the Vice-President Māori role she remains on the ballot . We believe Māhia's role is a key one for the WSU and we can't think of a better way of showing our fantastic new leadership team they all received a mandate.
As a public service we are posting the bios, videos, and photos of all candidates here with links to their social media so whether you are deciding on a new President and Vice-President or getting to know Māhia and the rest of the 2022 directors we hope you find what you are looking for.
