Eli Ridder | Report

There are three University of Guelph-Humber candidates vying for the IGNITE vice presidency to represent the university but only two gave an interview to The Avro Post — the other candidate is Carmen Duong.

Thus, the only details the students at-large know about Duong is the brief descriptions of her plans on the IGNITE website and any information gleaned from the candidates at the Mix and Mingle election event over a week ago.

On her candidate page, Duong says she wants to advocate for three initiatives: Make student lives on campus “more comfortable [and] enjoyable”, help develop skills students don’t learn in the classroom and improve students’ academic experience.

These platform items are identical to at least seven others across the candidates at Guelph-Humber, Humber College North Campus and Lakeshore.

Duong has not responded to multiple requests for an interview or comment. Competitors Saffiya Lulat and Megan Roopnarine went in-depth in interviews earlier.


More details to follow.
