Headshot of Yewoe Sackey-Forson

Oki! My name is Yewe Sackey-Forson I am a fifth year student pursuing a bachelor's degree in Chemistry with hopes of one day becoming a chemist. It is with immense pleasure and passion that I am re-running for Vice President Student Life for the ULSU. I describe myself as a hardworking and committed student who is passionate about student engagement, development, and overall student happiness while on campus. Over the few years that I’ve been at the University of Lethbridge, I have gotten involved in the campus community through volunteering at events and activities, planned and facilitated successful social events both on and off campus as well as participating in clubs and other campus happenings. This past academic year, I have been blessed with being the ULSU Vice President of Student Life, trying my absolute best to cater to students and clubs on campus. This has been an eye-opening year and I want to use another year to accomplish my goals in bettering the student experience. When I was younger I had an interest in event planning, I have organized and hosted birthday parties and bbq’s. In 2018 I planned a youth event for the Ghanaian Canadian Association of Calgary and in 2023 I planned and hosted Ghana Independence Day party. My experience in event planning has increased my awareness in creating events and has also equipped me with the knowledge needed to gain student engagement while working to successfully develop the student experience. If given the opportunity, I will ensure that the student population will be catered to as needed.

What do you know about the position you are running for?

What are some of the initiatives you would like to implement if you are elected?

My platform will always be student focused and centered around transparency, engagement and commitment to you, the students. It is my hope that if re-elected as the Vice President Students Life, to work tirelessly to continue to improve the student experience here at the University of Lethbridge, make an environment that is inclusive and community based, where the University of Lethbridge students are able to interact and come together. Whether that be through SU events or the various clubs or levy groups we have on our campus. I intend to actively work with clubs and levy groups to ensure that timely and efficient communication is being done and adequate resources are provided to improve our campus community. I believe that I am the ideal candidate for this job because of my drive and passion to create a university that is about students. I, Yewoe Sackey-Forson, am committed to making that happen before I graduate. Leaving a lasting continuing legacy for the university. I am here for a good time but not a long time, so while I am here I want my fellow classmates to enjoy their time as well and be very studious students.
