WHAT WE BRING
Cohort Representatives are a team of eight-first year business students chosen to represent their respective cohort. As part of the Internal Portfolio, they strive to engage with and inform their fellow first year business students of the meaningful experiences available beyond the classroom.
Hey there! My name is Aaron Seyoum and I am super excited to be the Cohort 1 representative for the 2018/2019 school year. I am a happy-go-lucky Finance major who is also looking to get a certificate in Real Estate. I love music and meeting new people so feel free to send me any of your favorite songs or even stop me in the halls just to say hey! When I am not in school I like to play sports- especially rugby and basketball- catch up on current events, and try new foods around Edmonton.
Hey everyone! My name is Marc Blais and I am honored to be Cohort 2’s Rep for the 2018/2019 school year. A little bit about myself… Have a huge passion for travelling. Have currently visited Australia, toured Europe and Central America with hopefully many more trips on the horizon. My goal is to visit every single continent (minus Antartica of course) before the end of my undergraduate degree… that is if I don’t go broke first. When I am not abroad, I am an avid hockey fan, probably either watching an Oilers or Canucks game (yes I know the two don’t mix well), or playing hockey myself. If you ever need to find me there is a very good chance you can spot me at Dewey’s. If you see me around, don’t hesitate to say hi
Hi! My name is Mehak Kaul, and I’m a part of the Business Students’ Association. A little about me, if you ever hear someone rapping in the business lounge or around school, its most likely me because I love talking fast and about anything mostly. I’m also a piano teacher so if you ever need to impress someone by playing the piano, I’m your girl. Most of my time is spent stress eating lettuce wraps and fries from Earls or Cactus Club and the other time is spent meeting new people and talking their ears off. Aside from talking and meeting new people, I am very excited to work with other people from the BSA and really get the opportunity to learn from and with them.
Hey everyone! My name is David Rybak and I am Cohort 4’s Representative for the 2018/2019 academic year. I’m responsible for facilitating communication between the various clubs in the faculty of Business and my peers. In addition, I plan private activities and encourage students within my cohort to become more active and involved to make the best of their time in Business. In my spare time between eating Filistix and class, you can catch me setting and climbing at the Wilson Climbing Center on campus or studying in a corner somewhere. I’m always open to a conversation, so if you run into me or need a belay partner, don’t be shy!
Hey everyone! My name is Martina and I am the Cohort 5 Representative for this year! My main role is to build and foster positive relationships within my cohort. I have a particular interest in strategy, marketing, and event planning, so I dedicate my time building a skill set that is flexible and dynamic. This includes participating in case competitions, enhancing my skills with Adobe Creative Cloud by watching online tutorials, having a Wedding Planning license, and help to organize different events for all first-years and hangout sessions for my cohort to get to know one another. When I am not busy, I am most likely working for the Student Union’s InfoLink or enjoying a latté at Leva Café. If you see me around, come say hi!
Hello everyone! My name is Abby Bruyer and I am the Cohort 6 Representative for the 2018/2019 academic year!

I love traveling, studying at Remedy, and meeting new people! If you see me around campus, feel free to come say hi!
Hello! My name is Aly Ladha and I am extremely excited to be the Cohort 7 Representative for the upcoming school year!

Hey everyone! My name is Morgan and I am the cohort representative for Cohort X! I represent all first-year business students who are not are not part of a designated cohort. Ultimately, I would love to help cohort X win its first ever cohort cup, but more importantly, I want to try to connect as many students as possible. Within the school of business, I am also a part of Alberta JDC West on the Athletics team! Outside of school, you can usually find me drinking coffee, eating pizza, or at an Oilers game. As most of my friends would tell you, I love to talk so don’t be afraid to come to say hi!
