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.

Cohort One

Hey guys! My name is Marija and I am the Cohort Rep for Cohort 1, I cannot wait to embrace every moment of my first year in business and create some unforgettable memories. Currently, I am an MIS major. I am passionate about traveling, movies, music and Netflix but you can mostly find me coaching Rhythmic Gymnastics in my free time. If you are wondering why my name is spelled so strange and want to get me all rattled-up, come ask me about Macedonia (it is a real country, I swear)! I am so excited to be a part of the BSA and representing the #1 Cohort out there.

Cohort Two

Hey! I am Brendan and I will be the Cohort 2 rep this year. I am excited to get to know everyone in the ASoB. My job is to act as a form of communication between first year business students and the BSA – informing about events, services, and the Cohort Cup. I am a Finance major, when not studying I enjoy playing sports – such as soccer and snowboarding – and hanging out with friends. You can usually find me in the gym or at Dewey’s shooting a game of pool.

Cohort Three

Hi, my name is Jack and I represent the wonderful students of Cohort 3! Look out for our tight knit group of peers in the future of business! I am beyond excited for this upcoming year and what is to come as a Cohort Rep. I am an Accounting major, Business Economics minor consumed by a love of hockey, basketball, geography, rap, podcasts, rock climbing, and hiking. I have a strong passion for travel, but I love Edmonton more than anywhere else in the world.

Cohort Four

Hello friends! I am Emilie, and I am very excited to represent Cohort 4 as a Cohort Representative! I am majoring in Business Studies as I am interested in many different topics in business. You can often find me on campus drinking excessive amounts of coffee and expressing my discontent about something I will imminently address. When not in school I enjoy hiking, watching ‘The Office’, reading, and spending time with my friends and family.

Cohort Five

Hey everyone! My name is Rohan and I am the Cohort Representative for Cohort 5. I strive to provide quality representation for the members of my cohort, and hope to bring an atmosphere of comfort and inclusivity where members feel free to voice their thoughts and opinions without judgement. I hope Cohort 5 sees me as a very approachable bridge connecting them to the BSA and its many opportunities. When I am not spamming members of Cohort 5 with group invites, I like to play with my dog, binge watch ‘Friends’, or binge watch ‘Friends’ while playing with my dog!

Cohort Six

My name is Katrina and I am delighted to be your Cohort 6 representative for this year! I love Drake, so repping the 6 seems natural. If I am not on the sidelines cheerleading for the Eskimos, you will find me carrying a Redbull (or 30). I hope to help you make the most out of your first year in Business!

Lynette Jack

Cohort Seven

Hi! My name is Lynette and I will be reppin’ for Cohort 7 this year! I am pumped to be part of the BSA and plan events for the cohorts. A little bit about me – when I am not studying or on campus I am probably working at Lululemon selling black stretchy pants, at Earls happy hour,  or lounging with my roommates. My favourite things are steeped tea, bellinis, and ice cream. I am pretty small but if you can find me in the halls come say hi. Hope you all have a great year!

Cohort X

My name is Ashley, and I am so excited to represent Cohort X! My roles will include planning cohort events, attending BSA meetings, and getting to know my Cohort X colleagues. A little about me; I am in my third year as a member of the Panda’s Varsity Tennis team, where last season we won the University National Tennis Championships in Toronto. Playing competitive tennis for over 9-years, and being a member of an athletic team, has taught me about characteristics of leadership, commitment, and dedication to my sport and my team mates. My greatest volunteering passion has been with ISTAR, Institute for Stuttering Treatment and Research. In 2014, I established the Ashley’s Future Voices Fund (AFVF), which offers financial aid for individuals with speech disfluencies under the age of 25, who are unable to afford treatment. Being able to operate my fund has taught me initiative and self-determination, fundraising, and compassion are critical factors necessary for being a strong role model. My aspirations are to become a Chartered Professional Accountant, and become more involved with ISTAR and the applicable boards, to embrace diversity within society.
