WELCOME TO THE 2023 NCSAC ELECTIONS
MEET THE 2023
Voting ballots will be emailed to all NC students starting on March 13th, 2023
NCSAC Presidential Candidate
Sofiia Kutiepova was born in Ukraine. She has a Master's Degree from Kharkiv National University in the field of General Biology and a Certificate in Landscape Design. She is currently a student of Environmental Management and Assessment Program while also serving as Director of Environment and Horticulture for the Niagara College Student Administrative Council.
However, Sofiiia's life and professional experience is much wider. In Ukraine, she worked in the tourism business, as a landscaper, owner, and account assistant at Doctor Dress company, and in Canada, as assistant manager of Tim Hortons in St. Catharines, Ontario.
What is important: each of these positions required Sofiia’s empathy, the ability to resolve conflict situations, working closely with a wide range of people, coordinating their activities, using a wide variety of forms of management, planning, and promoting new ideas. In other words, the creative solution to organizational, logistical, and administrative problems is her element. If you cast your vote for Sofiia, these skills can ensure that your voice is included in all decisions made by the NCSAC.
Sofiiia Kutiepova lives in St. Catharines, Ontario, and has two sons.
Sofia about herself:
“My main message: We solve problems together. This applies to the educational process, leisure, everyday life on campus, personal difficulties, social environment, and communication with college authorities - literally everything that makes up student life. Ideas are in the air, but they don't belong to one person. Everyone must be heard. In the foreground - purposefulness and a creative approach.
I also want to appeal to students from other countries. Friends, like many of you, I come from a country which is sorely lacking in peace and social stability, justice, and the supremacy of law. Canada has all this, but the problem of alienation, which inevitably arises in dealing with people of a different culture, exists one way or another. This is part of my experience, the difficulties that I have encountered. That is why overcoming emotional and cultural barriers for all college students is one of the most important tasks that I set for myself”.
