Ricardo Souza

Ricardo Souza, FSU President

Hello Fanshawe,

My name is Ricardo Souza, and I am your FSU President for the 2021/2022 academic year. My background is in Social Communication and Linguistics, and this year I concluded the Human Resources Program at Fanshawe College. Being experienced in Corporate Communications, I was able to raise employees’ voices and now I have the opportunity to raise students’ voices in the role of FSU President.

From my first day at Fanshawe, I have embraced amazing projects and successfully held the FSU Advocacy and Communications Coordinator position, which provided me with the knowledge and expertise that led me to the role of President.

My mission is to support you during your time at Fanshawe and make you feel that you belong and are accepted. Within our diverse community, your voice has power, and your ideas have value.

I know it has been a challenging year. We have been navigating through turbulent and uncertain waters and reinventing the way we do things. But I believe that incredible things can be built if we work collaboratively and reconnect as a group.

We are students serving students and I am glad to be here for you.

Tanushree Prasad

Tanushree Prasad, FSU Advocacy and Communications Coordinator

Hello Falcons!

My name is Tanushree Prasad and I will be your Advocacy and Communications Coordinator for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Being a Digital Marketing Professional previously, I believe that there are 3 essential C’s in our lives: Collaboration, Communication and Compassion. When I started my journey as a Business Management student in Fall 2020, I saw the same beliefs resonate throughout the Fanshawe student community.

For the same reason, I stand in front of you to help make your experience at Fanshawe as memorable as it has been for me.

My goal is to be your go-to person for any difficulties, concerns or issues that you may face.

I am always here for you, so feel free to drop by or say hello. Let’s make this year better together!
