Katyayini Thakur

Katyayini Thakur, FSU President

I am Katyayini Thakur, the President of the Fanshawe Student Union, for the 2020/2021 academic year.

Born and brought up in New Delhi, India, I am a physician by profession. I went to medical school in China, where I was elected as the Cultural President, AHMU (2010-2011). At Fanshawe, being elected as a Director on the Student Administrative Council last year, helped me gain invaluable insight and perspective on what the FSU can do for students.

My primary goal for this year as President is to increase accessibility to the Fanshawe Student Union and enhance communication channels between the College Administration and the students. Additionally, other areas of focus would include; improving student involvement in FSU events as well as creating more job and volunteering opportunities on and off Campus.

I am passionate about serving people and like to stay actively involved in the community. I will dedicate my heart and soul into providing all of you with a fun and meaningful student experience here at Fanshawe.

Ricardo De Souza

Ricardo De Souza, FSU Advocacy and Communications Coordinator

Hello Fanshawe!

My name is Ricardo De Souza, a Business Human Resources student, and your FSU Advocacy & Communications Coordinator for 2020/2021.

Having graduated from Social Communication and holding a Masters in Linguistics, I believe the human essence lies in improving ourselves and transforming, through language, the society in which we live. That is why I am here, to lend students voices and to help to create positive experiences for all students at Fanshawe.

I believe that incredible things that can be built when you work collaboratively, especially in an academic environment that values their students and understands that the College overall will be stronger working together.

I am thrilled and honoured to be on-board with the incredible FSU team and I look forward to meeting you soon.

My door is always open, please feel free to say hello or stop by to chat.
