Distance learning,high rates of unemployment and scarce resources has pointed out the economic and educational gaps in many of the lives of NSCC students. One of her main goals as your next president will be to assist in the reduction of personal and class expenses as it pertains to your education. In addition to this she will work hard to make sure that the wants and needs of students AND faculty are met and amplified. She doesn't only believe in speaking change but most of all making it happen. She wants you to know that as President YOU the student body will be her main priority. If you want someone with a proven work ethic, proven ability to see things through and most of all someone who enacts positive change vote Zahriyannah!

Hi, My name is Gabriela (Gaby) Garcia, and I'm in my third semester at NSCC studying. I am currently studying History. In the future, I plan to specialize in European History. While studying at NSCC, I have been a part of MASSPIRG, Environmental Club and STEM Club. At NSCC I have felt welcomed and have enjoyed my student experience.
As president, I strongly believe that every student is important to the NSCC community. I am committed to being a positive leader for you, a leader in which everyone is reflected. True democracy is possible when everyones voice is heard and taken into account. Your opinion and ideas count no matter how big or small you think they are. I want all of you to see me as someone you can trust and talk to about your concerns. The times we are living in are times of uncertainty. However, that should only give us more reasons to raise our voices and unite despite the distance that separates us.
Hello! My name Elijah Alouidor, In my third semester at Northshore studying to Business Administration. I have had the privilege of working as a work study for student engagement which has made me engaged in activities and roles in the school. I am also currently serving as the president of the M.A.L.E.S. Club. My time at NSCC has been a great experience thus far.
I believe this is a role for an individual who has a good understanding of what the students want and need to strive in an educational institution. This is a great opportunity to put not only mine but OUR input as a student body of what we want! Let's have a great and exciting year that consists of what we need to strive and succeed.

Vice President of Academics
My name is Olalekan Adeyeri, as V.P. Of Academics, I hope to utilize my personal experience along with input from you, the student body, to find and implement completely new approaches that the V.P. Academics can aid in increasing student success. I hope to do this through a myriad of approaches. First, by working with our school’s academic success counselors and encouraging increased access to academic success strategies that students may not be aware of. Secondly, promoting real-life learning opportunities that create a passion for learning, through practical applications of the same concepts we’re taught in classes. Finally, and most importantly, given these rapidly changing times, I hope to increase the connection between the student body and North Shore Community College’s academic leadership, through my experience in user research, to develop a way of more rapidly getting student feedback, which would allow for policies that really help students.
Ultimately, my hope as V.P. Of Academics is to empower and guide students towards better outcomes. Thank you!
