Our Peer Leaders


Hey everyone my name is Amanda! I'm currently in my fifth year majoring in Communications with a minor in Business and a certificate in Liberal Arts. I've completed three co-op terms (two of which at SFU) and I also work for SFU as a Student Information Assistant. Fun fact: I'm in a fraternity called Alpha Kappa Psi! It's co-ed, so it's not just for guys. In my free time I'm a huge fan of fitness - my two favourite things to do are kickboxing and weightlifting.


Theresa is a highly motivated international student in Communication major and Interactive Arts and Technology (IAT) minor. She is passionate about working with the community and dedicated to supporting fellow FCAT schoolmates from a student perspective. As an enthusiast for community engagement, she volunteered as a Workshop Coordinator in SFU TD Community Centre, Student Ambassador, and Welcome Leader. Theresa currently serves as a Community Engagement and Digital Communication Coordinator at SFU Career and Volunteer Services, and Creative Coordinator at Communication Student Union (CMNSU).


With five years of Communication studies under her belt, Silke has ensured a dynamic undergraduate both in and out of the classroom. From producing horror films in class in CMNS 226, Learning R Programming Language in STAT 260, to creating a LinkedIn social media strategy for SFU Publishing in PUB 355, her studies have all complimented her CMNS knowledge. Aside from her studies, Silke has volunteered as Program Manager for Young Women in Business (YWiB), and Portfolio Manager for the International Association of Business Communicator’s BC Chapter (IABC/BC), and ran for Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) Faculty Rep and is therefore, well adverse in all the exciting pathways SFU offers for Communication students. As the current Education Outreach, Promotion, & Recruitment assistant, she will be up to date on all things CMNS and is always happy to be of help.
