Hello everyone! I’m Basit Ur Rehman and I’m going into my third year of Bachelor of Accounting (B.Acc) program. I’ve a Bureaucratical/political background and I like getting involved in it as it enables me to learn and enhance my intellectual abilities. I joined the board to serve the Brock community through representation and becoming YOUR voice, I enjoy the fulfillment that comes from giving back the community. Furthermore, Boards are mini-organizations, and it provides a platform to shine and expand my leadership skills. I am honoured for the opportunity to sit on the Board for the year 2021-2022 and it is a great experience to work with such great people to provide the best student experience to you.

Ayushi Bakshi

Program: 4th year, BBA

Hey Badgers! My name is Ayushi (she/her) and I’m in my fourth year of the BBA program. I’ve served as a BUSAC councilor in the past, and I’m involved on campus through various clubs such as the Goodman BSA, Her Campus, and the Brock Niagara Rotaract. 

My main motive to serve on the board is to ensure that accountability and transparency are maintained but most importantly bridge the communication gap that exists between the board and our students. BUSU’s focus has always been to serve you and I’m delighted to work alongside an incredible team to take your student experience to the next level.

If you have any questions about Brock or BUSU, feel free to reach out to me!
