Hi there! My name is Jassim Naqvi and I am a fourth-year medical biochemistry and economics student at UBC Okanagan. I am an incumbent and returning Senator-At-Large serving the Okanagan Senate and have worked with the UBCSUO on various matters since my first year, most recently as the Student Senate Caucus Representative to the UBCSUO Board of Directors (2018–2019) and as the AVP Finance and Operations for the 2017-2018 academic year. On the Okanagan Senate, I’ve served on the Appeals of Standing and Deferred committee and the Building and Resources Committee.
I have worked on previous events for the UBCSUO Expo (2015-2019), the UBCSUO ACC Night (2018), Eid-Diwali (2015-2017), Age-Link, Harmony UBCO, administrator of the UBCO–Class of 2018/2019/2020 groups as well as being an advocate and supporter of the BC student loan interest elimination campaign. One of my strongest qualities is being able to understand, adjust and help create space for new policies/protocols whilst ensuring that timeline wise, matters are conducted as swiftly and promptly as possible.
