Michelle Chou
Michelle Chou is an International Baccalaureate student attending grade 12 at Bayview Secondary School. Her involvement with students began in previous years, when co-founding and directing initiatives that raise awareness of the marginalised community in the Greater Toronto Area. Michelle has also worked with youth that face financial, physical, mental and language barriers, providing her the importance of listening to all voices. As a strong advocate for inclusivity and equity, she strives to work closely with the York Region President’s Council, the Ontario Student Trustee’s Association and finally, the school board to ensure that all students will have the opportunity to project their opinions. Currently at school, Michelle enjoys playing for her varsity field hockey and ultimate frisbee team as well as empowering students to run for a purpose. Additionally, she is involved with the Bayview’s DECA chapter, music department and prefect organization. In her community, she takes leadership in her squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet program and Youth Nation Alliance, a youth-led non profit. By wanting to reinforce transparency and community between students, Michelle strives to encourage all students to stand up for themselves and their peers concerning their education this year.

Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking.''


Nicho​las Hamzea

Nicholas Hamzea is a Grade 12 International Baccalaureate student at Bayview Secondary School. With his strong passion for equity, mental health, and student advocacy, he has served on his school’s student council and has worked closely with the York Region Presidents Council  for the past 2 years, among other organizations and initiatives. Being someone who strongly pursues his passions, Nicholas is also heavily involved both within his school as well as throughout the community. In school, he is part of the HOSA Chapter, a club dedicated to the field of medicine, as well as the prefect organization. Outside of school, he is heavily involved with his taekwondo academy, where he has been training for 11 years, and at the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, where he works with kids of all ages and abilities. Experiences such as these have opened his eyes to the importance of ensuring that every single person’s voice is heard and as a student trustee, he hopes to improve that through working closely with the students of York Region and with various organizations such as the York Region President’s Council and the Ontario Student Trustee’s Association.

2020-2021 Student Trustees:
Christine Lin North Candidate.jpg

Christine Lin

My name is Christine Lin, I am a grade 11 student from Newmarket High School and I am thrilled to be your YRDSB Student Trustee for the 2020-2021 school year! My passion for elevating student voice began in grade 10, where I joined my school’s student council, found many like-minded students, and began making changes within my school. I expanded my involvement in the community through co-founding an organization and directing community events to raise awareness surrounding mental health and its importance among students. Then, I found purpose through the YRPC and realized the power the student body possesses and the strength of the ever so growing student voice. During my term, I will be dedicated to implementing more mental health resources at schools, making the YRDSB budget more transparent, promoting equity and inclusivity through step-by-step initiatives and opening up an anonymous suggestions forum to assure that no voice is being left unheard.

Hello everyone! My name is Felix Nomerovsky from Vaughan Secondary School in grade 11 and I'm excited to be your Student Trustee for the 2020/2021 school year! My main priority as a student trustee is to make sure we could raise our student voice and school spirit. As a future student trustee, I'm ready to work with YOU to address all your concerns and inquires. A bit about myself, I'm an air cadet part of 283 Woodbridge Squadron with a speciality in marksmanship and aviation. Furthermore, I'm the founder of a political discussion group aimed at decreasing the polarization of politics. As for hobbies and interests, I'm into soccer (former goalkeeper for ORSC), playing PS4, watching Netflix and especially flying! I hope as your student trustee I can bring change that you'll see and be happy about!
