Katyayini Thakur, FSU President
I am Katyayini Thakur, the President of the Fanshawe Student Union, for the 2020/2021 academic year. Born and brought up in New Delhi, India, I am a physician by profession. I went to medical school in China, where I was elected as the Cultural President, AHMU (2010-2011). At Fanshawe, being elected as a Director on the Student Administrative Council last year, helped me gain invaluable insight and perspective on what the FSU can do for students. My primary goal for this year as President is to increase accessibility to the Fanshawe Student Union and enhance communication channels between the College Administration and the students. Additionally, other areas of focus would include; improving student involvement in FSU events as well as creating more job and volunteering opportunities on and off Campus. I am passionate about serving people and like to stay actively involved in the community. I will dedicate my heart and soul into providing all of you with a fun and meaningful student experience here at Fanshawe. Katyayini Thakur
