Brad Gebhardt

I am Brad Gebhardt. I’m a second year business student who would like to return to the board for a second year. Last year, I was able to make a difference and contribute positively. I look to do more of the same as the RRCSA works to provide the best student life possible. Having attended RRC as a trades and business student, I provide the unique prospective of both distinct sectors of the school. The vocational side and the academic side which are often viewed as totally separate.

I aim to help the RRCSA plan and execute meaningful initiatives during this uncertain time of Covid-19. It is important to me that the RRC students feel supported in this year which will likely be one of the toughest that may ever face.

In closing, I want to make a difference at my school and the RRCSA is the best way to make an impact.

Monika Pichor

Hello Everyone,

My name is Monika, and I am a second-year student in Community Development, in the School of Indigenous Education at Red River College. I am a Métis/Polish-Canadian woman (she/her), born in Selkirk, Manitoba and represent obligations in both my Indigenous culture and immigrant roots.

My passion for community development began in my career with the City of Winnipeg, as a recreation supervisor at Turtle Island Neighbourhood Centre. While working with youth in the North End, I witnessed a great sense of community spirit and joy, as well as a fair share of heartache and challenges. I chose to go into the Social Innovation/Community Development program to learn how to best tackle these challenges and help create sustainable solutions to root causes of poverty in Winnipeg.

I believe I would make a great addition to the Student Association Board because of my experience, education, and enthusiasm for supporting communities. Red River College is our community, and I am committed to seeking equitable, student-led solutions and bridging the gap of reconciliation for Indigenous and newcomer students. I look forward to the opportunity to represent your voices and fight for the causes that matter most to you.

Thank you,

Monika Pichor

Ramanveer Singh Ashan

I am from Punjab, India. I have done my high school diploma from St’s Joshp’ s Convent School in the medal stream. My main courses were chemistry, biology and physics, but my favourite one was biology. I have also done an Intensive English program which helped to get enrolled at Red River College. So I am good at understanding and speaking English. I can speak three languages(English, Punjabi, Hindi).
I like to play cricket a lot, I used to be the captain of a team in my hometown. So, I am working on it to get selected in a cricket team in Winnipeg as well to keep my game skills running. I am an extrovert person and I like to help other people. I used to be the president in high school. I must mention that being president of a school has helped me to improve my management skills because I have faced many challenges to do my study and the board work at the same time. So I am also a fast learner. With my Studies, I have had the experience of working at a mall in my home town where I was assigned to provide customer services and solve any issue from customers. That’s all for now, I look forward to a reply from SAB.
Kindly,
Raman.

Inderjeet Singh Grewal

I came from India, and I was living in Ludhiana state Panjaab. I have done Mechanical engineering from a well reputed college, I was a state topper in diploma, and was hired by a M.N.C. I worked there for two years as a service adviser and I know the burden and duties of an associate and how to handle a team. I had an N.G.O. back in Panjaab which I am currently running from here in Winnipeg. Having a team of more than 30 boys and girls we work for students, provide aid to the needy students in all the forms like fee uniform books etc.
Distributed clothes to over a thousand people and when the state went on an emergency due to floods, we provide food to over 300 families and the list goes on.
In the end, I would like to conclude that I believe in humanity and I loves the nature, we planted over 250 trees and I strongly believe that if I can do this there, then I can do it here too on a bigger scale.
