About the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Coordinators:
My name is Ashley Grenstone, I identify as a trans woman and I am passionate about engaging and coordinating student representation within our University’s structure. Basically I enjoy organizing, so this should fit like a glove, lol.
I am a 3rd year undergrad majoring in Human Rights with a minor in Political Science. During my time at Carleton I have been an exec for several clubs and societies, including the Carleton Firearms Club and the Word Warriors Society. I have previously worked through the university as a mentor for first year students and for high school students. I have also contributed to the visual landscape of Carleton, having designed logos for two programs, and an upcoming department logo.
A bit about my character: I can come off as very nervous or even timid, so bare with me if you happen to approach me and I I look like I’m going to dash for the nearest exit -that’s just my body’s way of trying to play dead. Despite this I am actually quite happy to talk with you.
With all that in mind, I am looking forward to an awesome year ahead for all of us at CASG!
My name is Liban Mohammed and I am a third year student studying environmental studies with a minor in psychology. I have previously served CASG as the representative for Environmental Studies and am excited to continue as the FASS coordinator. Over the past two years I have been an active member of Carleton community and have what it takes to achieve what students need from CASG. I am very interested to help Carleton community and I believe that my background, skills, knowledge and my confident will provide many valuable contributions.
