SAA Election Candidate Bios
Chief Operations Officer (COO)
Hey! My name is Jacob Anzivino and I am running for the COO in the SAA. I studied at the University of Ottawa for 2 years before coming to Sheridan. I am in love with the advertising program, and would like to be on the SAA so I can get people to share my passion for the program. I am ready to take on the role and any challenges that come with it. I will ensure that everyone knows what is going on with the SAA and try to be transparent as possible. I have been very involved with extra opportunities with Sheridan. Most notably, the HAVAS challenge that happened last year. Thanks for the read and please vote me into the position of COO of the SAA!
Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)
I am Krittika Malhotra, a passionate 2nd year Advertising and Marketing Communications student. I wish to put my knowledge of advertising and marketing into practice and contribute to my course by aiming to provide students sharing the same passion with easy access to different opportunities. Therefore I am standing for the position of Chief Marketing Officer. Now all I need are your votes and your support.
My name is Zachary Lata and I am currently on my second year at Sheridan College for the Advertising and Marketing program. I will be running for the Chief Marketing Officer position in the Sheridan Advertising Association elections. Through social media and my circle of friends, I am better known as Zachee. In my free time I enjoy connecting with others, whether it may be dancing at a concert or surrounded by nature.
I value integrity, courage, and independence due to my upbringing. As well, I do believe that teamwork is the foundation of education and in the advertising and marketing industry. With this in mind, I believe that I am the most qualified candidate for the position. I aspire to be a coordinator and project manager in the industry. I will continue to strengthen my skills and strive for excellence in both my education and my career.
Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
I am a second year student in the Advertising and Marketing Communications program and I really enjoy it. I have decided to participate in this election as I think it’s very important to gain some experience outside the classroom. Also, I am very excited to meet new people and hear their stories about success in the Advertising/Marketing field.
Industry Connections Chair
My name is Shara Khan and I am running for Industry Connections Chair. I’ve spent the summer working with many companies such as Microsoft, Coca-Cola, and Dairy Farmers of Canada, through a third-party marketing company called Mosaic. I believe I have the experience and new connections within the marketing industry that would be best utilized if elected to ensure that the students of Sheridan advertising program not only have fun building connections of their own but are also confident towards taking that next step after graduation.
My interest in advertising started a few years ago after graduating from the Graphic Design program at Mohawk College. The work that agencies were doing was fascinating and that drove me to start at Sheridan. The last two years here have been an amazing learning experience and I want to get the most out of my last year in the Advertising program.
Fundraising Committee Chair
My name is Patricia Quijano. I am currently in third semester of the Advertising and Marketing Communications program as an aspiring Account Director. I like to think of myself as a strategic and creative thinker. Some of the things that I enjoy doing the most is organizing, eating and meeting new people – which I believe is very beneficial as the Fundraising Committee Chair. My organization and interpersonal skills gives me confidence in managing a team, and my love for creativity and food helps me come up with countless ways to get everyone to participate at fundraising events. My hobbies include reading, drawing, and managing my blog/website!
