Hello everyone! My name is Clarice Sinohin and I am your President for the year 2017-2018! I will be connecting the international exchange students with their Canadian Asper student buddies! My main responsibility is to ensure that the exchange students are getting best of their student experience here in Manitoba and to also expand Asper students’ global network.
A little bit about my global footprint: I was born and raised in the Philippines, where I lived for the first 13 years of my life. I then moved and lived in Manitoba, Canada with my parents for the past 8 years, and I have visited Kenora, Toronto, and Vancouver. In the US, I travelled to Grand Forks and Chicago. Most recently, I was a part of the study exchange program to Israel this May 2017. Feel free to ask me about this experience and any other questions you may have in general; I will be more than happy to provide you with answers!
I am very passionate about getting to know people from different cultures and I AIM (pun intended) to make sure that this school year will be the best, most enjoyable, and unforgettable year for our exchange students and local Asper students, alike! I am so excited to meet everyone!
Megan Robinson VP of Marketing
Hello! Hola! Здравствуйте!
My name is Megan and I am in my fifth year at the University of Manitoba and my third year at the Asper School of Business. I am majoring in International Business and minoring in Russian and Spanish! I have spent a summer in England digging up artifacts on an archaeological dig, visited Venice and Florence, and golfed all across Canada and the states! I think one of the most beautiful things about AIMS is to be able to share and understand each other's views and cultures, and of course, creating life long friendships with students from around the world! I am here to make your experience here at Asper the best it can be! Please feel free to contact me anytime, and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
Josh Griffin VP of Finance
My name is Josh and I am this year's VP of Finance for AIMS. This year will be my final year of studies at the Asper School of Business where I will dual major in Finance and Marketing.
Although I haven't studied abroad, I have enjoyed traveling to many parts of Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean and parts of Europe including Switzerland, Austria and Southwest Germany where my family is from and some still live.
