My name is Michael Seliske and I am a 4thyear computer engineering student at the University of Waterloo. I grew up in Fonthill Ontario which is branded as “the heart” of the Niagara region, but have spent the past 6 years in Waterloo. I have been involved in various ways within Engineering since 2007 when I attended FYIC as my first conference experience. Since then I have had the opportunity to serve as VP-Communications and IT commissioner of the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES) and VP-External of the Waterloo Engineering Society ‘A’. Through these experiences I have been given the opportunity to attend various conferences across the country, which have allowed me to liaise and get to know some amazing people. I hope that I will be able to continue this within the presidential role and look forward to an amazing year.
VP Communications – Leila Meema-Coleman
Hello everyone! My name is Leila Meema-Coleman and I am the new Vice-President of Communications for ESSCO. I am in second year Mechanical Engineering at the University of Waterloo and within the Waterloo ‘A’ Engineering Society I am currently Communications Commissioner. I grew up in Toronto where I went to the Ontario Science Centre Science School for grade twelve which started my passion for getting involved, out reach, and community. I had an amazing first year at university and am so excited to start my second year and have this chance to work with rest of the executive to make ESSCO this year fantastic!
VP Finance and Administration – David Birnbaum
Oh hey there! My name is David Birnbaum and I am the incoming VP Finance and Administration. I am going into my 2B term (3rd year) of Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I am originally from Vaughan, which is just north of Toronto. I have been involved in EngSoc and ESSCO since last summer, when I was elected VP Finance of Waterloo Engineering Society ‘A.’ If you have seen me at conferences, you know I have a passion for swag, especially patches. That, along with the “unique” haircut I had at my first conference combined to make one of my lesser used nickname simply “Patches.” I am super excited to bring my passion for patches and everything else to ESSCO, and look forward to working with all of you to make ESSCO something to be proud of.
VP Services – Emily Bot
Hi Ontario! As I will be getting to know you all throughout my term as Vice President Services, here is a little bit about me to start us off. I am currently entering my final year of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at McMaster University. Though born in North Bay, the majority of my childhood was spent alongside Michael Seliske in Fonthill, Ontario. I first became involved in my Engineering Society in my third year and just this past year held the position of President. What truly drives my passion for this role is from my experience as an Instructor and Director of Venture Engineering and Science Camp at McMaster University. This role allowed me to impact the lives of a variety of youth and spark their interest in the fields of science and engineering. I hope to be able to develop ESSCO’s current outreach endeavours to create the same impact! Additionally, I look forward to working with the Executive and all of you to develop ESSCO in a manner that supports each of you in your endeavours.
