Name: Lily Akagbosu
Lily joins the CUSA team for the 2018-2019 year as VP Student Issues. You probably know her from the CUSA International Students’ Centre, where she worked on events such as the International Student Gala and Culture Fest. Being an international student herself from Lagos, Nigeria, Lily understands that students’ concerns go way beyond academics. Thus, her policy priorities this year range from adding more financial support, mental health support, and physical health support, in addition to teaming up with other student groups to combat campus sexual violence.
