"I have always enjoyed being involved in the community around me. When I came to Carleton in first year, I didn't know a single person. At that point, joining SBSS Formals Committee the perfect way for me to find my place in Sprott community and to make phenomenal connections. By continuing to work with the SBSS through second year as a director and now as an executive, I can continue to make those connections, all while feeling great about the work I am doing to make sure everyone (including those first years who don't know anyone), can enjoy an experience that supersedes just getting a degree.
Applying to be an SBSS exec has been a long time goal of mine. Watching how much everyone enjoyed banquet and gala last year was so incredibly rewarding. Moreover, after working with such an amazing team, I had no doubt that I wanted to take on a bigger role. The external portfolio is responsible for the most amazing opportunities for students to make connections with professionals and their peers. Needless to say, I am so incredibly excited to be your VP External! See you all in September!"

Stepping into this role, it is my mission to connect more Sprott students with exciting events, with new friends, and with a place they too can call home.

Harry is currently a second year Bachelor of Commerce student concentrating in Finance.
“Being involved in extracurriculars has made these past two years at Sprott so enjoyable. Whether it was JDCC, the Sprott Finance Student Association, DECA, Fall Orientation, or any of the other various organizations I take pride in being involved in, they all offer amazing experiences and even better connections. To me, this is what business is all about. As incoming VP Academics for the Sprott Business Student Society, I look forward to being able to provide Sprott students with opportunities to improve their professionalism, networking skills, and general business knowledge that they can ultimately use as their competitive advantage.
I’m beyond [insert excited synonym here] for next year, and can’t wait to get to know more of the Sprott community! #SprottLove ”

Julia Demarinis, VP Internal
Julia is a second year Bachelor of Commerce student, concentrating in Management.
"In first year I was lucky enough to be introduced to the Sprott Business Student Society (SBSS) as soon as I stepped on to campus. As a new Sprott student, it was nice to be welcomed by a team of friendly faces. Being a part of SBSS and participating in their events has opened countless doors, both personally and professionally. As the new 2017-18 VP Internal, I hope to continue to build on SBSS’s inclusive environment and help provide the Sprott student body with the same experiences and opportunities that I had. I cannot wait to work together with the new skilled executive team to create a year that the Sprott students will never forget! #SprottLove"
