President - Amanda Hills Hello friends and fam! I’m Amanda, and I am so honored to serve as your President for this year. I’m in U3 studying Honours Political Science with a minor in Philosophy. I’m originally from Boston, but don’t worry, I don’t care that much about the Bruins. The PSSA has been my home away from home these past three years, and I am so excited to give back to the association that has given me so much. I hope to foster an inclusive and welcoming poli sci community where everyone feels supported and accepted. I like to shake things up, so expect some big changes coming your way!  I look forward to getting to know you all at BdA, SNAX, and any other place that sells cheap beverages. Please reach out at president@mcgillpssa.ca if there is ever anything I can do for you, and give a wave if you see me on campus!

VP Internal – Magali Vennin Hello everyone! As perhaps guessed, I'm Magali [pronounced Ma-guh-lee], French/Canadian (the dash is important) poli sci enthusiast. U2 in political science and economics, the PSSA had an important impact on my McGill experience last year: beyond providing an answer to all academic related questions I had, it gave me a great opportunity to meet very interesting people who were fuelled with ++ conversations! Being elected VP Internal of this amazing association simultaneously bolsters my motivation to represent my fellow poli sci friends while contributing to the PSSA's well being. I hope I'll get to meet plenty of you and will be able to help wherever I can  friendly hugs, Magali

VP External – Liam Kirkpatrick Hi! My name is Liam Kirkpatrick and I will be PSSA's VP External for the 2017-2018 school year. I am entering my last year in the honours stream of political science, with minors in International Development Studies and Urban Studies. I'm happiest with a camera in my hand or riding my bike. I'm incredibly excited to have the opportunity to serve the McGill community, and hope to branch out further with other groups in Montreal. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch at external@mcgillpssa.ca, or catch me around campus or sitting in the Humble Lion. Can't wait to make 2017-2018 the PSSA's best yet!

VP Communications – David Wainer Hi everyone! My name is David, and I can’t wait to get to know all of you as your VP Communications this year! I am from Calgary, and I am currently in U3 majoring in Polisci and minoring in History. These are some of the things I love: the Calgary Flames, Obama’s summer playlists, and pun jokes. This year I want to increase PSSA’s accessibility and camaraderie and I can’t do it without all of you! We will also bring our amazing professors closer to us and include them in our poli squad. Here’s looking forward to a great year together!   Please come find me if you see me on campus to chat, or contact me via Facebook/Instagram/snapchat (don’t have twitter #notsorry)
