Accommodating the specific needs of each science department is a challenge for SciSoc, and one I hope to solve by allocating additional resources to our departmental societies. These clubs, often operating on limited budgets, are the backbone of our community, yet they face significant obstacles in realizing their full potential. By increasing funding and enhancing support for these clubs, we can empower them to frequently host larger, more impactful events tailored to the specific needs of students in each program.

Asfiya Aziz (She/her)


Hello! My name is Asfiya, and I am the current Creative Wellness director of Sci Soc. 

I am passionate about physical and mental health, and I used my role to initiate two recurring events for the school year, where I ran a meditation space, as well as a running club. These two events were quite successful and have been asked to be run again next year! I hope to use the knowledge I have gained to help positively impact the Carleton science community. I understand the importance of wellbeing and I hope to work once again in a team to promote it.

Haiden Alain (He/him)


If elected as VP Wellness, I will hold innovative and inclusive wellness-focused events throughout the year and ensure that they are well advertised. The wellness principles for events will be founded from a holistic and evidence-based perspective. Keeping in mind the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusivity, I vow to use my own knowledge to better the science community, as well as uplift others’ unique perspectives to foster a sense of community and resilience. From adventures across the canal to mindfulness workshops in the library, my events will be fun and relaxing. All in all, I vow to work for the wellness of all science students at Carleton.
