Hello friends! A little bit about me for those who don't know, I finished my undergrad in microbiology and immunology and I'll be applying to medical school after this program. My hobbies include novel writing, learning languages and playing guitar. I'm super excited to be here with you all as we discover how the world of business can open up new opportunities and experiences for us. I have strong passions for maximizing potential in both productivity and wellness. My one goal as president is to bring us all together and make this a fantastic year for everyone!
VICE PRESIDENT INTERNAL
THIRUMUGHAM Muthu palaniappan
Coming from a family of engineers, I happen to be a self taught auto enthusiast, and I believe there is something new to learn in each experience. Combining a business degree with my mechanical engineering, I hope to bring in new perspectives and some out of the box solutions. I stand to work with the whole team and support them to succeed in any endeavor they choose to pursue. I’m a dog person, a big foodie who likes to cook, swim, cycle, loves the outdoors, especially the mountains and always find an excuse to take my DSLR out of its bag.
VICE PRESIDENT CAREERS
Throughout my undergraduate studies in Behavioural Neuroscience at UBC, I became passionate about understanding people and how human behaviour shapes the world around us. I hope to apply this understanding of human behaviour within the business world and facilitate business driven goals through doing so. I hope to guide my fellow classmates through their career exploration and help them land in an area they feel excited about diving into. In my spare time you can find me playing sports, walking my dog Lola and trying all the amazing food & beverages Vancouver has to offer!
VICE PRESIDENT FINANCE
After finishing Law School, I decided to take up a new, exciting challenge and take on a Business program. Getting to know the cohort and my experience of being in the Student Council in Law School, I decided to run for the Executive Society! With my strong grasp and interest in Financial matters, I'm looking forward to helping the cohort have memorable events and create terrific memories for all. In my spare time, you can find me either gaming or (virtually) catching up with my friends!
VICE PRESIDENT EVENTS
After completing a Bachelors in Economics from Warwick, I chose to study a Masters in Management at UBC to create a reliable, professional network. Coming from Dubai, cultural events play a crucial role in building a sense of community. I have had the good fortune of connecting with people from all across the globe and getting a priceless glimpse into their traditional celebrations, therefore, beginning my love affair with events. This very interest has led me to conceptualise and organise many events at my university and places of work. As Co-VP Events, I hope to create memories that help our cohort build strong relationships.

Alice Zywert Morales
Constantly seeking new challenges and thriving on empowering others, I decided to pursue the Master of Management at UBC after my BSc in Health Sciences and PDD in Human Resource Management. I have a strong passion for creating positive change in the community and previously worked on research related to Sustainability and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. In my free time, I perform folk dance at multicultural festivals, listen to audiobooks and learn to play new instruments. As co-VP events, I hope to create a welcoming and inclusive environment where people can build meaningful relationships and a strong sense of community!
VICE PRESIDENT HEALTH AND WELLNESS
After years of moving from place to place, I have always found myself interested in the ways that communities band together around values based on health and communal wellness. In light of this, I am committed to building a welcoming environment to facilitate the growth of our cohort's bonds as well as create a healthy, supportive environment for all. In my spare time, you can catch me writing music, standup pieces, recording podcasts and being outdoors!
VICE PRESIDENT INTERNATIONAL
Hello all! I have studied law in my undergraduate, which made many people wonder if I’ll be applying to law school. Working in diverse companies taught me the fun of the business world which led me to this program. I hope to help our cohort and especially international students to have a better experience throughout this program. In my free time, I usually enjoy video games, play and watch sports!
