Meet the Exec Team (2023/24)


President: Hussain Alhussainy

My name is Hussain Alaeddin Alhussainy. I have the honour and privilege of serving as your faculty student association president on OASIS. Last year, I held the role of Vice-President External and during my first year with OASIS I had dual directorships in equity diversity and inclusion and non-governmental organizations. I am currently completing my undergraduate honours thesis in political science, conducting research on ableism within the post-secondary institution and the barriers to accommodation and full participation for disabled students. I enjoy being outdoors, theatre, and all things hockey 🏒. I love meeting new people, so please do not hesitate to come say hi if you see me around.

Vice President Internal: Layla Alhussainy


Hello friends! My name is Layla, I’m currently finishing up my last year of a double major in Sociology and Religious Studies, and I am excited to be your Vice-President Internal this academic year.

During my time as a Chief Returning Officer and a Humanities Councillor, the OASIS team’s passion and dedication to serve arts students and enhance their university experience inspired me to become more involved. This year I am responsible for running the office (in the process of relocating), making and distributing advertisements, communications, organization operations, and working with my lovely teammates to ensure our events and services are delivered smoothly. My goals are to make sure arts students’ voices are heard and to ensure resources that assist in students’ wellbeing and academic success are always made available. 

A little about me. I love hanging out with my family and friends, reading, and eating fried chicken. Please don’t hesitate to say hi if you ever see me around! 👋


Vice President Academic: Jayden Blumhagen,

My name is Jayden Blumhagen, and I am in my fourth year of a double major in Sociology and Women’s and Gender Studies. I am your Vice-President Academic of OASIS for the 2023/2024 academic year. As part of my responsibilities as VPA, I am also the editor-in-chief of Crossings, the undergraduate peer-review journal for the Faculty of Arts. Furthermore, I advocate for undergraduate arts students on academic matters that affect them. Last year, I was involved with OASIS an Events director for the VP Outreach and Events and realized how getting involved in student groups on campus makes university more enjoyable. Outside of OASIS, my interests include reading, coffee, finding cool rocks on walks, Gilmore Girls, and human rights law and advocacy, something I have been passionate about since before I started my undergraduate degree.


Vice President Finance : Prishna Sweeney

Hi! I’m Prishna (she/her), Vice President Finance. I’m honoured to be your spreadsheet gremlin this year, doing what I can to support the Arts student community. I’m always open chat if you’d like to talk about linguistics, music, or the Faculty Association Membership Fee


Vice President External: Alex Ballos 

i y’all! I am so excited to be your VPX this year. My name is Alex and my pronouns are she/her. I am a honours double major in political science and women and gender studies. This year, I have been incredibly lucky to have an awesome director team who have helped me out a ton in guiding our past and upcoming events. A little bit more about me, my favourite things to do are hiking and researching! If you ever want to talk, don’t hesitate to reach out ✨


Vice President Outreach and Events:
Nathan Perez


Hello, my name is Nathan. I am a third-year student taking a double major in Political Science and Sociology. I am sitting as the VP Outreach and Events this academic year. My goal is to be an advocate for students in developing transferable life skill, both for their personal and professional benefit—extending the great work of the VPOE before me. As well hosting fun community-based activities for the arts. I am super excited and blessed to be working with such a passionate team this year who are committed in elevating the arts university experience. My hobbies include reading books on political and social theory, exploring, long walks and anything Art! If I spontaneously start ranting about why some random corner chair has so much to offer, I apologise in advance!

Also, a quick shoutout to former OASIS members who have been such wonderful mentors and friends to me during my time as an Events director. They continue to be a steady source of support for me and I have tremendous love for them!
