Irmak Will Do Good

In life, everybody has a purpose, and we all do what we want and have to do so according to our dreams and beliefs. It didn’t take me long to notice what the purpose of my good friend Irmak was. She is fighting for the greater good. Ever since she came to Concordia University she had this spark in her eyes, this need to help and this hunger for the righteousness. The best part of all is that she didn’t think about herself only, but about all students who would benefit from it, including those who think the same way she does but don’t have the power or courage to get involved. There aren’t enough words to explain how great of an individual and candidate she is.

Irmak Bahar is a person very straightforward, patient, persevering, but mostly she is a listener. In my opinion, this is the number one quality every candidate should have. You might be an elected president, but if you do not listen to the people you are speaking on behalf of, what are you doing? What Irmak does is listen to students to know what she could do FOR them. After all, representing students means portraying their wishes and ideas.

I have never been into politics, and frankly I have always hated it. Thus, it is very surprising that I am as involved as I am with the CSU elections. Though I am doing it for a good reason; I have faith in Your Concordia and know that they could bring the Concordia Student Union to a better place. I have met some of the people from this incredible team and learnt so much from them. Together they would change CSU’s image for the better and give people interest into knowing more about this union that is representing us all. On top of that, with Irmak by their side they really have nothing to worry about.

On March 29, 30 and 31, I hope people are going to make the right decision and think about all the greatness, help, and wishes the next student union could bring them.

Will next year’s student life be better and wiser? Well…VOTE Your Concordia!
