Nobody understands student problems like students do. That’s why we have students in charge. That’s right: students like you, advocating for you. Our Advocates are here to bridge the gap between you and your student union by answering any and all concerns you may have. Check out our current Student Advocates: 

Jessica Carrera

Student Advocate, Humber College

Jessica Carrera is in her 2nd year of the Hospitality Management Program and graduated from the Culinary Management Program in 2022. She has been highly involved on campus with different departments such as SSE and Humber Global, and was also the Chair of IGNITE’s Board of Directors for the 2022-2023 term. Jess’ biggest passions are helping others by getting involved anywhere she can on campus. In her free time she loves being with her two kids, teaching at her local community center, encouraging leadership and confidence, and cooking and eating tacos. Jessica wants to continue learning as much as she can in the hospitality field so she can offer her knowledge to others who feel like they don’t have a future because of where they come from. Jessica looks forward to advocating for students as a Student Advocate for Humber College.
