Christine Lin

Student Trustee

My name is Christine Lin, I am a grade 11 student from Newmarket High School and I am thrilled to be your YRDSB Student Trustee for the 2020-2021 school year! My passion for elevating student voice began in grade 10, where I joined my school’s student council, found many like-minded students, and began making changes within my school. I expanded my involvement in the community through co-founding an organization and directing community events to raise awareness surrounding mental health and its importance among students. Then, I found purpose through the York Region Presidents' Council (YRPC) and realized the power the student body possesses and the strength of the ever so growing student voice. During my term, I will be dedicated to implementing more mental health resources at schools, making the YRDSB budget more transparent, promoting equity and inclusivity through step-by-step initiatives and opening up an anonymous suggestions forum to assure that no voice is being left unheard.
