Levi Gregorash | VP Student Life
Levi is in his second year of Aerospace Engineering at Ryerson and this year he is your VP Student Life. Since learning about the moon landing at a young age Levi has had an interest in space and intends to pursue the spacecraft stream. He enjoys searching code for missing indentation and anything Elon Musk, he even skipped a week of school to attend the Falcon Heavy maiden launch. His most exciting experiment involved programming a Raspberry Pi to log temperature, barometric pressure, and HD video while ascending 30km in a weather balloon. Unfortunately, this balloon now lies at the bottom of some rural Manitoba pond and has yet to be recovered.
Levi can be contacted at his email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or anytime he is wandering Ryerson lost and confused

Ebtihal Metwally | VP Education
Ebtihal Metwally is currently in her third year of aerospace engineering. She is very delighted to be your VP academic for the upcoming school year of 2018-2019. Aviation has been always her passion and her dream field. During her second year at Ryerson, she has been involved with the aerospace course union and obtained numerous experiences in event planning, as well as skills in presentation, communication, and management. Of the many things she would like to accomplish, her focus will be directed toward plans and events that will ensure the involvement of the aerospace community and the academic success of the students. Also, her plans will ensure an insight into the professional world of the aerospace engineering and open future opportunities in the field. This will be done by attempting to bring a certified CATIA CAD program course to all the years of aerospace engineering students. Moreover, creating tutorials for in-demand courses and surveys and bring the students one step closer to the industry by exposing them to the manufacturing plants. To sum up, she will work to achieve these plans and bring the best to the aerospace community.
