Hi, I'm Charmaine Chinyemba. I am a fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Commerce program and am the VP Internal.

I joined the LBA to help Leder form connections and relationships within the greater business community in Edmonton. In my free time, I like to play soccer, including playing in the King's soccer team, as well as watching Mcdavid, and reading books most people think are boring.

VP Finance: Steven Sypkes
I'm a fourth-year student with the Leder School of Business, and I joined the LBA because I wanted to be a more active member of the school while also learning about business from a different perspective. I enjoy playing golf and hanging out with friends.
