I am Alexander Hobbs and I am in the fourth year of my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at Brock University. I have been involved in all manner of student life at Brock. I am currently the Research and Policy Coordinator for Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU), a Brock University Students’ Administrative Council (BUSAC) councillor, the Fourth Year Representative to the Political Science Department and an author of three Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance policy papers used to lobby the provincial government on issues relevant to students across the province. In past years I have been the Third Year Representative to the Political Science Department, a Student-At-Large on the External Affairs Committee and Referenda Implementation and Levee Review Committee and the founder and president of Brock National Model United Nations.
In my second year I founded Brock’s first internationally competing model United Nations team. I was in charge of educating students in the basics of international relations and United Nations procedure, and resolution and policy formation. The team competed at the National Model United Nations (NMUN) conference in New York, the largest Model United Nations event in the world, with 5000 students from over 35 countries attending. The event is recognized by the United Nations and the United States mission to the United Nations. Our team placed within the top fifth of teams internationally and was recognized for that achievement in the United Nations Great Hall. I current serve as a consultant for Brock University’s NMUN team, and am working to see the experience instituted as a course as it is in several universities across Canada and the world.
Outside of work and extra-curricular activities, I am an avid hockey fan and player and have an extreme interest in law. As such, I have applied to several law schools and hope one day to be able to pursue a profession in a field of international law. I am excited to have the incredible opportunity to intern with a distinguished firm in the Niagara region.
