Julia Burnham wins AMS VP Academic

Julia Burnham was elected AMS VP Academic and University Affairs on Friday night.

Burnham, who won against competitors Nick Pang and Vandita Kumar, was also elected as a senator-at-large in the same evening.

Burnham ran on a platform that included supporting the SASC, increasing mental health support on campus and pushing UBC to divest.

She worked under former VPAUA Max Holmes as academic affairs and outreach commissioner for the AMS. As a former Ubyssey writer, Burnham twice covered the VPAUA race for this paper.

Through tears, Burnham shared that she was feeling “good” about her win.

“I’m going to call my mom,” she said.
