Meet the Executive Team

President: Hey! I’m Omar and I am the president of the UWO Fencing Club for the 2023-2024 school year. My favourite weapon of choice is foil but I enjoy practicing with every weapon. I have been a part of the Fencing Club for the last 2 years and love introducing people to this amazing sport. Can’t wait to meet all of you!

Vice President: Hi! My name is Swapnil and I'm the new Vice President of the fencing club. Apart from fencing, I like to fish and eat sushi. Come join the fencing club to be a part of our family!

VP Finance: Hello everyone! My name is Omer and I will be the upcoming VP Finance for Western’s Fencing Club. I am heading into my 4th year in med sci specializing in physiology and pharmacology. A fun fact about myself is that I went on my first plane ride when I was 10 days old. I hope to have a great time with all of you next year.

VP Communications: Hi, I’m Alex! I’m VP Comms for this year, and will be the one behind the club’s email communications. In my fourth year taking Music (with biology minor), I’m interested in anything to do with Languages, Film, Law, and music of course (fun fact: I can also play over 100 Imagine Dragons songs on guitar).

VP Socials: Hi, my name is Arya, and I’m the VP Social of the fencing club! I’m a fourth year in the medical sciences program, and I’ve been fencing for the past year now. I’m extremely excited to work with our team and meet everyone, and hopefully have some amazing tournaments in the year!!

VP Equipment: What’s up Western fencing! My name is Haider and I’m the VP of Equipment. My role is to deal with distributing your uniform, blades, helmets, and then just keeping track of them throughout the year. I’m also the one to go to if your equipment is damaged and needs to be replaced. A fun fact about me is that me and some friends built an 11 foot tall snowman on UCC hill last year.
