Meet The Team
vidhi bhatt - PRESIDENT
Hi there! My name is Vidhi Bhatt, and I am one of the Presidents of BMYC for this year! I am a Grade 12 student at Turner Fenton Secondary School. For me, BMYC is more than just an outlet to unleash my cultural awareness but rather a safe place for me to gain and learn more about the diversity that Peel and Brampton offer. I absolutely love playing basketball (GO RAPTORS!!!) watching TV shows (Grey’s Anatomy) and I spend a lot of time doing extracurricular activities. I would describe myself as a passionate, outgoing, talkative leader who strives for excellence in all that she does. I am really looking forward to an amazing year with BMYC and can’t wait for all that the council has to offer you and me!
