Hello! As a HBA3 dual degree candidate in business and nutrition, I am so excited to spend my last term being a part of SICC. I cannot wait to learn about everyone’s background and culture, and I look forward to capturing the highlights of your experience here at Ivey. After graduation, I will be travelling Central and South America, so if you have any travel suggestions, please let me know!


Elena Simpson, VP Social Media

I am in my last year of the Ivey HBA program, and I’ll be working in marketing after I graduate and travel Europe for the summer. I am from right here in London, Ontario, but spent my first 2 years of university in New York. In my free time, I love to play volleyball or do anything outdoors! I can’t wait to meet you all, welcome you to Ivey, and be a part of this amazing event!


Aamil Kanji, VP Spirit Cup

I am a fourth-year student in the HBA program with a passion for sports and finance.  When I am not being spirited, I enjoy playing soccer and supporting the best hockey team on the planet – The Toronto Maple Leafs.  I also have the biggest sweet tooth here at Ivey, so please feel free hit me up with any chocolate or candy if you want to do well in the competition.  In all seriousness, I look forward to meeting all our international delegates and I can’t wait to bring you the best event yet!

Hi! I am a 4th year HBA/Health Science dual degree student who is passionate about global health, travel, and corny jokes. I’m super excited to the VP Events for SICC this year – instead of me visiting all these amazing countries, they are all coming to me! I can’t wait to meet all the participants and learn more about their different cultures, languages, and of course, food. Welcome to Ivey and we hope you have as much fun participating as we did planning SICC!

Hi everyone! I’m a fourth year business student at Ivey, interested in technology, basketball, and spontaneous trips to other continents. Although I was born in Canada, I’ve lived in the United States and France so I’m excited to welcome teams from around the world to London, ON. SICC will be a lot of fun, Joseph and I personally guarantee it.
