Namrata Rana

My name is Namrata Rana and I am in my third year of Biomedical Engineering. I am the President of Tetra Ryerson for the 2018-19 year.
I believe it is important to create a positive, inclusive atmosphere where people of all abilities are treated equally. I am grateful for the opportunity Tetra has given me and strive to be able to serve the Ryerson community to the best of my abilities. My team and I are very excited to bring out new projects, workshops and events to students this year and we look forward to creating a more accessible and engaging environment at Ryerson.

I’m Andrew, Tetra’s VP of Internal Communication. I’m a fourth year mechanical engineering student specializing in mechatronics. I’m an enthusiastic and personable individual (or so I’ve been told) who is looking to apply his engineering skills to better the lives of others at home or abroad. My passions reside in entrepreneurship, design, sustainability and social innovation (technology related or otherwise). This will be my third year with Tetra and I’m more excited than ever to be a part of this great team!! My primarily responsibility is to work with and managing the design teams for our projects. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us, I have no doubt it will be exciting, challenging and rewarding! Feel free to reach out if you ever want to talk design, engineering, social innovation or anything else -- anything can happen when minds and ideas meet.  The world is our oyster -- let’s feast!

Sam Mirshahi
VP Marketing

My name is Ginette Hartell and I am in my third year of biomedical engineering and I am one of Tetra Ryerson’s VP of Marketing for this school year. I am eager to help Tetra grow this year in terms of our branding as well as the number of students and companies that we are able to reach with our positive message of inclusion. When I’m not studying you can usually find me playing volleyball, attempting to cook, or FaceTiming with my dogs back home in Ottawa!

I'm Sam and I am one part of our VP Marketing team. I am now in my 3rd year of biomedical engineering here at Ryerson, and after attending many of Tetra's events I was lucky enough to be added to our Ryerson chapter. One of the things I'm looking forward to the most, both as part of Tetra, and in my program, is to take all that we've learned both in, and outside of the classroom, and apply that knowledge to a real world setting

My name is Andrea. I am a 4th year Biomedical Engineering Student and one of the Vice Presidents of Marketing for Tetra Ryerson. My work for Tetra focuses on the management and design of our website. I hope to shed more light on the amazing events and workshops that Tetra has to offer.
