The Radhoc Committee prides itself on being non-hierarchical - that is, there is no ranking of positions or responsibilities, therefore everyone on the Committee is equal (which is why the list below is alphabetical). Committee Members take on different roles related to their strengths and try to assist others in roles related to their weaknesses, allowing them to learn and develop their own leadership skills, and everyone works as hard as they are able to within their capacity (we are all students, after all).
Ally is a first-year student at Memorial working to do a double major in English and Political Sciences. Ally has been a champion at only one camp previous to joining the committee and hopes to show you can love something even if you join in a little late. While in high school Ally volunteered with the Atlantic girls choir, directed music for Gonzaga's annual showcase, and played for the rugby and cheerleading team. In her free time Ally can be found watching scrubs, singing (usually show tunes), or trying to maintain having pink hair, Ally also can be found competing in public speaking, she has won 5 awards for her speech writing and presenting. Ally is excited to see what her first year on the committee will bring!
Cheyenne is a student at Memorial, she is planning to major in French and minor in Russian and hoping to one day become a lawyer. Cheyenne has been a Champion at five Radhoc conferences and hopes to inspire all new and old champions the way that she was inspired by other committee members. Cheyenne is involved with St. John’s Rotaract, as well as many other organizations in previous years. Cheyenne enjoys doing Water Fitness, volunteering, and badminton, she also spends way too much time at the airport.
Ava is a second year student at Memorial. She was a Radhoc Champion for more conferences than she can remember and is thrilled to be a committee member. In the past Ava has been involved with various social justice groups and committees and she performs with her friends for local seniors homes a few times a year. She is a Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award recipient and has attended many programs and conferences (such as Radhoc, DEEP, MUN^2, Pianofest etc.). In her spare time Ava enjoys reading, music,sports and cuddling with her cat!
Claudine is a soon-to-be-fifth-year Science student at Memorial University just trying to make it through this degree. When she isn't stuck in labs, Claudine can be found dividing her time between Radhoc and the Rotaract Club of St. John's, where she is serving her second term as Secretary. In her limited spare time Claudine can be found sleeping (Science degrees are rough), watching Netflix, listening to music, being exceptionally nerdy (geeky?), petting cats and dogs, and hiking.
Delia is a third year student at Memorial University, she is studying under humanities and social sciences and hopes to complete a double major in law and society and sociology. In her free time she loves to read, hike, kayak, and do just about anything that involves the outdoors! She also loves to volunteer with MUNSAGA ( MUN sexual and gender advocacy) and loves jam out to dad music (classic rock) but most importantly, wishes to learn about how we can change our world one day at a time.
Elea is a third-year student completing an international bachelor of arts as well as majoring in political science and French. Elea has been a champion with Radhoc twice before and has volunteered in the past multiple times at camp. Elea has also been involved in various events around St. John’s including for the past three years helping run Tedx. As well, Elea is part of the French Society and Political Science executive at the University, so clearly she’s a very busy bee 🐝. Elea’s plans for the future as of right now is that she would do some sort of work with a non for profit organization. Elea loves coffee ☕️ (way too much), ✈️, napping, cats 🐈 and llamas. She is very excited to help plan and run the events with the rest of the committee.
Jaxon is a new member of the RADHOC committee and has been a champion for many years before that.

Katie has been on the Radhoc committee for about four years now but has been involved with the organization for a few years prior as a previous champion. She is a third-year student and is studying English at Memorial with hopes to start Music School fall 2019! Eventually, she will be doing an education to teach in primary/elementary schools. Her main instrument is the French Horn and she loves a great cup of coffee. When she’s not busy, she can usually be found watching SVU or The Office, listening to music, getting more coffee, or practicing her horn. Three things you should know about her are 1) She works with kids and will 100% talk to you about all of them and 2) Her mood greatly relies on how much food and coffee she has been fed and 3) turtles are her favourite animal.
Maddie is a second year French and German double major at MUN. She is new to Radhoc, but is excited to be a part of it. She is originally from Nova Scotia, and was involved in her high school AV club, student council, and mentorship program. She has done volunteering back on the mainland and here on the island, and is very passionate about helping others. Some of her interests include knitting, baking, dancing like no one’s watching, and making others laugh. If she could be any kind of reptile she’d be a komodo dragon, because it’s as close to a dragon as you can get.
Maddy is a first year student at Memorial, and is hoping to enter the Faculty of Nursing in the fall. Maddy has been a champion at two RADHOC conferences and is incredibly happy to now be on the committee! When she isn’t studying or volunteering with RADHOC, Maddy can be found reading, hiking, travelling, or singing in her free time.

Michael Thistle is a great committee member. He coaches the provincial rowing teams and was an athlete in the program himself. He loves Radhoc with all his heart and is someone who gets the job done. You can find him at Starbucks daily, either drinking coffee or working! He is always up to for a chat, so at camp, so come say hi! Stephanie rates him 3/10! Cheyenne says 0.5/10!

Of her many hats, Su Alteen's climbing helmet saves her life. Su is studying French and Psychology and Geography at Memorial and enjoyed a calm year at home after a year abroad in Nice (it WAS NICE, thank-you). During those 9 months she visited France, Spain, Finland, Estonia, Germany and Monaco ! She is learning about teaching from working at the Digital Learning Centre as a French TA and volunteering with Radhoc, a youth social justice summer camp and has previously coached rock climbing. Su’s favourite pastime is doing Extracurricular Educational programs such as EXPLORE language camp and Shad Carleton in 2014, back when it was a Valley ! In Su's spare time she pursues painting, drawing, playing guitar & ukulele, reading, watching TedX videos, doing yoga, letter writing and eating sushi. While Su may seem “SMALL” she *may* know how to beat you up, as she’s been studying wrestling and competing regularly in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments; such as where she won 3rd place in the white belt girl’s category at the Championnat de France in Paris - two days after almost dying in AWE from seeing Ed Sheeran live in concert.
Larry Kuzco is a leadership-oriented llama who loves donuts, finding new ways to get his daily caffeine fix, and spreading llama love to llama lovers everywhere. Larry's biggest pet peeve is cat noises at 5AM, but he can be forgiving of this because he loves champions (most of the time anyways). Larry is seeking to enthrall the world with his razor sharp wit, eloquent sarcasm, majestic coat of fur, and his attitude to rival only Beyoncé. Be sure to give his insta a follow for the day to day updates on the adventurous life of Radhoc's Mascot. @larrykuzcothellama
