Hi, my name is Zoe Dumouchelle, and I am a third-year Disability Studies and Social Work student. I am the 2022-2023 Co-President of D.S.S.A. I am excited to work with my peers in making the University of Windsor a more accessible and inclusive environment!
Hi everyone! My name is Katerina Muscedere (she/her), and I am currently in my fourth year of Social Work and Disability studies. I have always had a passion for advocating for individuals with disabilities. I have joined this group to make sure everyone gets the support that is needed. I am very thankful for this opportunity and cannot wait to make a difference!
My name is Princess Kona Banya .I am a first-year student in Social Work Pre and Disability.
I am a mother of four kids. Since I immigrated to Canada two years ago with my family my previous field of work was logistics. I was motivated by my last child who is a special need to study this course. I will like to help especially people with disabilities and more so parents with kids with disabilities who may be having troubles dealing with them as it can be a bit stressful sometimes . Also to look after for social and welfare needs of Canadians. During my free time, I like cooking.
Hello! My name is Mia Ennis, and I am a fourth-year student in the combined Social Work and Disability Studies program. This year I will be holding the position of 4th year representative of D.S.S.A. I strive to continually advocate for accessibility at the University of Windsor for all students. I am excited to support students, learn from others, and fundraise this school year!
My name is Anna Jagoe, and I am the Social Work and Disability Studies Representative for D.S.S.A for the 2022-2023 academic year. This will be my second year being a part of D.S.S.A and my first year being an executive member of the team. I first joined the Disability Studies Student Association because I wanted to have the opportunity to meet people in my program who share some of the same interests that I do. I live with cerebral palsy, a physical disability that has impacted my life in many ways. It has allowed me to have a passion for accessibility and prompted me to desire a life where I can help ensure everyone has equal access to everything. Joining D.S.S.A was a great decision to start working to achieve my goals. The association does terrific work within the Windsor-Essex community, and I'm very optimistic that we will continue to do so this upcoming year. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the Social Work & Disability Studies program, and I will do my best to get you an answer!
My name is Christina Pacitti, and I am a fourth-year student in Psychology & Disability Studies. I have been a general member of DSSA since I began my schooling at the University of Windsor. It has been an amazing group that contributes to the special needs community and promotes inclusivity in society. Since I have a sibling living with Down syndrome, I have always felt the need to support her and show the world all she can do as an individual! My hope for the 2022-2023 school year is that DSSA continues to impact Windsor-Essex families and make a difference for the local community. I am most excited about the Rock Your Socks event in March for World Down Syndrome Day! I look forward to buying some fun, colored socks to show my support for individuals living with Down syndrome and celebrate the wonderful individuals they are!
My name is Ashley (she/her) and I'm in my second year of the disability studies and psychology program.

In addition, I want to be a strong member of the community and do what I can to make UWindsor an accessible place for everyone, regardless of their needs. I am excited to fundraise this year!
