Student Voice

Our members and associates are why we exist.

Our student associates are the future of our member professions and the association; so we really care what you think.

We stay plugged in to what you need from us through the Director-Student. The Director-Student is an SAC student associate who has been elected to represent student associates on the SAC Board of Directors. 

Representing the interests of student members across the country is a large task — and the Director-Student is still a student herself — so she is supported by a team of Student Reps from each school. 

As a student associate, you have the opportunity to lead the trajectory of your national professional association by running for one of these rewarding and prestigious positions. 


Your 2022-2023 Director-Student

Danielle Busayong (University of British Columbia)

Danielle is a Speech-Language Pathology student at UBC. She is passionate about intersecting activism with the SLP and audiology fields to advocate for anti-ableism and anti-racism in practice. She is interested in pediatrics and speech sound disorders. Danielle runs an informational Instagram dedicated to challenging perceptions in the field (@dictionwithdani.slp). With her avid interest in intertwining activism with clinical practice, she served as a panelist for California State University Sacramento’s R.A.I.N.B.O.W. club’s event to share her perspective and experience on the growing Neurodiversity-Affirming movement. She has always been eager to be involved in her community, and established a summer language program for under-served populations at a local community centre.
