Our Team

Our talented team of Ryerson Students looking to make an impact.

Olivia Panarese

Executive VP

I am a third-year student at TRSM double majoring in Global Management Studies and Entrepreneurship, and also completing a minor in Finance. My biggest role model has always been my dad, he has taught me so many valuable life lessons and it inspires me the most to become an entrepreneur like him. Aside from my professional career, in my spare time I really enjoy making vlogs and editing eventful moments in my life.

Hadeer Abdelhamid


I am a fourth-year student at TRSM, with an Entrepreneurship and Strategy Co-op major and a Global Management Studies minor. I was previously a brand ambassador on the REA in my second year and coming back as EVP shows how much I believe in this group and love it! I am excited to showcase all that Ryerson has to offer to its entrepreneurial community and really help our future entrepreneurs reach their full potential. Outside of my professional and academic lives, I love to travel and make new connections.

Selena Sousa

VP, Finance

I am a fourth year student in the Accounting and Finance program, I am majoring in Accounting and minoring in Economics. Being a part of REA has allowed me to work with and meet many amazing students at Ryerson that have a passion for entrepreneurship. Having the opportunity to be a part of an amazing team and provide the students with great opportunities is the reason I joined. I'm very excited for this upcoming year!
