Mirari is a Grade 10 student from St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School who will begin her two-year term on August 1, 2023. She joins the current Student Trustee Kate Sontag, who will be serving for her second year. The student trustee is selected by the Student Senate. The Senate is made up of a group of student leaders from all nine of the Catholic high schools in SMCDSB.

Mirari presented to the Student Senate and was selected from eight qualified applicants who put their names forward as candidates.

Mirari’s leadership skills, honed through participation in several organizations, will serve her well. Most notable are her roles in her school's Social Justice Club, and Heritage Club. Her volunteer efforts further demonstrate her dedication to service.

Principal Ann Sheehan expressed admiration for the new Student Trustee. “Mirari is an outstanding young citizen of our community,” she said.

In her application package, Mirari states: "I want to be someone who has a positive effect on my peers. I want to be able to speak for those who are unable to."
