As a second-year engineering student, I have been involved in many clubs on campus to interact with students and faculty members to help and support the University of Windsor. As a member of the University of Windsor LEAD program (Leadership Experience For Academic Direction), I have volunteered as a community-building mentor for incoming high school students in the faculty of engineering. In this role, my job was to help and inspire students adjust their transition from high school to university by providing bi-weekly meetings about certain key topics that will help them in their first year of university. I have also served on the Board of Directors for Engineering Society, and I have served on the student advocacy committee for UWSA.
Every summer, my goal will be to volunteer as a Community Building mentor and a Girl Up Mentor for incoming high school students. My commitment will help and inspire students to adjust their transition from high school to university by providing bi-weekly meetings about certain key topics that will help them in their four years of university. Not only do I want to help students around campus, but I also want to address concerns and help them voice their opinions regarding any matter.
Within the UWSA board, I will bring positive leadership skills and provide equal and fair opportunities for students around campus. I want to listen to students’ concerns and provide opportunities for students and give positive feedback regarding any issues they have.
UWSA is a platform for student government that represents the student voices around campus. They provide many opportunities for students, from clubs and societies, campus services, social justice campaigns, and student jobs. These opportunities are very important for students getting involved on campus and making their experiences at the University of Windsor more memorable.
