Before attending Brock, I was a member of my highschool Student's Council from Gr. 9 through to Gr. 12. In Gr. 12, I was so excited when I was elected as the President of the Student's Council. I also got involved in Peer Tutor during highschool and I absolutely loved it - my experience as a tutor really reinforced for me that teaching was exactly what I hoped to do in my future! Also while in highschool, I had the oppourtunity to be involved with multiple Leadership Conferences throughout Ontario. In my hometown, I was involved with the Interact Club (Youth Rotary Club) and held the position of Secretary. During my 1st Year at Brock, I was briefly involved with the Residence Action Council (RAC) and helped to organize the November event in 2010.
Fun fact: I had the opportunity to travel to Italy and Greece when I
was in Gr. 11. It was one of the most incredible things I have ever done, and they are two of the most beautiful places I have ever been!
Years with FIL: Since October of 2010
The Foundations in Leadership Practicum Series is a great way for individuals to begin developing or improve upon their leadership skills. It's a great way to to get involved with the Brock community and a fun way to meet other Brock students! :)

I am part of a society at Brock called Brock Leaders Citizenship Society, Outside of Brock; I worked for three years as a Peer Health Leader for my local health unit to raise awareness about the campaigning from the Tobacco Industry targeting youth and the harmful effects of all Tobacco Products. I also ran an initiative which caused the city to successful create a smoke-free playing fields by-law. In addition, I was the leader on many types of council, I was a Peer Mentor for my school, and the team captain of a few teams throughout my elementary and high school years.
Fun Fact: I am a very tall person who has a slight fear of heights!
Years with FIL: This year will complete my first full year for working with Foundations.
Foundations is a great opportunity for individuals to network with other leaders in the Brock community, gain insight knowledge how about to be a more effective leader and learn tools that will help you have more positive interactions with people currently in your life and those people you have yet to meet. Finally Foundations provides you with the foundation of skills needed to be successful in school, your career and your life.
