Sustainability Champion Award
Bachelor of Arts
The most important lesson I learned during my time at Concordia was finding my true self. I was always the quiet person who sat in the front of class, took notes and kept to myself. I knew I had drive and ambition, but my shyness held me back until friends convinced me to get involved in student politics in 2020.
Since then, I have held positions as VP finance and president of the Political Science Student Association (PSSA), Concordia Student Union (CSU) counsellor, board member of the Sustainability Action Fund and a volunteer for the Climate Emergency Committee and CEED Concordia.
Some accomplishments include writing the first-ever sustainability policy for the PSSA, helping to plant 250 trees in the east end, advocating for free, sustainable and accessible menstrual products on campus and motioning for the first-ever mural festival at Concordia.
Over two years, I held close to 20 positions at school organizations, gave back to the students and community at large, while maintaining an A- average. Getting involved in student politics at Concordia made me find my true self, and it’s only the beginning.
