The most formative learning experiences I had at Concordia were acquired through work done as a student ambassador for the Black Perspectives Office (BPO) and as a student facilitator at Homeroom, a program out of the Dean of Students Office.
The BPO was such a great experience: tabling, having student lunches and creating content with and for students that look like me and that have similar cultural experiences. It brought me so much joy to be able to share university resources tailored to Black students in need.
This past academic year with Homeroom was very special because, for the first time, they collaborated with the BPO and were able to have a group designated for Black students, thereby creating a safe space on campus. It was truly an honour for me to lead that group and teach Homeroom material with an inclusive lens. The laughs, smiles and memories shared in sessions, at games nights and through special speaker events will forever have a special place in my heart.
These on-campus jobs have truly shaped and prepared me for my next life chapter.
