What is the biggest lesson you learned through CSA?
The importance of building relationships and working in team settings. There is nothing more rewarding than working in a team setting and accomplishing goals collectively.
What do you know now that you wish you knew as a student leader?
I wish I knew that it’s equally important to share negative outcomes as it is to share the positive ones, and that I was never alone in my work. There are many moving parts within student government; it is important to understand that they’re all interconnected and affected by each action taken.
What is your favourite CSA memory?
I would say one of my favorite memories, beyond the relationships and friendships, was when I had the opportunity to emcee CSA’s 40th Anniversary Gala, hosted by St. Clair SRC in Windsor. To be in a room with that many incredible individuals who all helped shape Ontario’s post-secondary sector was a true honour. It was a fantastic evening!
