What makes you want to giveback through SOS?

My motivation to give back as a member of the Student Advisory Board stems from the significant impact SOS has had on my personal and academic journey over the past four years. The commitment of the organization to the development of leaders not only on campuses across North America but in communities in Latin America is something that I have been, and continue to be, proud to be a part of. Whether through leading an Exam-Aid session or helping to organize various events around campus, the experience that I have gained as a member of the University of Windsor chapter has helped to shape my social and professional skillset and outlook. My decision to pursue the MSc Global Health degree which I am currently completing was in fact inspired in large part by the unique perspective on international development integral to the mission of SOS. I understand from experience the value in having strong mentorship. As such, the opportunity to remain involved with the organization in this capacity is something that I am truly looking forward to.


Throughout my undergrad I had the incredible privilege of working as an Exam-Aid Instructor for various math and economics courses with the University of Windsor chapter of SOS. Additionally, in my fourth year I was selected to serve as the VP of Math & Physics Exam-Aids. Through these positions, I have gained experience in launching new course offerings, facilitating team meetings, and organizing the Exam-Aid schedule, among other various tasks. I feel very blessed to have been a small part of the incredible system that has been built over time by countless SOS volunteers at the University of Windsor.

If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would it be - and why?

Will Smith. I am consistently impressed by not only his on-screen accomplishments but also his unwillingness to settle for anything but the best version of himself.
