 “Self-expression has been and is one of the core pillars that hold up my foundation of success. In my generation, I feel it is my responsibility to become very active in my community to change our world for the better. Enrolling and excelling in the Digital Communications program at Camosun and my community involvement have motivated me to engage in an active role in my community and improve others' lives within it. Actively involved, and offering my knowledge and experience to those who need it, has reinforced my life goal to allow others to benefit from my experience and actions.

My experience was so unique from start to finish, and to where it has led me to now, that I wanted to share it with others. The best way I knew how to do that is to give back. I've created an entrance award called The Leap of Faith for the Digital Communications Award tailored towards those who need that extra boost, to those who have little to no prior education that want to level up and reinvent themselves. My award will be $1,000 dollars annually to help start funding this scholarship for the Digital Communications Program. As I continue to grow personally and professionally, so will those in my community. To be the change we wish to see in our world today, the thought or the intention alone is not enough. We need to start looking at similarities in our fellow brothers and sisters instead of differences and be the change as a collective. Even the smallest pebble tossed can create ripples.”
