Hi everyone, my name is Jacky and I was the Core Communication Ambassador for York is U in 12/13. I was also very involved in 11/12 as a volunteer/coordinator for many events. I am currently pursuing my Honours Marketing degree at York University, which hopefully will be achieved by summer 2014. As a past YISU Ambassador, I will like to share my top three things I enjoyed/gained through my experience.
1. What I really enjoyed during my time so far at York is U is meeting a lot of great people. Although it sounds cliché, I have met some of my greatest friends so far through this experience. York is U has always had a welcoming environment, which made it easy to meet a diverse number of people.
2. Another great thing through York is U for me is that it opened up many opportunities for me. York is U was able to sponsor me to go on a Leadership Retreat during reading week, where I was able to learn new leadership approaches, and develop my own personal self.
3. Lastly, through this experience I was able to develop my professional self. I needed to gain some experience in my field of study, and York is U was an awesome way to do so. Not only does it shows you are invested in your University; I was able to translate some classroom learning to my work.
What my future holds now is still a blur. I still have one year left at York University, which might lead to graduate school. I really hope to continue my leadership experience and help others by being part of YU LEADERSHIP in some way. My vision for the future is that every young person will be able to realize they have the power to create positive change in the world.
