Biography

Hi! I am a 2nd year BA psychology student with a concentration in health and well-being and a minor in sociology. I am very passionate about mental health and promoting accessible resources to students and youth. I believe in the importance of learning holistic wellness techniques, effective coping mechanisms for anxiety and stress, and healthy strategies in dealing with our emotions. Once I finish my studies, I hope to become a mental health counsellor.

I am an ambassador for Cam’s Kids, a Mental Health Champion, and a volunteer for The Wellness Centre. I was also a mentor for the First Year Connections program.
