Being a sustainability mentor for the Killarney Secondary school environment club has been a hugely rewarding experience. I have always been passionate about protecting the environment and wanted to change the way society interacts with it. Having the chance to share my enthusiasm with these students and help them achieve their goals has been gratifying.
This opportunity has allowed me to impart the knowledge and experience I have gained at SFU and in volunteering with environmental organizations. My participation in this program has allowed me to learn as much as the club has; it’s something I wish I had when I was in secondary school.
