It is better to jump in and encounter the imperfections than be paralyzed by trying to achieve perfection.
Master’s Student Shantelle Medel is the winner of the Student-Community Engagement Competition
Master's student in Health Sciences Shantelle Medal's project was recognized as the winning project of Student-Community Engagement Competition last year.
Community-engaged projects can be surprising. But as Shantelle Medel shares with us, “It is better to jump in and encounter the imperfections than be paralyzed by trying to achieve perfection.” It’s messy work, but worth it. Shantelle’s project, We Are The World: Stories of Resilience, is co-created magazine that will showcase seniors' stories of resilience locally and from around the world.
