Nell Jedrzejczyk, a fourth-year student in the Faculty of Environment, joined Ancillary Services out of a desire to learn more about social justice and fair trade. Jedrzejczyk is working on growing the SFU Fair Trade Ambassador program, one of many programs that was instrumental in securing SFU's Fair Trade Gold Certification. The pandemic shifted Jedrzejczyk’s community outreach online. She helps organize virtual presentations, movie nights, workshops and a hackathon.
“Joining the co-op allowed me to test out different fields,” says Jedrzejczyk. “It really gave me a lot of confidence in what I'm able to do on short notice and helped develop my confidence as an advocate. Going forward, I now know I definitely want to be working with people through advocacy in my community."
