I am incredibly lucky to be able to volunteer as a University of Alberta student ambassador for the last three years which among other roles, allows me to share everything I love about our university with prospective students through leading campus tours. I also volunteer with the Steadward Centre at the UofA by helping adults with impairments engage in physical activity. Not only does volunteering give me a mental break from the stresses of university life but allows me to get to know a diverse range of people. When I first started volunteering at age 13, I was very shy but volunteering with various organizations soon brought me out of my shell. To this day, volunteering helps me gain many transferable skills!
