Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I love to play basketball and now am attending Western University for Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science! I am currently VP Propulsion on Western’s Rocketry team and act as a student mentor to many first year students as well!
What habits did you develop in sport help you become successful in your academics?
I developed leadership, organizational skills, determination and hard work. I apply these skills every day to help stay on top of my heavy workload and commitments to make sure I am always putting my best effort forward.
What is something you have done outside of a sport you’re passionate about?
Being an Engineering “Soph” /Mentor/ Orientation Leader is something that I am really passionate about. I really love and care for the engineering community and how helpful and awesome everyone is. I love my first-year students I get to mentor and help as well as show them how great engineering is as well.
What advice do you have for parents, coaches, or sport administrators to improve inclusion in sport?
I think promoting inclusivity through various campaigns like the 52 Strong campaign, helps to highlight our differences and what can make us great. Also, after completing a variety of EDI training myself, I can see all the ways where I can improve on being inclusive. If we implement this training to coaches and players, I believe it would be a step in the right direction for sport!
