How do you give?
I see community service as the key element to my future. I believe that each person should leave the world a little better than how they found it.
I volunteer at the Global Gathering Place with newcomers at their classes and assist them to settle here. On campus, I am involved with Bangladesh Undergraduate Student Federation and AIESEC to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through volunteering and raising funds.
Besides that, I mentor kids to help them reach their goals. It's a great way to make a difference in a kid's life. It allows me to take the skills and knowledge I have and give them to a kid who might otherwise struggle.
After one-year of studying at the University of Saskatchewan, I decided to become a peer mentor with the College of Arts & Science; specifically, for the Indigenous Student Achievement Pathways (ISAP).
By joining ISAP, it has encouraged me to be a role model for first-year Indigenous students and inspires my peers to do the same for future Indigenous students.
I know first-hand that the topics of Indigenization and decolonization around education, or in current events, is extremely prevalent and can be overwhelming. I have found that establishing a student-to-student relationship provides better insight on potential academic struggles. Achieving an interdependent relationship while in ISAP has proven beneficial in maintaining my academic success by reducing the stereotype threat.
I give by volunteering at events, both on and off campus. Whether it is supervising a science challenge, fundraising for a hospital or being a member of a take down crew; each volunteering event is a fine opportunity to be of service to others, contribute my effort and connect with people.
From a run for the cure cancer event, where I cheered people on to the finish life, to providing information to new students about resources available to them, volunteering brings me a sense of purpose and great satisfaction in being of help.
