Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

During my past three years in the nursing program, something I’ve really felt is the unity and spirit of collaboration between nursing students. We all share some sort of common ground from our desire and drive to be in this program, and being on MUNSS is a great way to get more involved and give back to this place I’ve called home. I’m a bit of a dreamer and I’m passionate about making changes that can create a positive impact on a larger scale, so I’m excited to bring our collaborative voice to CNSA!

What are some goals this year regarding your MUNSS role (i.e. plans, events, changes you want to make, etc.)?

We (CNSA Representatives) want to continue to raise awareness about CNSA and get nursing students involved by hosting monthly chapter meetings. I’m hoping this will be a space where nursing students will feel connected, heard and empowered! We want to bring your concerns to faculty and the larger body of CNSA and other stakeholders. Lastly, I’m so excited about National Nursing Student’s Week in November – we’ve been planning events that will celebrate you and our community here!

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Surround yourself with quality people and reach out for support when you need it! Enjoy your time here by appreciating every moment and experience you get. Remember that you don’t have to know everything and have it all together. Also, there are so many possibilities and opportunities with a nursing degree, so it is totally okay if you aren’t a fan of clinical and can’t see yourself working in a hospital in the future! And finally, please reach out to me or any other members of the executive throughout the year if you have any questions/concerns, we are here for you! 

A fun fact about yourself, or the craziest thing you’ve ever done!

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I had heard about MUNSS from a few friends who were involved and organized events and projects, and it reminded me of how much I loved being involved in high school. I have always volunteered and participated in outreach initiatives, and I decided it would be an honour to advocate for my peers.

What are some goals this year regarding your MUNSS role (i.e. plans, events, changes you want to make, etc.)?

“Think globally, act locally”. A friend told me this once and it stuck with me. I think it’s important to understand that big movements don’t happen at once, but with small first steps. My goal is to encourage advocacy efforts and to foster curiosity amongst our students.

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes or to take a break once in a while. This is a tough program and everyone should be proud of their accomplishments and progression. We live and we learn, and this is our safe environment to learn from mistakes!

A fun fact about yourself, or the craziest thing you’ve ever done!

I’ve always wanted to be an opera singer.
