When I graduated from my high school and came to SFU, a lot of my good friends moved to eastern Canada and I was really lonely. However, once I joined CSSA, I met people who are still my best friends till this day.
At CSSA I’m a member of the Public Relations Department which means I communicate with our potential sponsors about the benefits of sponsoring us. Sometimes they aren’t satisfied with our promotion or have extra requirements, and I have to be adaptive. Although these negotiations are tough, I learned a lot of communication skills and had a peek of my future working environment through it. I want to become a linguist after my graduation and I think my communication experiences in CSSA will be a great help.
