I chose to get involved in order meet new people with similar interests to mine, make networking connections and develop my skills. The most rewarding aspect of my work with Hi-FIVE is having the opportunity to do something that I’m passionate about while making a meaningful difference in the lives of SFU students.
We are constantly working to decrease the stigma around mental health on our campuses. Working with a group of people who have the same results-driven outlook as I do keeps me motivated and has made my volunteer experience an exciting one where no two days are exactly the same. When you give up your time in a capacity that you enjoy, it becomes easy to make time rather than just finding it.
