Meet the Member Monday — Hi, I’m Amy!

A new semester, a new series for you to enjoy! This year, our chapter wants to focus on our connection with our school, our connection with fellow student groups, and our connection with you, our audience! Our first step to achieving this is to introduce you to our team.

 

Today we are starting with myself, the gal behind the series.

 

Hi, I’m Amy! I am in my third year of the Concurrent Education/French Studies Program which means that I am currently in teacher’s college. I am also one of your HC UWindsor Campus Correspondents. I have been a member of this chapter since my second semester of my first year, and I have just recently taken over this position. I am so excited to share some new and fun content on our site!

 

Now, let’s get down to business:

 

What brought you to HC UWindsor?

In my first year of university, I had a mentor through a different program our university offers. My mentor was the campus coordinator for this chapter, and after much convincing because of my worry on the time commitment, I joined the team. The rest is history.

 

What do you do for HC UWindsor?

I am currently one of the Campus Correspondents, which means I do a lot of the behind the scenes work, but I have been a writer and a part of the social media team previously. Although I have taken on a new role, I’ll always stay true to my writing roots. This is why I am creating this series!

 

What is your favourite colour?

Maroon. I can’t get enough of those fall tones!

 

Tell us three fun facts about yourself!

I am fluent in both English and French, I eat chocolate on the daily, and I can’t leave the house without making my bed.

 

What is your favourite quote?

“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!”—Dr. Seuss; Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

You can truly never go wrong with Dr. Seuss.

 

What is your best advice for fellow students?

Get yourself a planner. Whether that be the calendar app on your phone, an actual paper planner, or just a random page of paper, you need to organize yourself. It is the thing that has kept me organized! I use both my calendar app and a paper planner.

 

What career do you hope to have once you graduate?

The dream has always been to become a French teacher.

 

That’s it for our first week of Meet the Member Monday! Be sure to come back next week to get to know another member of our team.
