Meet Ishan, a second-year Innis student and the Skills Team Lead for the OSL!
I’m a second year international student in the Computer Science Specialist Program.
I work at the Office of Student Life, as a Team Lead for Community Development through the Skills portfolio. We provide services through programming to encourage learning outside the classroom! Apart from that, I am one of the ambassadors for the new build at Innis and like to be involved here and there 🙂
Being the Team Lead means that often you have to coordinate a lot of things at once to make into one final program/event. This rewards you with a lot of leadership and management skills. Apart from that, the appreciation you get from others and reflection on how the event went out is also something to look forward to. The challenging part is that for any successful programming there’s a lot of parameters that need to be checked and often they need to be done at very random times. This is hard to manage with school and unprecedented events like the snowstorm.
Yes! There’s a Humanities and Social Sciences event coming up on Feb 26 for students in those areas who want to interact with upper year mentors for any question they have. We, in partnership with the ICSS, are also organizing a trip to the Ripley’s Aquarium on Feb 26 as well. Lastly, I hope to end the semester with a nice stress-buster movie night.
Have faith in yourself and don’t overwork yourself. Health comes first.
Don’t be stressed about doing everything at once and then hope to succeed equally in all of them. The brain is a muscle not a computer! Workout more 😀
