"To summarize the entire experience, the EWB national conference gave me an extremely diverse look into how to think globally as an engineer, having been –in my opinion- the most important learning experience I have had yet in my engineering education."

~Attended the Engineers without Borders National Conference

"My experience at IFPDA has already impacted my immediate future by way of numerous opportunities. Since my return I have already applied to an exhibition at IPCNY (International Print Centre New York, a participant in Print Week), and I intend to propose a group show of Canadian printmakers at Highpoint Centre for Printmaking. As well, the innovative book works I saw at the Editions|Artists’ Book Fair have inspired and stimulated new ideas for my own practice. ..In terms of future impact on professional growth, I will be applying to the residencies I researched for post-graduation development, as well as pursue the possibility of commercial representation with several of the galleries I engaged."

~Attended the International Fine Print Dealers Association Print Fair

"We have several events planned to share the information from the conference.  We have permission from conference speakers to share information in a “Providing Health Care to Marginalized Populations” session for our classmates.  We are also planning a session on “Supporting a Survivor of Sexual Assault” for our classmates based on several conference sessions.  One of our group leaders, Niresha, is writing an article for The Akili Initiative, a global health blog, about the obstacles to comprehensive sex worker health care. This conference has enriched our ability to provide comprehensive, respectful care to all patients with a more thorough understanding of social contexts to health.  It has also clarified and enhanced our roles as advocates for our patients and educators for our colleagues."

~Attended the Women’s Health Conference

"What is next? Well, this has only further instilled my love of travelling and experiencing new cultures and new places. It also has put a new light on South America for me. I have known for a while that I would like to work as a nurse abroad, but now I am looking into possibly spending a couple of years there. I have also re-applied to be the Community Service Learning Leader for next year, so I can continue working on my leadership skills. This is a passion of mine. I will continue to travel and look critically at situations around the world and do my best to continue to have global awareness and share that with other people."

~Participated in a Community Service-Learning trip to Ecuador
