Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.):
I'm in my mid 20s, so I've had time to accumulate many interesting experiences. I've worked at least 20-30 hours per week the majority of the time I did my undergrad, and have worked 2-3 jobs while volunteering at 1-2 places simultaneously for the last 2.5 years. I currently work three jobs. Store manager of a popular retail store for 2.5 years with sales of 2.5 million per year where I managed a team of 20-30 people. Restaurant and retail work with a lot of managing experience. Crisis line responder for 2.5 years. Two poster presentations, a published abstract, a research grant of $1000. Food advocate, a student coordinator of a food lab, student leader in a multi-stakeholder food policy group that advocated for a food policy on my campus, panelist at a conference speaking about my experiences in food advocacy and student led initiatives. Science and math tutor for the last 3.5 years (still tutoring). A few awards and scholarships. Volunteered in a hospital, and I now work for the hospital where I play a small role in the health care team, but work directly with nurses, and spend 100% of my shift interacting one-on-one with complex continuing care patients. I put personal details and experiences from my life in the diversity of experiences section that I felt were important in shaping who I am as a person. I was a delegate at an international youth summit of youth leaders from about 100 countries. I worked as a research assistant for the federal government for 2 years while I was a student, and have now begun a three year term with them (this wasn't on my application because I started in September).
My first time applying, and I still need to hear from a few Ontario schools.
