The effectiveness of my verbal communication can be evidenced in the success of these various fundraising initiatives for non-profit organizations including UNICEF, CNIB, BC Cancer Foundation, PLAN, Effect Hope, Doctors without Borders, CAMH and Diabetes Canada. My passion for educating the public about the organizations’ local and international humanitarian initiatives resulted in an above-average number of donations while working for PLAN International Canada in 2012. Similarly, I raised the highest number of donations while fundraising for Iluvatar’s Breast Cancer Foundation campaign in 2022; our office achieved the highest number of donations Canada-wide. I was also awarded for achieving one of the highest numbers of sales during Iluvatar’s NASCAR campaign in 2022. Lastly, I have over 5 years of experience in positions that required me to provide exceptional customer service and use conflict-resolution strategies to address customers’ concerns in the most pleasant and professional manner.
I have developed advanced formal writing skills over the past 8 years at York University while doing in-depth multidisciplinary research on partnership-centered solutions for socioeconomic, sociopolitical, and biomedical barriers. These barriers are faced by vulnerable demographics including minority groups, people struggling with addictions, indigenous people, people of color, people struggling with poverty, refugees, immigrants, the LGBQT community, seniors, children, and people struggling with medical conditions. I have experience using various computer software like Zoom, Zotero, Microsoft’s outline view feature and Padlet to organize and track research information, as well as network with colleagues. As a result, I have excelled in academic work. My research proposal, which is a primary quantitative study on partnership- centered solutions to barriers faced by vulnerable demographics, was nominated for an award and funding in the fall of 2022.
During my time tutoring and teaching grades 1 and 2, 3 and 4, as well as 7 and 8 combined classes, I maintained written communication of students’ records through weekly summary of lesson plans and monthly grade reports. Those experiences greatly enhanced my multi-tasking and time-management skills. I have collaborated with team members to plan and set up events at various retail stores while fundraising for Breast Cancer Foundation and doing sales for NASCAR in 2022. We used upbeat music at the events, as well as challenged and encouraged one another in order to maintain a positive and goal-oriented attitude. I also have over 3 years of experience creating interactive activities that incorporate my students’ different learning styles. And I am currently collaborating with university colleagues on a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) project by networking with Madawaska Valley Food Bank to create a website for them that includes member registration, reservation and donation features.
